Anybody got any ideas on this one? Apart from the examples I mentioned already it would be useful to be able to toggle navigation mode on a page say where there was normal controls (input, select, etc) and say an embedded map for instance that needs mouse type navigation.
Does the fact there doesn't seem to be an API function to switch mode means it's just not possible? Hope not ..

It is not possible to toggle back and forth between the focus based navigation mode and the pointer mode an a screen by screen basis.

Thanks for the reponse .. do you think this will be possible in the future at all? Is it something that others have asked about and hence maybe "on the list" of enhancements going forward?
As a possible workaround (I know doubtful) is there native API's that would allow this and hence by writing say a java extension this could be accomplished?

We have actually steered away from allowing this functionality to help promote a consistent user interface in an application. However we are always open to listen to what the community wants
I'm not sure how dynamic it could be made though.... The BrowserField2 Java class that is used to display the web content takes a configuration object that I believe is consumed in its constructor (I may be wrong here).. This configuration object contains the flags on what type of navigation could be used in the control.. But I believe the options must be loaded before loading in the web content that will be rendered.
It may not be able to be super dynamic considering the web content may have to be loaded again into the control.
