Hi,
I was trying to build a form application with several text boxes, and navigation buttons.  However, I would like to enhance some security integration as follows:

When I willingly or unwillingly key down a text box (when I hit the keyboard, exclude mouse click to the text box), I would like to disable all the navigation buttons (next, previous, first, and last), then CANCEL and SAVE buttons will be active that can force users click one of them...So when I click CANCEL will "clear_record" and SAVE will commit_record".

Can anyone help?  In what trigger so I enforce?  Since I have tried several KEY bilt-in functions, that is no one works for my needs.  Any codes provided will be greatly appreciated!  Thanks in advance!
