 Description  « Hide
In the Creme VM transferFocus() actually triggers two round-trips: one for focusLost and one for focusGained whereas with the Sun VM transferFocus8) only triggers one round-trip. As a side-effect of these two round-trips the Creme VM hangs. Reason: when the first round-trip returns ULC Mobile removes the hours glass mouse cursors from a non AWT Thread and at the same time the AWT Thread tries to lock the user interface.

As a workaround instead of triggering the focus change with transferFocus() you can use the following code construct:
Container topLevelAncestor = getBasicTextComponent().getTopLevelAncestor();
long when = System.currentTimeMillis();

KeyEvent pressedEvent = new KeyEvent(topLevelAncestor, KeyEvent.KEY_PRESSED, when, 0, KeyEvent.VK_TAB, '\t');
KeyEvent releasedEvent = new KeyEvent(topLevelAncestor, KeyEvent.KEY_RELEASED, when, 0, KeyEvent.VK_TAB, '\t');
KeyEvent typedEvent = new KeyEvent(topLevelAncestor, KeyEvent.KEY_TYPED, when, 0, KeyEvent.VK_UNDEFINED, '\t');
