I'm working on a DemoShield 7.5 demo whose first scene includes 5 or 6 quick buttons that take the user to other scenes, launch associated applications and the like. A colleague has pointed out that, from a usability perpsective, there needs to be some way to navigate sequentially through the buttons in this scene and others like it by using the tab key to jump from one button to the next. Likewise, shift+tab would navigate throught the buttons in reverse order. Ideally, when a button is jumped to, its appearance would change from unpressed to on.

I haven't been able to find anything in the DemoShield documentation that says how to do this. I tried setting jump marks, but that didn't do what I needed. I also tried setting actions associated with the tab key, but didn't get anywhere that way, either.

Any ideas out there?

Thanks!
