In programming there really is no such thing as a "link," not even in C/C++.
Conceptually, linking means to connect items using some bridging mechanism.
Typically, programmers refer to this as "mapping," "assigning," or some
other term. "Linking" is used most frequently in the context of HTML.

Tabbing order is controlled by another property of a control. In Visual
Basic, this is called the TabIndex property. The What's This topic ID is
controlled by another property of a control, called the WhatsThisHelpID.

Once again, best of luck! Your developers will figure it out sooner or
later.
