    Default Disable the tab button

    Hi All,

    I have a little problem, i have some sort of calculator with a bunch of textmembers which are editable. The thing is that i don't want ppl to tab to the next textarea because you need to click on them to give a certain global a value. When they use the tab the global wont get the approperiate value. My question, how to disable the tab key without disabling the whole keyboard? (The option to type the numbers yourself MUST be available.) I tried the autotab thing but it didn't work. (I did the autotab thing in the moviescript: member("waarde1").autotab = FALSE and so on for all inputs) Anyone have some suggestions?
