Hello all

Im trying to make java robot hold down the command key.

I have used the following code.

robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_META);
robot.Delay(5000);
robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_META);

This doesant seem to do the trick. Yes I have searched on how to do this but cannot find a working answer.
Am I using the wrong keycode?

Ive also tried

  robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.META_MASK);
 and 

 robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.META_DOWN_MASK);

Ive also tried keycodes, 91 and 93.

Sorry man, the first version looks right to me. Maybe it's OK but there's some other problem that makes it look like its not working?
If you post a runnable test program I can check it out on my Macs.
