I'm finishing a Flash web site navigation menu which has a text input field used for searching the site.  Everything works great.  In a layer below the text input field there is a 2 frame movie file that has a background for the text field.  I want the background movie to go to its second frame which graphically highlights the seach field when the users clicks on the search field to give it focus to enter text.  This behavior would be similar the Macromedia site's search text entry field.  Using Flash MX.  I can't get this to work when placing the cursor in the text entry field.
