I've tried using the takefocus option set to 0 and 1 but either way,
the tab key still stops at my EntryField.  Below is my snippet of
code.  What am I doing wrong?

entry=Pmw.EntryField(frame,
                     labelpos = 'w',
                     value = "",
                     label_text =
'Name:')
entry.grid(row=1)
#entry.component('entry').takefocus = 1
entry.component('entry').takefocus = 0
