I have compiled the following code in JBuilder, and it works exactly like I want it to. But, in IE and appletviewer it doesn't work at all. It will not accept any key strokes. The timer should start when the space bar is pressed when working properly. Thanks.

The problem is the initial focus. I once had that problem too, and solved it with a workaround. Didn't solve it that is...
Anyway, it's something with the AWT-Event thread. When initialising and starting the applet you're not in the awt-event thread.
I changed your code a bit as example, and added a second Timer that gets the focus after 2 seconds. Without timer it works too, but then the user have to click once on the applet.
If you want to solve this problem correctly you've to find an expert with the AWT-Event thread.

Thanks for your help. I had a feeling there was not real easy solution. I appreciate your response.
