It is not able to got to the next focusable component in the applet from a textarea using the tab key. There is a specific requirement for going to the next component without using the mouse click.
The tab key is not working for this purpose in a textarea component. Can anyone suggest a way out?.
Thanks
Sriram

Dear Sriram
At the particular key event when you want to transfer focus
use the method
transferFocus()
It is a method of Component class and it transfers focus to the next component.
