I've created a form that the user enters numeric values in to a series of text Input fields. I want to allow the user to use the arrow (cursor) keys in addition to the tab keys to control the active focus of the fields.

I set up a 2D array with the names of the input fields as values. I'm trying to call the name of the input field from the array and then assigning the focus, but I'm getting Error 1067 implicit coercion errors.

stage.focus=nextCellName;
stage.focus=prevCellName;

Any help is appreciated!

Hey,
nextCellName and prevCellName are just string values.
In earlier versions of AS you would need to eval() them.

In AS3 it is done like this:

stage.focus=this[nextCellName];
stage.focus=this[prevCellName];
