I am reusing Dan Carr's AIR browser sample application (http://www.adobe.com/devnet/air/flash/articles/air_browser_sample_appl ication.htmlhttp://www.adobe.com/devnet/air/flash/articles/air_browser_sample_appl ication.html), but I am having a problem where I cannot type certain keyboard keys (specificially lowercase "e", "f", "h" - this takes me to the home page, "l" - also takes me to the home page, but I think it is reloading the default page, and "r").
I am suspecting that the HTMLLoader instance (or something related to it) is intercepting these keyboard presses. Is there a way to disable these KeyboardEvents in the webkit browser so that I can have full access to my keyboard?
Sure, ditch the old AIR1.5 example and fast forward to AIR3.5 . Just open a StageWebView, point it to an URL and it'll be a standard Webkit browser. It's built in, no need for an external component. You have limited interactivity with the webpage but if you need that (which is AS3->JS or JS->AS3) then you can use a UIWebView ANE.
If you need to direct access to the browsers content I use this ANE:
Just mention it if you need any examples of either.
