Hi people
I have a bean with Labels and textfields together. The data inside the textfields is a Vector of Objects. I need to be able to get the textfield to accept different datatypes depending on other dependencies like :
The value in the textfield depends on the value of another attribute called syntax which is of type string. For eg.
if syntax => "Integer" then textfield =>accepts only integers
if syntax => "String" then textfield => acceps only strings
if syntax => "Date" then textfield should be formatted with a combobox to set up a calender and select the date
How do I get the textfield to accept :
1. A String datatype only
2. An Integer datatype only
3. A Date datat type only
4. An IPAddress formatted value
Thanks
Meghna

You have to implement PlainDocumentModel on your JTextField.
May be you can have a overloaded constructors for your text field with datatypes you are expecting as parameters.Hope this is clear to you
