hello all,
i have a few fields in a panel and by pressing tab i go through them as i want it to, but beneath this panel is JTable when i enter this table upon pressing Tab it goes further by setting focus to each column and expanding to the next row if you keep pressing Tab. I would like to set focus only once to the first row of the Table and then next Tab will be exit JTable and set focus again to the fields in my panel.
How can this be accomplished?
Thanks a lot!!!

table.setFocusTraversalKeys(KeyboardFocusManager.FORWARD_TRAVERSAL_KEYS, null);
table.setFocusTraversalKeys(KeyboardFocusManager.BACKWARD_TRAVERSAL_KEYS,
null);
table.setFocusCycleRoot(false);
