So, if I understand you correctly, I have to manually implement 
complete control by checking not only for rawKeyDown events but, 
probably, also for mouseClicks beyond the last field? Forgive me for 
complaining (not to you) but wouldn't it have been more straightforward 
simply to have properties that could be set programmatically (or in the 
properties dialog)? Seems like this object is really not ready for use.
