Controls in one smartphone vi control other open VIs..

This is what my code looks like:
 
As I drill into sub VIs keypad movements move the cursor in parent VIs. Now that's annoying but what really sucks is when you exit a VI some times that enter command also actuates the button on the parent VI that brought you into the sub VI. Essentially making a loop. Any thoughts on how to focus the keypad movements on the current VI only?
 
Thanks!

Hi gt5816v,
maybe it helps, to check if the vi where the event occured, has the focus, or if it is the top level vi.

The VI that "should" be in focus functions properly but some keypad and button presses are relayed to it's parent VI. Does that make sense?

I have tried adding key focus to the sub VI but it doesn't seem to help. Any input would be really helpful Smiley Happy

gt5816v,

Would it be possible for you to post your VI? I looked at the screenhots you had provided, however, I wanted to play around with it.

I will build a source distribution tonight and post it tomorrow.
 
I'm thinking I need to determine if the vi is the current top level or not and disable the getPDAInput VI based on that.... Trying to find a good way to implement this now.
 
Thanks!
