ActionScript 2 ScrollPane Tab Issue

Inside a ScrollPane I created a series of input TextFields and gave each an instance name, a unique tabIndex and set tabEnabled to true. The end result was supposed to be a list of input TextFields you could easily tab through. No such luck, seems the cursor just gets stuck in the first TextField. Found a handy forum post where someone states you have to set tabEnabled and tabChildren for the TextFields immediate parent as shown in the following code, note that “this” should be the path to the TextFields immediate parent:

this.tabEnabled = false;
this.tabChildren = true;

Comments: None so far...be the first!
