IMO, explaining Event Bubbling as the reason the TextField is the target is complicating the immediate solution he needs, which is mouseChildren = false.

Yes, it's Event Bubbling that's causing the target to be the TextField. To understand Event Bubbling, read about it in the docs, or better yet, in a book (like Moock's). But, then you MUST do it yourself to learn how it works. If you don't play with it yourself, you will never "get it" no matter how much somebody explains it to you. I'm fully convinced of that. You gotta mess around with it to fully understand why it's so amazingly awesome.
