I have several JTextfields which need to be populated.These amounts in the end need to be calculated, the way I have things now the user needs to press enter at the end of filling each field; Is there some way to listen to when the user has left one textfield and gone on to the next. thanks 4 all your time
Yes... look into the FocusListener class... it supports the focusLost(FocusEvent) and focusGained(FocusEvent) methods. You will be interested in focusLost(). Just add a FocusListener to each textfield, and you'll be ready to go. It gets launched whenever the user does something to get out of the textfield( i.e. clicks on another field with the mouse or tabs out of it ).
