I'm working on my first form in AS 3.0 and I have to say that
I must not be grasping this whole display list thing 100%. Every
help or tutorial that is out there is for starting with blank
documents and adding stuff to containers. What about design? What
happened to making a design and then animating it? I don't get it.
I have a popup window that is used for login. It's already on
the stage with a movie clip inside it that contains input fields.
How can they use the tabIndex?
Everything I've seen creates fields dynamically and then adds
the child to a container, in order for it to work. I could do that
but I don't know how to link my submit button from the library to
be added to the container as well... Please help...Thanks,
I have a movie clip three clips deep and on it's timeline if
I put usernameTxt.tabIndex = 1; and so on it doesn't work.
If I place it on the root timeline or in my document class
and use the proper path to the input boxes it doesn't work either.
And when I add borderColor = 0xff0000 to any of them in either
place I get an error like I'm missing the include...
Also if I leave it in automatic tabbing mode, not placing any
tabIndex statements, I doesn't cycle backwards and it doesn't
highlight the box text upon gaining focus like it used to. Say you
missed typed your username and you've already tabbed to the
password box, if you shift tab the username box contents should
highlight, they don't....
