SWFLoader and tab navigation

Sep 11, 2010 6:21 AM



In two applications that I'm writing, the content inside a SWFLoader does not participate in the tab navigation. The textfields in the loaded SWF are focusable and I can even detect Tab keystrokes in them, but there is no tab navigation.

The setup is very simple - an application (in one case mx, another case spark) which contains a SWFLoader.


I've seen one thread in a dev forum where the solution was to implement a focusmanager. I'm hoping for something simpler...

    All tabbable entities in a Flex app must implement IFocusManagerComponent or

    else they have to override the FocusManager.  If the sub-app is not written

    in Flex you'll probably have to do the latter.
