    Default Diabled JButton won't leave the focus


    The Swing focus sub-systems seems defective to me as it will transfer the focus to a disabled JButton, which is in the focus cycle , but then won't transfer the focus to the next component in the focus cycle on pressing the focus traversal keys.

    Ideally, a diabled components should not receive the focus in the first place.

    I tried to get around it by writing a propertychange listener so that I can set the focusability of any component in the container to false when it is disabled. However, this code does not seem to be working. What is the remedy? What property name to use in this context?

    Java Code:
    class CustomPropertyListener implements PropertyChangeListener {
               public void propertyChange(PropertyChangeEvent e) {
                 Component component = (Component) e.getSource();
           } // end of inner class definition
    CustomPropertyListener propertyListener = new CustomPropertyListener();
           Component[] components = this.getComponents();
           for(Component component : components) {
               component.addPropertyChangeListener("enabled", propertyListener);
