Ok hopefully this will help someone someday, because when i did a search i never found it before. So maybe it's just a known thing and i'm slower than others (Don't reply on that one), On a JavaJFCTextField if you don't do a .SetPosition(1,1) first, you will not be able to get any text from that field. Also if there is a scroll into view you may also be able to do that. Just putting this into the records.
