Hi,
I was making a menu bar for my JFrame, which contains a menu item named "Help".

I'm wondering how to make F1 a shortcut to that menu item. I thought of using .setAccelorator()., but that didn't seem to work.
So can you show me how?

Thanks!

Try to use KeyStroke.getKeyStroke Class with java.awt.event.KeyEvent.VK_F1. and registerKeyboardAction.
that all what you need.

Hope it helps

Could you please be more specific?

That's as specific as anyone should need to be.
