Focusing a Manager

I want to focus a whole manager at once.


Is there an easy way to do it?

I was thinking I could put a nullfield in the manager, and set isFocusable() for all the other fields to false. So I would jump from nullfield to nullfield. However Im not sure how will I make it look like all the fields are focused (i.e higlighted)

Re: Focusing a Manager

The only way I could think to do that is to make a custom manager and fields or at least a custom manager and override drawFocus on each of the fields to make it public so that you can call it directly in the paint method of your custom manager.

Re: Focusing a Manager

You question has been asked before. 

 

The last solution I remember involved having a NullField in the Manager,and using it to set the background color for the Manager so the whole of the Manager looked like it was in focus.
