    Navigate Focus with Arrow Keys on Container

    How to navigate focus using Arrow Keys only (no Tab/Shift-Tab) on following layout and in the same order

    Panel mainPanel containsthe following Controls as

    Panel p1 with buttons p1b1, p1b2, p1b3

    Buttons b1, b2, b3

    Panel p2

    Panel p3 with buttons p3b1, p3b2, p3b3

    ListBox L1

    A screenshot of the above is available at[^]
    I understand that I need to set the tabIndex of individual Controls but dont quite figure out in which order they need to be set. Do I need to change the TabIndex of Panels or Individual Controls or both.

    Any Suggestions?
