I have doubt in JTextField, if i enter some text in JTextField and press enter button,it can open one dialog box,if that dialog box closed, and again press the enter button without enter text in textfield,the previous instance in the textfield should be displayed in the dialog box.actually i am passing a String value in the textfield,it should not be cleared. actually i want to clear the String value, not the textfield.getText() value.

thank you in advance

Note that you haven't actually asked a question.

I'll point out, though, that JFormattedTextField has
a distinction between its value and its visible text.
So you could call setText("") and clear the field without
changing the value returned by getValue(). So if that's
really what you want, JFormattedTextField may (or may
not) be helpful to you.

tadi raja, please use Meaningful Subject Lines when asking questions. "Regarding XYZ" doesn't really help.
