    Can I capture the keyboard events while my UI component is busy?

    raphael the piper

      My simple Flex application is doing the following,

       

      1. read user input from a barcode scanner. 
      2. fetch data from some web service and populate the UI controls
      3. user update/amend the data and click a button to save the changes

       

      My problem is while the app is busy on saving the data,  the user try to scan another barcode.

       

      Can I capture the barcode/keyboard input while my UI component is blocked and then re-send them to any non-focus component later?

       

      Thanks
