tabindex HTML Attribute

The "tabindex" attribute in HTML is used to specify the order in which elements should be focused when the user navigates through the page using the tab key. It allows you to specify the order in which elements should receive focus when the user tabs through the page, as well as to specify that an element should be focusable, even if it is not normally focusable. The attribute value is an integer.

For example, in the following code snippet, the tabindex attribute is set to "1" for a button element:


<button tabindex="1"%gt;Click me</button>

The tabindex attribute can be used on most HTML elements and it's useful to change the default tab order of elements, and also to specify that an element should be focusable, even if it is not normally focusable. The default tab order is the order in which elements appear in the HTML code. Elements with a higher tabindex value will receive focus before elements with a lower tabindex value.

It's worth noting that the tabindex attribute is widely supported by all modern browsers, and also it is a standard attribute, which means it is part of the official HTML specification.

It's important to note that a negative value (e.g. -1) indicates that the element should be focusable, but should not be reachable via sequential keyboard navigation. Also, a value of 0 indicates that the element should be focusable, but its order is defined by the document's source order.
