Hope your tooth is better now.

I think you need to use both solutions.
Jan suggests setting the button's traversalOn to false so that it
doesn't become the focusedObject when clicked.
Klaus points out that you need to use the short name of the
selectedField for your current script to work.

If you put both these solutions together, then I think it should work,
but if not, please post more details and we can trya gain.

Cheers,
Sarah
