Hai, now i try to develope the TextFieldcomponent,
Here is my code;

My question is why after the textfield has been lostFocus,
should show the JOptionMessage, but why it show two time?
beside that , still got a lot problem need to improve....

got any example? This component is one textfield that accept the date input and validate it.


public class DateTextField extends JTextField{    
  DateTextField(int cols){
    super(cols);
    addFocusListener(new FocusAdapter(){
      public void focusLost(FocusEvent e){
        String fieldText = getText();
     SimpleDateFormat simpleDateFormat = new
                         SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy");
        Date date = null;
     if(fieldText.equals(""))
       return;
     try{
       date = simpleDateFormat.parse(fieldText);
       fieldText = simpleDateFormat.format(date);
     } catch (ParseException pe){
       pe.printStackTrace();
       fieldText = "";
       showMessage();
       requestFocus();
     }
     setText(fieldText);
     }
     });
  }
  private void showMessage(){
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(get(),"Input
        Date", "Invalid Filed",JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE);
  }

}

I'd sya that its appearing twice cause your field is recieving two focus lost events.
Looks like it'd get one when the text field loses focus, at which point you request a popup dialog and return focus to text field. Then another after that dialog pops up and takes focus.

Try removing the requestFocus() call.

Maybe cause you're it's still in the process of handling the first focusLost, when you pop up the dialog then another one gets queued.
You need to rethink your aproach I think, or track when the dialog is showing. You're current approach will also pop up new dialog every time you lose focus and the data is incorrect so you could end up with LOTS of dialogs.
