    Input Text Question - Simple

    Hello there.
    I'm building a very simple chat application. There is an input text box to send chat messages to the room. What I want to do is: to activate the input text on ANY key so that whatever the user presses will be inputted to the textbox without the need to click and activate the textbox. is there any way to enable that ability ?

    Thank you.

    stage.addEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_UP, addLetter);
    function addLetter(e:KeyboardEvent):void{
