    How to disable menubar component keyboard shortcuts?

    Diastereoisomer
      I have a program that uses the arrow keys to move movie clips around the screen. I've also created 3 menubars with menus using the component objects.
      These objects also react to the pressing of arrow keys. Is there a way to prevent the menu and menubar components from "listening" for the arrow key down events?

      I have posted this problem on other sites but so far no one has been able to come up with an answer

      Even if this cannot be done please could someone post this as I have been trying to to find ways to do it and all so far have been unsuccessful.

      Using Flash 7/8, AS 2.0

      If anyone nows the Key listeners variables names for the arrow keys that the menubar uses then at least they can be disabled.

      Any way thanks for taking the time to read this.

      Hope I have posted in the right section because I am sure that any answer will be AS related.

      Many thanks in advance
