I have a JComboBox inside a JTable. When it has editing focus, it takes me two tabs to traverse to the next cell.
All my other cell editors based on JTextField are working fine. I did have to extend JTextField and set isManagingFocus on the JTextField to true.
I have tried this with the JComboBox as well as creating my own JComboBox editor using the extended JTextField with no luck.
Can anyone help? Thanks.

You might try adding a keyListener to the combo box. When it sees a tab it could call stopEditing() on the table, and send the tab onto the table. Don't know if that would work. Or you could kludge it to send out a second tab event....

I so far have been unable to catch a tab key in a JComboBox. I tried adding listeners to the components, but to no avail for the Tab key.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
