Hi Richard. You are "locking" fields. I am setting the traversalOn to false. The reason I use this is because a locked field will still show the focus border, which I do not want. I suppose I can lock the field and lock the field. I will play around with it.

If you're seeing something different we need to dig into specifics to discover the differences. But once we do I'm confident we can get it to work for you.
