Tab and Cursor Arrow Key Bindings

Hi

Does anybody know how to map a key binding so
up and down arrows can tab and reverse tab
through dialog fields?

On the default setup 'Tab' advances through
fields and 'Shift-Tab' does nothing.

SystemFiles\FrontEnd\TextResources\Windows\
KeyEventTranslations.tr has bindings for
Tab, Up and Down but changing their actions
hasn't affecting their behaviour, puzzlingly.

FYI - Upgrading from 6.0.2 to 6.0.3 fixed the Shift Tab
functionality. The dialog parameters to put Tab and Shift Tab on the
Down and Up Arrow keys were:

NotebookEventActions->
{"DownArrowKeyDown":>FrontEndTokenExecute["Tab"],
"UpArrowKeyDown":>FrontEndTokenExecute["MovePreviousPlaceHolder"]}

May this info serve you well. ;-)
