I read in the book: CORE Java Foundation Classes from Kim Topley that the
setDefaultButton method (of JRootPane) only works when you are not in a text
Now when you want to fill in a form (linked to a database) that is a combination
of JTextField's en JLabel's the focus is always in a JTextField and pushing the
ENTER key won't work. I don't think this is desired behaviour. Everywhere where
you fill in forms you can push ENTER to transmit your filled in data.
Since a JTextField doesn't do a thing with KeyEvent.VK_ENTER, why not change this
behaviour? It would be more appropriate if ENTER would trigger the default button.
Of course not when the focus is for example on a JTextArea.
