hello
I created a key map for control space:
JEditorPane jep = editor.getExpressionTextArea();
Keymap km = jep.getKeymap();
KeyStroke ks = KeyStroke.getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_SPACE,Event.CTRL_MASK);
Action act = new TextAction("Ctrl-Space")
{
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
contextHelpActionCommand_.setPopupDropDownWindow(popupDropDownWindow_);
doSomthing();
}
};
km.addActionForKeyStroke(ks, act);

so it works BUT:
on alot of computers the space is transmitted as well, in other words, not only does doSomething() get called but a space gets transmitted.
I notice that when I press the control key, all key actions of supressed on my keyboard but the space bar. It seems to go by different rules.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
