Step back a bit - what are you trying to do? Trip a textEntry response on the enter key?

Subject: [Xerte] Desktop - default action key for text entry?

Did the engine ever get this added?
I saw a hint of it in the archives, but nothing definitive.

Or some way to trip and interaction without taking the focus away.

I set up a textinput in a text icon:

icontextentry.txt._height = 20;
icontextentry.txt._width = 300;
icontextentry.txt.background = true;
icontextentry.txt.border = true;
icontextentry.txt.type = 'input';
icontextentry.txt.selectable = true;
icontextentry.txt.maxChars = 40;
icontextentry.txt.multiline = 0;
myTF = new TextFormat();
myTF.font = "Verdana";
myTF.size = 14;

Now how do I stop the flow until Enter is pressed?

Evaluating keys is no good as it pulls focus from the text input. :-/
