I am attaching my complete code, which I was currently developing. I am not able to get why doesn't my KeyListener work. None of the KeyListener events are fires on pressing the keyboard. Please have a look and tell me the flaws in my code

Path.java

Does the component with the listener have the focus? Can it get the focus?
Have you clicked on the component to give it the focus before pressing any keys?
Please post the code here where we can see it and not have to download it.

Here is the complete code

The Component in this code is the panel itself. I am not sure it gets focus or not. Its the main Panel so it should have focus

Here is a simple form if my code with KeyListener not working. Listener is added to my main panel. The main Panel has the focus but still keyListner is not working. Have a look at it

You may need to setFocusable(true); on your JPanel followed by requestFocus();

You may need to setFocusable(true); on your JPanel followed by requestFocus();

Thanks that worked perfectly fine. I assumed that JPanel must be having the focus but it didn't.

@JamesCherrill

not (-:please to stop to catch the Focus:-) if you'd implements KeyBinding then you could stop to care about Focus, FocusRecycle, SubSystem Fosuc, this best Swing Listener for HardWare KeyBoard, (-: and in all cases better as memoninic as you suggested in other thread:-)

Edited 5 Years Ago by mKorbel: n/a

... if you'd implements KeyBinding then you could stop to care about ..

Yes, I agree.
For some reasons key bindings are presented as an "advanced" or "low-level" tool, and students are taught ordinary key listeners first, so for a beginner I think it's less confusing to go with the ordinary listener. For the more advanced developer, or in real-life full-size apps key bindings have many advantages.

Thanks I will try to that also . Can you give me a good working example of how to implement KeyBinding. I was trying to use Oracle one but could not get it working.

I got it working. Thanks mKorbel. With KeyBindings I don't have to care upon Focusable
