i have a drop down that id like to select after hitting tab from field 3. and id like the OK button to get selected after hitting tab from the drop box...

I don't think you have control over the order. It's probably just the order in which the controls were created. If it is an AutoIt GUI, try just creating that button immediately after "field 3" to see if that works. If it's another app, I don't think you can do anything.

You could perhaps trap the "{TAB}" with HotKeySet() and cause it to ControlFocus() to where you wanted it.

I certainly could, but might be manageable if you only have the HotKeySet("{TAB}", "_TabFunc") enabled while "field 3" is in focus.

Not ideal, but I don't know what else you can do with that.
