Is it possible to set a JTextField so that - when you tab to it - several of the characters are selected?
Posted on 2008-11-19
I have a Java app that has JTextFields.
What I want to do is set a JTextField so that - when the user tabs to the JTextField - the last 9 characters in the text field are selected (ie: if you tab to the JTextField, the last 9 characters will be deleted if the user hits the delete key).
I notice that the JTextField already does this automatically - if you manually selected the last 9 characters using the mouse, and then focus on another field, and tab back to the JTextField, the JTextField "remembers" that the last 9 chars were selected.
What I need to do is be able to set this in the code when the form first comes up - without having to set it manually.
Thanks in Advance!
