Subject RE: Disable Component Focusable Properties
Date Sun, 16 Feb 2014 14:08:42 GMT
That works, thanks!But when I apply to a login dialog contains a ListButton for user Ids, TextInput
for password and few PushButtonswhich I extended from org.apache.pivot.wtk.Sheet and I've
tried both BXML<BoxPane .... focusTraversalPolicy="$bxml:null" ... />or wrap that component
in a container then call setFocusTraversalPolicy(null), it doesn't works.
I just want to make sure it should works for org.apache.pivot.wtk.Sheet alsoso that I can
continue to try on the same approach. Regards,Jeffrey

    To disable tabbing for a particular container, in BXML you can do
    (for instance):

    <BoxPane .... focusTraversalPolicy="$bxml:null" ... />


    And of course you could call the "setFocusTraversalPolicy(null)"
    from Java as well (on the container).  To disable focus for a
    particular component only, you could wrap just that component in a
    BoxPane (or other container) and set the "focusTraversalPolicy" as
    above to null.

      Dear Sandro,

        Thanks for your reply!


        My issue is very simple to demo.

        I actually started my project with the sample [Pivot Stock


        Exactly my issue is when you start up the demo, the focus is in
        the [Symbol] textbox.

        But if you press [TAB] key the focus will certainly loss. 

        But if you can set the table's focusable property to false, the
        table will not receive the focus

        and the focus will always stays in the [Symbol] textbox.


        As you mentioned also I can't just disable the table component 

        cause I need to handle addition and deletion of the active rows
        as well.

        Maybe I can forcing requestFocus on all other components but
        then I need to create also 

        several customized dialog in order to capture user's input
        selection also.

        So I really hope can hear the good news on 2.1!
