Tab order in the internal JPanel

Posted on 2007-11-29
Last Modified: 2013-12-29
Hello, experts,

I have a JPanel inside of my JFrame, and I am setting tabbing order for it. I have done the regular FocusTraversalPolicy operations which always work in the main container. However, for the internal one, it is not used nor called in the debugger.

Anything I could be missing?

Thank you.

You mean Z-order!

Look in the JAVADOC for
JPanel.getComponentZOrder(Component k);
JPanel.setComponentZOrder(Component k);

No, I mean tab order of components in one screen

For any TAB-order (that's a Microsoft Visual Studio term) or Z-order,
apply those calls to the container.

So, for an entire application: the frame.
For the entire screen: the Desktop.
