    apply typed text to a dynamic text field without selecting it

      I'm trying to make a Dos like flash application, although I'm finding the problem where the cursor in DOS is different the the vertical one in regular text fields like on internet browsers. My attempt was to have an invisible movie clip that said...

      onClipEvent (enterframe) {
      if (Key.isDown(97)) {
      _root.dos = _root.dos + "a"; }
      if (Key.isDown(98)) {
      _root.dos = _root.dos + "b"; } //...

      and etc. But this isn't working, I always get capitcal characters. Is there a more appropriate way to confront this problem? If anyone knows how, please help me :)
