Can I cancel a tab index?

3
I have a form with 4 text fields. In IE9 the first text field is automatically selected when the form is opened. I have tried to empty the tab index, but that is not allowed! Is there another way to have no tab index at all? Maybe in CSS?

According to the documentation, setting the tab index of a widget to -1 (minus one) will make the browser skip that widget.

See widget properties documentation

AFAIK no, there is always one element that has focus. What exactly are you trying to achieve? (why should there be no focus?)

The -1 works! Thanks. There has to be no focus, because some browsers will show a (dotted =IE9) line around the first text field. This is very uggly.
