Returns the page index or tab order of the field.
The index of newly created fields starts at 1000. This makes it easier to set a field to another position inside the tab order. The field index can be changed with the function DynaPDF.SetFieldIndex. Note that fields must be sorted by index with the function DynaPDF.SortFieldsByIndex. Fields must be sorted for each page separately.

This is for tab order index. For index of field in the list of fields, please use DynaPDF.FindField.
