Hi
I have developed a java(JDK1.1) applet that uses TextFields and Buttons to obtain input from the user.  I would like to be able to set up the ability for
the user to "Tab" and "Enter key" through the fields.
Any help would be appreciated.

add an KeyListener to thetext field and process there all the key events that are performed by the user.
Please give more details about what have you in mind about the behaviuor of the Tab and Enter keys.
