Title

Capturing Keystrokes and Triggering Scripts

Post

     I have an application I created in Access that captures a keystroke when it is entered and allows me to move to the next field without the user having to enter another keystoke like tab, enter or return. The field should only contain a single number from 1 to 9 so it allows me to move to the next field once any of those numbers is entered. I haven't found in Filemaker Pro 12 a good explanation of when the script is activated when using the KeyModified Trigger for an object or the KeyModified Trigger for a layout.

     Can someone point me in the right direction?

     I want to be able to enter a series of one digit numbers in a group of fields that will automatically move me to the next entry field without any other keystrok like an arrow, tab, return or enter key.

     Thanks in advance for your help.
