1. A Container (Form) is created and shown.
2. onCreationComplete event the focus of the Container is set
3. onFocusIn event the focus of the first TextField on the
Form is set (this workks too).
4. Selecting 'tab' results in the focus being sent to another
component in the background.
I have tried using tabChildren (true), as to let Flex deal
with the tab order and I get the same results as above.
I have also tried settings tabChildren to false, then adding
tabIndex's to my UIComponents and this still does not work.
I think I would personally need to see some of the code to be
of much help on this one, but just a thought that comes to mind,
really only helps on small amounts of components. But if that
background component is supposed to never really have focus and
just look pretty on the screen you can do
backgroundComponent.tabEnabled = false; and Flex will skip over
that when trying to find the next component to focus on from a tab.
That doesn't really solve your issue though, like I said though I'd
need to see how you've structured everything first.
