I have a problem where after selecting a value from a dropdown I cannot select any of the textboxes on the same form until I force a focus change by either changing to another application and back, or by opening another form in the smae java app and switching back.
This only occurs in JRE 1.4 on Win2K - if I am using a different OS or different JRE it does not seem to occur. Any ideas on how to get around this?

could you paste some code where you are creating the Combo?
Maybe you are mixing up swing and awt components.

Sorry, all components 100% swing. Also works without any code changes on Windows XP and Solaris, which is what makes me suspect a JVM problem.
