3449801 - Using tab (keyboard) reverts back to same field in custom MDF object


Using "Tab" button from the keyboard jumps back to the original field in custom MDF object in Manage Data


SAP SuccessFactors HCM

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Data
  2. Click into custom MDF object field in edit mode
  3. Press "Tab" button on the keyboard
  4. Observe that focus in jumping back from the next field to the original one


The reason for this behaviour is that the field in question has onChange rule attached.


For the Accessibility compliance it is designed in such a way that if a field triggers a onChange , the focus will be back to that field.

So in this case the end user needs to press Tab once again after the onChange is complete and the second time it will work fine as long user does not changes the values again.
