Hi,

I'm trying to set the focus to a JTextPane after another user event occurs (clicking a menu option for example) so that the caret is active in the Pane.

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks...

Use a method called requestFocus(); in every event you handle declare it to set the focus to JTextPane.

Example :

JTextPane x = new JTextPane();
x.requestFocus();

Hope that helps . . .

requestFocus() is not recomended, from the javadoc:

 "Because the focus behavior of this method is platform-dependent, developers are strongly encouraged to use requestFocusInWindow when possible."
