    how disable help window pressing F1


      Hi everyone,


      When I press F1 key I'd like to avoid to show Help PopUp Window and similarly when I press F3 key with Find PopUp Window


      I tried to use event.stopImmediatePropagation(); and event.stopPropagation(); in my handler but without any success. 



              private function initApp():void {


                  application.addEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_DOWN, keyHandler);




              private function keyHandler(event:KeyboardEvent):void {





                  if(event.keyCode == Keyboard.F1)

                  Alert.show("F1 handled!!!", 'info');



      Could someone give me a clue?


      Thanks a lot,
