I have a Shell displaying three Buttons. I've created a Control array containing each button and used it to call shell.setTabList. For some reason, none of the buttons will receive focus as I attempt to tab between them. I've tried adding a FocusListener and a KeyListener to each one but that didn't help. The code is below. Thanks in advance for any help.
package com.example.swt.widgets;

import org.eclipse.swt.SWT;
import org.eclipse.swt.layout.RowLayout;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Button;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Control;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Shell;

public class TabExample {
  public static void main( String[] args ) {
    Display display = Display.getDefault();
    Shell shell = new Shell( display );
    shell.setLayout( new RowLayout() );
    Button b1 = new Button( shell, SWT.PUSH );
    b1.setText( "Button1" );
    Button b2 = new Button( shell, SWT.PUSH );
    b2.setText( "Button2" );
    Button b3 = new Button( shell, SWT.PUSH );
    b3.setText( "Button3" );

    Control[] controls = new Control[] { b2, b1, b3 };
    shell.setTabList( controls );
    shell.pack();
    shell.open();
    while( !shell.isDisposed() ) {
      if ( !display.readAndDispatch() ) {
        display.sleep();
      }
    }
    display.dispose();
  }
}

You might get more response by asking on the SWT forum; it's not necessarily a "Newcomers" type of questions, since most Eclipse users don't write SWT code.
