AWT should provide typeover mode in the TextField class

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      generic
    • OS:
      generic

      Description

      Most serious real-world applications use typeover mode to some extent. The
      TextField class doesn't provide this functionality. Lack of it means that people
      will implement it themselves in possibly incosistent ways. This is unacceptable.
      If Java is going to move beyond the "cool demos" reputation and attract serious
      development efforts, this kind of functionality must be provided.
