Hi Ranchers,
I need a listener on a JTextField to be actioned so to speak when a click is made in the box using the cursor.
Using ActionPerformed only works when RETURN is hit.
tmpTimeField.addActionListener(myListener);
Any ideas how this can be solved ?
Is there a Click Listener ?
Thanks
/ James

Silly question, but have you thought about using a MouseListener? You can count the clicks and everything. The problem with the solution you are proposing is that even if the user tabs to the text field, the event will be fired. Is that what you want?
