Hey there,
Does anyone know How to capture multiple keystrokes with a single listener. I just want to capture key events for numbers 0 to 9 but don't want to provide seperate action listeners for each one. Currently my code looks something like this.....
for(i=0; i<=9; i++) {
KeyStroke keystroke = KeyStroke.getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_0 + i, 0, true);
registerKeyboardAction(numberListener, keystroke, JComponent.WHEN_IN_FOCUSED_WINDOW);
The number Listener is my sole action listener but for some reason java doesn't like the setActionCommand with a keystroke object. I tried this method for radio boxes and it works. If anyone has any ideas of fixing this or even a better approach
I'll be ever so grateful
