Description

Name: wj18071			Date: 10/25/99


JMenu*, JComboBox, JPopupMenu, JHtmlPane (the links), JTree, 
JList, and JDesktopPane are components that present the user 
with a "list" of objects to choose from. These objects could be 
the names of features in a menu or folder icons in a file 
directory. The problem it solves is it allows the user to 
efficiently traverse long lists of data to get to a particular 
entry or object (e.g. printer Teabag from a list of all 
printers in CUP02).

What this feature does is move the keyboard focus to 
the first object whose first letter matches the alphanumeric key 
pressed by the user. Subsequent same key presses move the 
keyboard focus to the next object that starts with the same 
letter.

Other keyboard based features require the user to navigate 
thru each of the possible choices presented to the user to get
to the one they want. This can be very tedious if the list of 
choices is very long.
