Secondary Windows and Utility Windows
The following table lists the keyboard operations for secondary windows (dialog boxes and alert boxes). Utility windows use the same operations. For comprehensive treatment of dialog boxes and alert boxes, see Chapter 8. For a discussion of utility windows, see Utility Windows.
Keyboard navigation support for the
JDialogPane component is not fully operational in the Java 2 SDK. The action specified for the Escape key must be programmed by the developer.
|Alt-F6||Navigates into secondary window; when in secondary window, navigates to the associated higher-level window|
|Escape||Activates Cancel button (no need for keyboard focus)|
|Enter, Return||Activates default command button (no need for keyboard focus)|
