P.S. Me and some guys from school, had a band and we
tried real hard.

I hope you were older than Mr. Adams at that time, back in the summer of '69. Hard to keep a band together when you're only 9.

Don't set the default button.

Please Sirs, I am doing the bump.

Is InputVerifier + default button a toxic combination? It seems a modest proposal. I am aware of where it is breaking: the input verified-components never get a change to verifiy because they are not told their focus is "blurring" (do Javites say that?). Given alll that, I am willing to roll up my sleeves, but is there a known work-around?

Hai Ram! I have given you the answer. We are not blurring in the Javascript sense because there in no loss of focus, rather there is not a proper response to focus.

Tu sunda ne?

I understand your answer, but I would be sorry to say goodbye to a default button, since this is a familiar sight for users. I am also disappointed that Swing can't get something as simple as input verification working, something VB does well.

As for the Hindi chat, don't let's exclude other forum members. I am a student in London, and my
first language is English, also.

Actually, it was Punjabi, not Hindi...close.

Default buttons are fine, but in this example they cause problems. Not just because of the conflict regarding the <Enter> key but also from usability standpoint. Should the button perform validation of input or should validation be tied to the text component?

My suggestion, with limited knowledge of what the OP wants, is to have the textfield(s) validate and the button submit the data for futher processing.

Chappatis with moderate amounts of butter , please.

Go back to the example program: should the behaviour of the UI be the same for these two gestures?
1. with focus on a textfield, click on the button
2. with focus on a textfield, press <enter>
I expected the behaviour would be the same, but in only the first case does the InputVerifier step in to do its job.

As for snacks, as I mentioned my wife is Mauritian, but I can't get her to make me dhall pooris with rougaille and achar.
She does remember eating turtle and even monkey as a girl, yum yum :-)

MIPs?

Moderately Intellectual Persons?

Mechanically Implanted Probes?

Mesazoic Ions and Plankton?

Myocardially Infarcted Prostates?

Enquiring minds want to know.

uumm, achar. I enjoy my rotis/chappatis with a little lime or lemon achar on the side.

Monkeys...eeew! They are way too close to humans; think spongiform encephalitis or prion diseases.

If I saw the example application for the first time, I would expect the button to perform validation. I'm not sure what the OP wants. ...
