Textfield is not editable

Hii all
I m working on a java application in Mac OS 10.1.3.
The problem is that in my application there are few textfields which I want to make editable.
I have used every approach...It has been declared setEditable(true)...
but still it is not ediatable
if u set some string it is accepting and showing the string in textfield (by setText)...It is also responding to mouse clicks(It is giving some printouts when u click mouse on textfield) but it is not letting enter any text. If i use Textfield instead of Jtextfield it is showing blinking cursor in starting of textfield but still not entering anything.

Hoping to get an early reply

You might find that one of the forums in the top section on the front page is more appropriate for this question. Try the AWT/Swing Forum. If you do post this question there, be sure to add a message to this thread to tell everyone to redirect additional discussion to that new thread. That way you won't get in trouble for multi-posting.

Moving to another forum since it does not fit here...
