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.... e

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.
