Hi everybody,
I am in after almost a year.
I have a problem..
I create multiple textfields using a for loop and in that texfield I give some default value.
I want to keep a check that the value set in the textfield shouldnt exceed say 20 it can be anything above default which is say 0.5 and below 20.
How do I do that?
As its an array of textfields... I am getting confused ..
Please help
I hope I will get the same prompt replies as I use to get previously..

Hi Kajol,
I would take the approach to use Document override JTextField and use that to limit the user input. Look at the class below.

Hi Manfred,
Thanks for the help.. I could solve the probelm which I was facing about the arrays I have so other problem my program I am not using Swings ... they are just simple applets which have panels in the cardlayout ..
In the panels the first panel is the Personal details ...and in that I have a TextArea where in I need focus because when I give tab to the TextArea it dosent set focus to the next textfield which is below the TextArea
Please get back to me ...on this
