View Full Version : Components & Keypress

08-02-2009, 08:10 AM
Hi there,

I have a 10 frame flash movie, on the last frame (frame 10) and only on that frame, there is a datagrid component.

Before that I have loads of buttons that do stuff within the movie that need to be pressed and also respond to a keypress. for eg...

on (press, keyPress "e")

do stuff;

Now for some reason, because i have a datagrid in my flash file my keypresses no longer work. Ive looked it up and I believe that the datagrid consumes all the keypress states and locks them to the datagrid somehow.

Now is it possible to detach the keypress from the datagrid, or at least allow the datagrid a few keypresses so my flash can work normally again?

Any advice would be very helpful here, Thank you

Kind Regards
