    how do you define the tab order of input fields and/or buttons in a movie? is there a way to script it, or is based on a hierarchy of position and layering?

    myButton.tabIndex = someNumber;
    myTextField.tabIndex = someNumber;
    myMovieClip.tabIndex = someNumber;

    So, if -

    myButton.tabIndex = 1;
    myOtherButton.tabIndex = 2;
    antibodyButton.tabIndex = 3;

    then when you hit tab, myButton, having a tabIndex of 1, is um first, ;p , and each subsequent tap of the tab key will cycle through the rest.

    Good Luck!

    /me looks around for my Tab soda, "I know it is here somewhere".
