I want to create a menu with hotkeys in applet using AWT only. I have 2 frames , the top frame contains the applet(menu).I have used PopupMenu passing MenuShortcut in the conmstructor/calling the setShortcut method of MenuItem. Tho' it displays the short cut key in the PopupMenu( ctrl-C) but does nothing when the shortcut key is pressed. I have added ActionListener to the MenuItem and it responds to mouseClicks properly.The problem is with the shortcut keys only.I want to use AWT only. Please give me a viable solution preferably with example The code is as folls.
