More on the TextField Question

Here is more detail on my textfield question.

The program is given below:

In it the method Constraint(), just provide a position on
the panel.

What happends is the textfiled will show on the panel,
and when I click on it, it does recognize as an event.
event.targer = textfield1; but I can not enter any thing
in the textfield.  I wonder what happens.

P.S. The points on the other one will also be given
if you can help me.  Thank you.:

Perhaps you need to request focus for the textfield?

solved already by using action() instead of eventhandler()

ArkadiyCommented:
The reason you cannopt edit is that your hgandleEvent returns true! TextField.handleEvent gets the event before the native code in TextFieldPeer.handleEvent, and when you return true from EditLogin.handleEvent, TextFieldPeer.handleEvent is not called. true in this case means "I processed it, do not call anything else". Return  true only if you do not want the event to be seen by anything else.
