Hi all, I am a new beginner in Java. Currently I'm having problem with the value in text field. But I'm not good in explain. So I will use example.

I had created 2 text fields A and B. Default value in Text Field B is 10. When I changed the value 10 to 4 and click on Text Field A, the value become 4.0000. After that, when I click back on Text Field B, It automatically change back to value 10. But I want preserve the value become 4.

May I know why such thing happened? Is it cause by lostfocus method or field validation method or other ? How can I solve this?

Thanks in advance. Cheers

1. A Text Field, whether that's a TextField or a JTextField holds a String. So the content can never be 10, it can be "10"

2. Whatever behavior you describe is what your code does. Do you seriously think members here can guess enough about that code to give you any meaningful advice? Recommended reading: http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html and http://mindprod.com/jgloss/sscce.html

And welcome to the Ranch!

You have added some listeners to those text fields. Without seeing what those listeners do we cannot tell you what's going wrong. That's why Darryl asked for an SSCCE.

Hey kenron, don't be upset, Darryl Burke is guiding you how to post your question here. Without those information we are hard to troubleshooting for you.

What my advice is, don't give up......keep going

Last, i want to wish "all da best for U"
