Probably a newbie questions but I notice that when I set my onCreationComplete
horizontalGap="15" creationComplete="searchTerms.setFocus()" >
I don't actually get cursor focus until I click somewhere inside the flash player instance. The control obviously has focus but no blinking cursor in the text area until I click within the player. Is this by design? A browser thing? Has anyone over come this? How?
Once I am inside the player, all focus events work just fine. Its somewhat of a hassle because if the user clicks on another control it has focus.
what is the component searchTerms? if it is a container, try to change your focus to a component inside the containe(an input or something like that) i don't know why, but this should solve the problem.
Hope that helps!

Common problem, it's a known issue. I don't know if it's fixed in a later version but I doubt it, I haven't heard it was resolved yet. It's a Flash Player/Browser issue.
On the plus side, they should be able to click anywhere other than a component (i.e. a container) in the app and it should give your Flash app focus IIRC. (but still leave the component you want focused by default)
Thanks for your quick reply, thought it was something of that sort. FYI, you answer matches other research I did on the matter.
