2 - Make the tab control button

We don't need any complicated clipEvent script or anything to make this work. We just need a button that the user doesn't actually know is functioning. We place it off the stage so they cannot access it. In some cases, the button may be visible if the flash movie is displayed in the browser in such a way that it shows off-stage content. If you wish, you may make the button invisible by giving it only a keyframe in its "hit" frame.

Even though the button seems useless when it is invisible and off the stage, it is what will make the tab key move the cursor through the fields.
