Hi everyone,
I have a problem. Within my JPanel I have several textfields and one button.
Because the button is located right of my first textfield, when I use the tab key the focus is jumping from the first textfield to the button. But I want the focus to jump from the first to the second textfield. Because I don't want to change the visual order of my components, do you have any idea?
Regards,
ulrich
