button action command from keylistener  RSS feed

I'm stumped. I have a nice button action event to run a login process for my app. My GUI has 2 fields (user id and password) and two buttons (Login and Cancel)

My login button (bnLogin) has an actionhandler assigend to it to process its events. I want to add a keylistener to my password textfield so when the enter key is pressed it will accept the text and call the bnLogin action.

Here is a section of my code.


My searches on this has turned up nothing.

Can I do what I'm wanting to do here or should I rethink the way I run the login process?

Thanks for any help!

Steve

You can give textfield Actions as well. You don't need to use a KeyListener. Do it the same way you do a button.
