Flash Buttons and UI Components need double click to work. Any Solution?

I have just finished making an application for Kiosk in Flash. However while testing I noticed that the buttons I used and UI components like textfield, textarea, radiobuttons, etc need to be touched twice to make them function. Can anyone tell why this happens and how to solve this issue? Its very frustrating for a user to keep clicking on the component to make it active first and then make it work.


Note: Is it like Flash UI components need time to get active on screen and then they function?


Thanks in advance.

    Update your environment or add a .net script.


    Based on your problem I'm assuming


    Kiosk = .net system

    Touch = IE activeX object = IE forcing the user to interact with the object FIRST.


    Add a script trigger a mouse click, or disable the naitve .net feature.


    If its another issue, let me know.

    Are you sure about "twice"? Maybe the screen is simply not really well calibrated and people miss the controls? You can test that out with a bigger interactive elements.
