Scenario - I have some text selected in a text area
component. I get a callback from another program (external
interface included) to remove the selection. How do i deselect the
selected text and retain the text without selection? I have read on
the .selected, .editable, .setSelected etc, but Im not getting it.
This same prob exists with a normal text input type, it doesnt
deselect there too.
Can you please help me out? Is there something Im missing
from the help doc?
In short - How do we deselect text programatically in AS
The null param didnot work as expected, the selection goes
and then again returns when I leave the mouse button. I tried
adding a invisible botton obj outside the stage and then I gave
it's instance to the param, this worked. Now this is hidden so I
cannot see the tab effect on the stage since the button is outside.
