Hi
I've a JTable in a Container and when I press TAB key from JTable the Focus should be set to other Component in different container
How this can be achieved in JDK1.4?
Any Sample code?
Thanks in Advance

Krishna,
The Java Look and Feel Design Guidelines book(s) contain the information you seek.
The default behaviour for a "JTable" is to use the <CTRL>+<TAB> or <CTRL>+<SHIFT>+<TAB> key combinations in order to navigate out of the "JTable" -- in other words, to transfer focus to another component.
Good Luck,
Avi.
