Bonjour Éric,
  The  rawKeyDown handler was in the field'script; now, I put it in  
the card' script and all is working well :-))
I must confess that I don't understand precisely why it does not work  
if it is in the fld'script.
Thanks a lot for your help.

The only issue that is holding with these table fields is that their  
hight and width must be widely larger than it would be necessary  
given the fixed number of columns and rows; otherwise the fixed  
limits are not respected !?!

But this clearly does not  come from scripting ; seems it'is inherent  
to the current ("rough draft") state of the table field!

By the way, what do you mean when you differentiate between "private  
handler" and "public handler", in your tutorial?

Have a nice day
