Hi ,
i have created a login window with userid and password field in Swing.
i validate these fields and pop up an error message.
If an user leaves password field blank, a message window is displayed with message " please enter password".Now i want the following functionality to be achieved.On click of ok button in message window the focus should return to password field in Login window. how can this be done?

"Red Goliath",

Please read the JavaRanch Official User-Name Policy and re-register with a name that follows them. ( No obviously fake user-names... )

Use the requestFocus() method of the JPassword field to return focus to it in the listener for the closing of the error dialog.

-Nate
