Hi All, I need to go to the next cell in the same row when Enter is pressed (same as Tab). I coded around it, but the problem is that the next row still gets selected for a fraction of a second, and only then the current row gets selected again. This happens because the default behavior of Enter is to go to the next row. How can I override that, make Enter work exactly as Tab? Thank you very much, Victoria
Try adding a KeyListener event to the table. When the event sees an enter key, goto the position in the table that you desire. Do a search for KeyListener in the Java online documentation for reference on using it. By the way, I've used KeyListeners before but haven't tried using one with a table. It will probably work though. Worth a try!!

Thanks, but that is exactly what I already tried. It works, but there is one big problem: for a fraction of a second (quite noticeable) next row gets selected and then the selection goes to where I programmed it. I added my functionality, but the old Tab functionality is still there. Any other suggestions?
