[MonoDevelop] How to Define Focussing Order in a Form

dows anybody know how to define a focussing order in a form containing 
entries, checkboxes etc.? Then the user can jump between the entries by using 
the [Tab] key.

I have already made two forms containing entries, checkboxes, and one sub-form 
each. In one of the forms, [Tab] works without any problems, but every time I 
press [Tab] in the second form, the entry currently in use just loses its 
focus, and I have to use the mouse to focus another entry. One possible 
reason is some self-made widget (entry + button in an HBox) in the second 
form, but I'm not sure...

Is there a possibility in MD to define the focussing order of the widgets it 
contains? Theoretically, I can write a key event handler responsing to [Tab] 
and [Shift]+[Tab] scan codes, but for larger forms, this is very hard work!

Thank you for your hints.
