I am trying to allow the user to press enter and have the cursor move to the next textfield. I have it working for the first textfield, it will move it to the next textfield but I don't know how to get it to move to the next textfield from there. Does that make since? I need some advice on how to write the code to say if you are in textfield1 move to textfield2, if you are in textfield2 move to textfield3.
