Hi I'm trying to set the tab order for a select form element. I'm doing it like so: <%= select 'issue', 'person_name', people, "tabindex" => 6 %> but it gets ignored and I get this for output: <select id="issue_person_name" name="issue[person_name]"><option value="1">Administrator</option> The same syntax works for input elements so I assumed it would work for selects. I must be doing something dumb :) Thanks.

I suspect you need some braces in there. Take a look at the api for select; it takes two hashes... Your example doesn't seem to distinguish the options hash, so select is probably interpreting the tabindex as something else and dropping it. b
