i’ve never ever tried this before, so i’m throwing a stab in the dark here… but oh well.
maybe it would be possible to put a textbox within a movieclip, then set that movieclip’s visiblity to 0.
then you’d want to make sure you setFocus on the textbox, so that the curser would be in there at all times, right from the get-go.
i don’t know. just a thought.
