I built a small windows program.
I have an text field and a couple labels, a checkbox group and button, I instantiated the button in the middle of a flow layout. Now, i need to set the requestFocus(); to the button, which is name calculate.
Now what do i do to set that, so when i turn my program on, i just type my numbers in and hit enter. I need to have it set to either press enter or click the calculate button, and I can not get the request focus to work correctly.
