How can I temporarily turn off the KeyboardEvent listener in the SWF?

I am experiencing problems when the SWF playback window does not have the focus... If the user is typing in a text field, the Slideshow is advancing when the proper keys are pressed (like spacebar)

There are several ways to do so:

1. When converting the presentation you need to disable keyboard navigation. In this case keyboard will not be handled by the presentation.
However you may still handle keyboard on your own way and control the presentation playback using ActionScript API.

2. Keyboard is handled by a skin module. You may develop your own skin module which will enable keyboard handling when the presentation obtains focus and disable keyboard handling when the presentation loses focus.

3. You may rely on the current implementation of the skin module which takes care on a value of the navigation.keyboard.enabled property of the Settings object. Changing this property value in run time you may enable or disable keyboard handling

var p:IPlayer = ...;

function onMyTextFieldFocusIn()
   // enable keyboard in run time
   p.getSettings().navigation.keyboard.enabled = true;

function onMyTextFieldFocusOut()
   // disable keyboard in run time
   p.getSettings().navigation.keyboard.enabled = false;

The following sample will illustrate you an idea:
