Thanks.  This actually solves another coming issue :)

I'm using a combobox to load a hidden field.  It can either be pulled
down, text entered, or a hotkey typed.

When they pull down, and particularly when they hit a hotkey, I want
the cursor to move to the "next" field as if a tab were hit inside a
text field.  It needs to be "next" rather than a specific field,
because some fields are hidden and reappear depending upon context.

I tried "type tab" which created an infinite loop . . .
