hi all:
i have JTextField, JTable and JButton.
The tabbed order must be like this:
JTextField, JTable, JButton
How it behaves now:
When i press tab for the first time, the focus goes to JTextField. Again if i press tab, focus goes to JTable. But when i again press tab, the focus goes to next column...when i press tab again and again, it is always within JTable and it does not come out. The focus does not go to JButton at all.
If i extend JTable and override isFocusTraversable() to return false. I am getting the tab order behaviour like this: When i press tab for the first time, the focus goes to JTextField. Again if i press tab, focus goes to JButton. The focus does not go to JTable at all.
How do i want the implementation to be:
I want to implement like this: When i first press tab, the focus should go to JTextField. Again if i press tab, focus should go to JTable (first row, first column). When i again press tab, the focus should go to JButton. When the focus is in JTable, if i move arrow keys, it should move up/down within JTable but if i press tab, it should go out of JTable and it should go to JButton
Please help me...
Thanks a lot.
Sridevi

Use Ctrl+Tab to leave the JTable. Tab inside the table is used to jump from one cell to another cell of the table.
