Unfocus console control


I’m having problem with “unfocusing” the nifty console control. I use the WASD keys for navigating in my game and I want to start up the application with the console NOT focused.
I know about the defaultFocusElement attribute of the screen, but can’t figure out how could I just unfocus the console.

So is it possible to "unfocus’ an element in nifty gui?

Thanks in advance,
