I have made a password protection program, but after typing the password and pressing the enter button notting happens.
I need to press the Tab button on my key board and press spacebar so that it will run.
My purpose is to press the JButton after typing & pressing the enter button on my keyboard, to do that i need to do setFocus, but i dont know it in Java can anyone pls. help me.
Thanks and GodBless.

I am going to assume that you are using a JPasswordField or a JtextField for the password entry.
If so, you can just addActionListener to your Field and have it call the same method your JButton calls to perform the validation.
