can we use tab to scroll the java frame application?
Posted by raju on May 15, 2000 at 2:18 PM
I'm developing an application as Frame, which is nothing but
data Entry application. Since it is bigger page, user cannot see it
complete, so once he finish the first part of page, he has to
scroll down to fill the rest of the data ie stored down the page.
But I also want to give the user to use tab, so that using tab he
can scroll down the page as we do in html form entry pages.
Can we do this in java appln ? Is there any way I can trap the
tab key and scroll down the page ?
I'm developing the appln using jdk1.2.2.
