Do you want to retrieve the data by the user hitting the Enter key or on a tab out of the field?

Hi, Kelly -
Three quick tips:
1. If you spell as badly in your source code as you do in your posts, you'll spend much of your time tracking down compiler errors. Computers require precision.
2. If you read the
Tutorial, a free in-depth resource available through
Sun's Java site
, you'll find the answers to most if not all of your questions.
3. If you find the answer yourself, you will always have it. If someone else gives you all your answers, you'll never get it.
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for one day. Teach a man to fish, he'll drink all your beer.
Cheers, Jeff (SCJP 1.4, SCJD in progress, if you can call that progress...)

Why are you posting duplicated threads?
got the same topic as this thread. I do suggest you to focus on one thread so that you can get people replies in the same place...
BTW, have you tried DocumentListener as I told you in that thread? It will surely help you...

I think KeyListener and FocusListener is the other way to retrieve data from textfield.
It is sorta covered in the
