Hi All,

How can I set the caret position to where the user can enter words
in a jtextfield. Whenever the field becomes active I want to set the
caret position to the end of the string in the field.

setCaretPosition(getText().length()); -->does not work

Thanks,
Cathy.

Thanks Craig. But even that does not work.

Thanks Craig. I was setting the caret position in the wrong part of the code. When I added a focus listener and set it when the focus was gained, it worked great.

Thanks again!!
