Heya, I have an swf with form components on it, that is embedded inside another swf. I want to be able to tab between the form elements, but when I hit tab, the focus jumps to an element in the outer movie, rather than the embedded movie. The focus doesn't ever return to my form, it stays on

You could also set your wmode to transparent in the object/embed tag and use javascript to change the background of a containing DIV (Not that this is elegant but should work). On 6/8/06, Fernando Castillo [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: I would like to know if I can change the stage background color
