Thread: Autofocus a JPanel

Learning how to program takes a lot of time and patience, so if you don't have the time to even narrow your problem down to some code for a stranger to look at for free, then I wish you the best of luck. You might very well find a copy-paste solution to use to solve this basic problem, but I think your approach is going to come back to bite you in the future when you realize all these shortcuts kept you from actually learning anything.
    If I do things over and over again i learn from them. Sorry i totally forgot to give you my code, anyways thanks for the help.

    Also what I dont get is that you say i should copy the tutorial and experiment with it and i would be a copy+paste programmer if I did the same with a solution from google. Im a beginner ok? Can you even delete this thread?

    There's a difference between reading through a tutorial and then playing with the examples and simply copying and pasting random lines you find on Stack Overflow and hoping for the best.

    I could absolutely delete this thread, but I'm not going to, as I stand by everything I said and I want other novice programmers to learn from this thread.
