For disabling focus, try using <SWFloader component>.mouseChildren = false;
Regarding Text box (i.e. TextInput I guess), place an event listener on focus and programatically make the text selected.
Thank you for your response.
Actually I don't want to restrict Mouse Clicks on that SWF flash. Just want to restrict keyboard access there. There are few nodes in that flash which are clickable and we need to click on them.
For TextInput fields. I already have tried programming for focus event. And tried to select text. But that doesn't hold selection for more than a few micro seconds and selection goes away and cursor goes back to beginning of text.
One problem I see is that flash is written using Action Script2 whereas Flex is usign Action Script 3. Do you see any problem there?
