    Default how to focus to another JTextfield?

    If i create an object where the object is return within a private function and added into jContentPane, something like this


    Is there it anyway for me to have my cursor focus onto the next JTextfield once the user enter his info for that field?

    Once he's done with "getTextField1" hits enter and it will jump to the next field "getTextField2"?

    Java provides for navigation out of a JTextField to the next focusable component in the containment hierarchy by holding down the shift key and pressing the tab key. Pressing the enter key while the cursor is in a JTextField fires an ActionEvent. To override this behavior may be complicated.

    you can use "getTextField2.grabfocus() " method within keylistener of getTextField1 when key "Enter" is pressed.
