Textfiled unenditable?

Hi, I have some trouble using the textfield.
I defined it in the class like
textfield t1,t2;
t1 = new textfield(10);

But, later in the program, it draws the textfiled and I seems
to be unable to enter anything in it.  Just like the textarea
set to Edit=False.  I am not sure what happened, or is there
anything I need to do to enter in a text filed.  Please help.

I don't know exactly why you can't enter the textfield.  But try the following if this works:

TextField t1;
t1 = new TextField(10);

t1..enable();
t1.requestFocus();
