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.

Use Ctrl+Tab to leave the JTable. Tab inside the table is used to jump from one cell to another cell of the table.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
