    Set Focus - Tab Enabling

    dmcdonald
      Oh I am getting soooooooooooooooo frustrated. I know I have to be doing something wrong. I am working in Flash 8 setting it to work with player 6.0. I have an input box that I need to have the user type in EIS in either upper or lower case. All I want to happen is the cursor to be available in the text field so there is no clicking on the screen involved. This is my code:

      myeis = "";
      Selection.setFocus("myeis");
      myeis.tabEnabled;
      myeis.tabIndex = 1;

      Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. I have tried putting it before the text field appears, on the same keyframe as the text field appears. Does anyone have any ideas? Please help....
