Usually, it's blue. I'm not sure how it's red in your case! You can change the color following this example. Thanks to Peter Dehaan for his great tip. http://blog.flexexamples.com/2008/04/12/changing-the-focus-rectangle-color-on-a-textinput-control-in-flex/ OR you can hide this by using the property: focusAlpha <mx:TextInput id="txtInput" focusAlpha="0"/> Good luck. --- In email@example.com<mailto:flexcoders%40yahoogroups.com>, dorkie dork from dorktown <dorkiedorkfromdorktown@...<mailto:dorkiedorkfromdorktown@...>> wrote: > > When I display my Form elements (TextInput, Combox, etc) the red error > border is shown right away before the user even types into it.
