Tab, Shift-Tab The forward movement is done with the Tab key, and the Shift-Tab key combination will move backwards. This is the default value.
Passing Last Char When the last char is reached, it automatically moves to the next control.
Enter, Tab, Shift-Tab Similar to Tab, Shift-Tab but upon pressing Enter it moves to the Next control too.
