Hi all again!
I'm using a Swing application and I noticed that "NextFocusableComponent" is being deprecated and replaced by the "FocusTraversalPolicy".
Does anyone here know how does it work?? All I want is set an order for my controls when the TAB key is pressed.
Thanks!!

A bit of 'light' reading

Thanks for your reply!
But in the Sun Java help pages there are not examples of it... :'( I was trying to avoid those eternal readings without examples.
All I want is a little sample for changing focus between 3 JTextFields! Any ideas?

Here's something to play around with - it just reverses the 'normal' tab
order i.e. bottom to top, but you can make it anything you want, in keyPressed()

Don't know if this is a 'reasonable' way to do it, or if there's any pitfalls doing it this way, so lots of testing required.

It seems the correct is something like this
