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.
