If a Tree has focus, it will select tree items when you type letters. In general, that is a nice feature.

In my project, however, there is a requirement that certain letters are hotkeys for actions (e.g. the N key adds a node to the tree). We added a key listener that performs these actions.

Now when I press N, it first performs our action, and then selects a node that starts with "N".

Is it possible to disable the keyboard navigation in Trees so that typing a letter will only perform our action, and not select anything?
