Hi Jez,

If you want a script that checks the relevant key
codes, have a look at this entry in the WIKI :

Apart from the fact that you're never passing the
rawKeyDown in the script above, I'd say you need to
take a look at the group's traversalOn and
tabGroupBehaviour properties.

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
