Is there any reliable way to give the stage focus when you first open it in a browser window WITHOUT first clicking on the stage? By reliable, I mean something that works across different browsers and on both PCs and Macs.
I've seen numerous threads on this subject, and I've read the Adobe tech note, and it seems there is no reliable way. This is a joke, right???? How in the world can Adobe ask people to use Flash and not provide a reliable way to give the stage focus on startup. Requiring the user to click on the stage first is totally stupid.
Has this problem been solved since all the other threads were posted, and if so, what's the solution?
for online swfs, it's a security issue and there's no reliable way to do it. for local files, it's straight-forward.
