By typing the TAB key, the app-designer can move the cursor into another EditField box, to input/edit the content.
Some Edit Field boxes are for showing the intermidiat result and are set to "Interruptible" OFF. We wish the TAB will NOT bring the cursor into that box.
How to set it for the TAB not to access / goes into the box?

Try setting its Enable property to 'on' and its Editable property to 'off'. See the pictures in the description of the Editable property on this documentation page. I'm not 100% certain that this will prevent it from being included in the tab order, but I believe it likely.
