this is an issue with components. are you using a button component?
to kill the focus of your textfield execute:
Thanks Kglad, but I think I am doing something wrong, because I can't get this to work.
I am actually using movie clips as buttons...
However when you click entBtn, the texfield continues to have focus. Thanks J.
how can you click on a button and have your textfield maintain focus??

Just tried it myself. Works as kglad says. So there must be something else going on.
RothRock, I would never argue against kglad as he is an authority on actionscript. I think he may possibly have been one of the creators of actionscript!. It would be like argueing that water isn't wet. I know the fault lies with me, however I don't know where.
If the textfield still has the cursor flashing in it does it not still have focus?
The only way I can seem to get the movieClip button in question (bordBtn) to work again properly after the entBtn has been pressed is with this code...
However when you now press the bordBtn, a horrible yellow highlight appears around the box.
Please note the only reason I think the textfield focus is causing the problem is that when you give the textfield focus by inputting text, the problems for BordBtn begin.
Thanks for your continued help. Jonnie.
you must be using a component of some kind. post a link to your fla.
p.s. i'm old, but otherwise have no claim to creating actionscript. or water.
Yeah, but weren't you on the committee that came up with zero?
i wish. then i'd hire some microsoft lawyers and copyright the zero.
