    Is there a way to select an InputField via script?

    I'd like to trap TAB/ENTER key press events and set the focus to another field - how do we preview key events in the event buffer and discard them (i.e. so I can trap a TAB keypress, ignore it and set focus to the next field)?

    yeah I ran into this problem also.I was able to trap the tab character easy enough however I have not been able to select the next control.

    to catch the tab character I wrote a script which scan for changesand it caught the tab character ('\t') and undid it.

    I then grabbed the event system manager but the select next item method did not work as expected
