Default button

How can I implement a "default" button in a window?

You can explicitly request the focus using requestFocus(), but the button can still lose the focus. Therefore you have to extend your containing component and trap all keyboard events, passing them to your default button. At least that's what you had to do before the Swing classes came along. If you are using the Swing classes (highly recommended), all you have to do is call setDefaultButton() in JRootPane to set the default button for a window. In other words, get the root pane of a JWindow with getRootPane(), and then call setDefaultButton() with your button as the argument.
