On my program I am setting the UIManager to CrossPlatformLookAndFeel. I am running the program on both a Mac and Windows. On the mac as I tab through my JTextFields the text is highlighted and the default text is erased when the user begans typing. On the Windows system the text is not highlighted and the cursor appears at the end of the default text. I would like the Windows system to highlight the text also, I assume I need to change the a property on the UIDefaults, is that correct and which value needs to be changed.
Can't find anything in UIDefaults. However, long time back, when I wanted the same behavior on Windoze, I had added subclassed JTextField, added a focus listener, and on focus gained, selected the existing text.
