Hi, I am new to flash and I am trying to create a simple menu using keyboard up and down controls rather than hovering above buttons with the mouse. I cant seems to have my 1st button (ButtonPlay) already selected when loaded and from there i want to be able to press 'up' and 'down' to select different buttons. Any help would be much appreciated!
flash can't take-over focus. once your swf has focus, you can (re)direct the focus to wherever you like.
Im not sure I explained right,
I have 5 buttons. when i load my swf i want button1 to be highlight (as if i was hovering above it with the mouse) and then if I pressed the 'down' key then button 2 would be now highlighted as if i was hovering over it with the mouse and so on.
you can start your app with button1 highlighted (if it's a movieclip button) but you can't start it selected.
