I am pretty new to AS3 and I'd like to learn from the more experienced ones how to do it right. The problem I have is: having two text inputs, having the ability to change the focus from one to another and the most important one, make the input lose focus on click outside.
The problems I faced here are:
How do you see this process implemented and what could I do to solve the problems I face?
If you are using Flex components, they are designed to make sure something has focus all of the time. The behavior is more like Windows desktop apps than the way browsers behave.
Why do you not want something to have focus at all times?
Well, I was thinking of tooltips and callouts. I think they stay up, go away after a while and the main control does not lose focus. And I think that will be easier to implement vs fighting with the FocusManager.
