    Can Director control keyboard and focus

      Can Director Do this?

      I have a flash application that acts as a front end to a mysql database using actionscript and php. The application runs in an internet browser. When the flash application is running I need to prevent the user from opening any other application.

      My flash developer has tried to do this through identifying when either the browser loses focus using html and or the flash application does using actionscript and java.

      He believes that what he is trying to do cannot be done in Flash and that it will require an executable to be created that can take control of windows and or the keyboard. He is not familiar with Director, but has suggested this might be possible. It might also mean that we don't necessarily have to start from scratch as the flash movie could be embedded with director.

      Cheers
