The following frame has a JXDatePicker and a DefaultButton. If the JXDatePicker has
the focus, then ENTER keystrokes are blocked and cannot reach the default button.

import java.awt.FlowLayout;
import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import javax.swing.AbstractAction;
import javax.swing.JButton;
import javax.swing.JTextField;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.UIManager;
import org.jdesktop.swingx.JXDatePicker;

public class FocusTest extends JFrame{
public FocusTest(){
getContentPane().setLayout(new FlowLayout());
getContentPane().add(new JTextField("-------------"));
getContentPane().add(new JXDatePicker());
JButton button=new JButton(new AbstractAction("Default Button") {
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)

{ System.out.println(e); }

public static void main(String args[]) {

{ UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.getSystemLookAndFeelClassName()); }

catch (Exception e)

{ e.printStackTrace(); }

java.awt.EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
public void run()

{ new FocusTest().setVisible(true); }


I could only try the code on a XP machine, don't know about other OSes...
