    item renderer

    Craig Grummitt Level 3
      I have a theory that the user being able to use alphanumeric keys to jump to items on a list( List control user interaction) is conflicting with my itemrenderer editors.

      Alphanumeric jumping seems to only happen directly after a scrollbar or tab button has been used.

      My itemrenderer editors register well except for when keypresses trigger alphanumeric jumping. In these cases any edits made in my itemrenderers do not register.

      Does anyone know how I can prevent this alphanumeric jumping?

      i'm not sure whether this description makes much sense, so to help you out here's a link to where you should be able to replicate the problem here and if you would like to look at the code, it's here.

      If you are struggling to replicate the problem, I've created a captivate demonstration of the problem here.

          for anyone following this thread, the question of how to remove alphanumeric jumping has been answered in another topic here thanks to xmritchie:

          "Inside the itemRenderer add a listenter to your Input control:

          myInput.addEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_DOWN, onKeyDown);

          In the onKeyDown function do event.stopImmediatePropagation();

          This will stop it from bubbling up while you are typing. "
