public class KeyEvent
extends InputEvent sample code for java.awt.event.InputEvent definition code for java.awt.event.InputEvent

An event which indicates that a keystroke occurred in a component.

This low-level event is generated by a component object (such as a text field) when a key is pressed, released, or typed. The event is passed to every KeyListener or KeyAdapter object which registered to receive such events using the component's addKeyListener method. (KeyAdapter objects implement the KeyListener interface.) Each such listener object gets this KeyEvent when the event occurs.

"Key typed" events are higher-level and generally do not depend on the platform or keyboard layout. They are generated when a Unicode character is entered, and are the preferred way to find out about character input. In the simplest case, a key typed event is produced by a single key press (e.g., 'a'). Often, however, characters are produced by series of key presses (e.g., 'shift' + 'a'), and the mapping from key pressed events to key typed events may be many-to-one or many-to-many. Key releases are not usually necessary to generate a key typed event, but there are some cases where the key typed event is not generated until a key is released (e.g., entering ASCII sequences via the Alt-Numpad method in Windows). No key typed events are generated for keys that don't generate Unicode characters (e.g., action keys, modifier keys, etc.).

The getKeyChar method always returns a valid Unicode character or CHAR_UNDEFINED. Character input is reported by KEY_TYPED events: KEY_PRESSED and KEY_RELEASED events are not necessarily associated with character input. Therefore, the result of the getKeyChar method is guaranteed to be meaningful only for KEY_TYPED events.

For key pressed and key released events, the getKeyCode method returns the event's keyCode. For key typed events, the getKeyCode method always returns VK_UNDEFINED.

"Key pressed" and "key released" events are lower-level and depend on the platform and keyboard layout. They are generated whenever a key is pressed or released, and are the only way to find out about keys that don't generate character input (e.g., action keys, modifier keys, etc.). The key being pressed or released is indicated by the getKeyCode method, which returns a virtual key code.

Virtual key codes are used to report which keyboard key has been pressed, rather than a character generated by the combination of one or more keystrokes (such as "A", which comes from shift and "a").

For example, pressing the Shift key will cause a KEY_PRESSED event with a VK_SHIFT keyCode, while pressing the 'a' key will result in a VK_A keyCode. After the 'a' key is released, a KEY_RELEASED event will be fired with VK_A. Separately, a KEY_TYPED event with a keyChar value of 'A' is generated.

Notes:

WARNING: Aside from those keys that are defined by the Java language (VK_ENTER, VK_BACK_SPACE, and VK_TAB), do not rely on the values of the VK_ constants. Sun reserves the right to change these values as needed to accomodate a wider range of keyboards in the future.

                int keyCode,
                char keyChar)
Constructs a KeyEvent object.

Note that passing in an invalid id results in unspecified behavior. This method throws an IllegalArgumentException if source is null.

Parameters:
source - the Component that originated the event
id - an integer identifying the type of event
when - a long integer that specifies the time the event occurred
modifiers - the modifier keys down during event (shift, ctrl, alt, meta) Either extended _DOWN_MASK or old _MASK modifiers should be used, but both models should not be mixed in one event. Use of the extended modifiers is preferred.
keyCode - the integer code for an actual key, or VK_UNDEFINED (for a key-typed event)
keyChar - the Unicode character generated by this event, or CHAR_UNDEFINED (for key-pressed and key-released events which do not map to a valid Unicode character)
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException sample code for java.lang.IllegalArgumentException definition code for java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if id is KEY_TYPED and keyChar is CHAR_UNDEFINED; or if id is KEY_TYPED and keyCode is not VK_UNDEFINED

Method Detail

getKeyCode sample code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.getKeyCode() definition code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.getKeyCode()

public int getKeyCode()
Returns the integer keyCode associated with the key in this event.

Returns:
the integer code for an actual key on the keyboard. (For KEY_TYPED events, the keyCode is VK_UNDEFINED.)

setKeyCode sample code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.setKeyCode(int) definition code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.setKeyCode(int)

public void setKeyCode(int keyCode)
Set the keyCode value to indicate a physical key.

Parameters:
keyCode - an integer corresponding to an actual key on the keyboard.

getKeyChar sample code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.getKeyChar() definition code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.getKeyChar()

public char getKeyChar()
Returns the character associated with the key in this event. For example, the KEY_TYPED event for shift + "a" returns the value for "A".

KEY_PRESSED and KEY_RELEASED events are not intended for reporting of character input. Therefore, the values returned by this method are guaranteed to be meaningful only for KEY_TYPED events.

Returns:
the Unicode character defined for this key event. If no valid Unicode character exists for this key event, CHAR_UNDEFINED is returned.

setKeyChar sample code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.setKeyChar(char) definition code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.setKeyChar(char)

public void setKeyChar(char keyChar)
Set the keyChar value to indicate a logical character.

Parameters:
keyChar - a char corresponding to to the combination of keystrokes that make up this event.

setModifiers sample code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.setModifiers(int) definition code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.setModifiers(int)

@Deprecated
public void setModifiers(int modifiers)
Deprecated. as of JDK1.1.4

Set the modifiers to indicate additional keys that were held down (e.g. shift, ctrl, alt, meta) defined as part of InputEvent.

NOTE: use of this method is not recommended, because many AWT implementations do not recognize modifier changes. This is especially true for KEY_TYPED events where the shift modifier is changed.

Parameters:
modifiers - an integer combination of the modifier constants.

InputEvent sample code for java.awt.event.InputEvent definition code for java.awt.event.InputEvent

getKeyLocation sample code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.getKeyLocation() definition code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.getKeyLocation()

public int getKeyLocation()
Returns the location of the key that originated this key event. Some keys occur more than once on a keyboard, e.g. the left and right shift keys. Additionally, some keys occur on the numeric keypad. This provides a way of distinguishing such keys.

Returns:
the location of the key that was pressed or released. Always returns KEY_LOCATION_UNKNOWN for KEY_TYPED events.
Since:
1.4

getKeyText sample code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.getKeyText(int) definition code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.getKeyText(int)

public static String sample code for java.lang.String definition code for java.lang.String  getKeyText(int keyCode)
Returns a String describing the keyCode, such as "HOME", "F1" or "A". These strings can be localized by changing the awt.properties file.

Returns:
a string containing a text description for a physical key, identified by its keyCode

getKeyModifiersText sample code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.getKeyModifiersText(int) definition code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.getKeyModifiersText(int)

public static String sample code for java.lang.String definition code for java.lang.String  getKeyModifiersText(int modifiers)
Returns a String describing the modifier key(s), such as "Shift", or "Ctrl+Shift". These strings can be localized by changing the awt.properties file.

Note that InputEvent.ALT_MASK and InputEvent.BUTTON2_MASK have the same value, so the string "Alt" is returned for both modifiers. Likewise, InputEvent.META_MASK and InputEvent.BUTTON3_MASK have the same value, so the string "Meta" is returned for both modifiers.

Returns:
string a text description of the combination of modifier keys that were held down during the event

isActionKey sample code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.isActionKey() definition code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.isActionKey()

public boolean isActionKey()
Returns whether the key in this event is an "action" key. Typically an action key does not fire a unicode character and is not a modifier key.

Returns:
true if the key is an "action" key, false otherwise

paramString sample code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.paramString() definition code for java.awt.event.KeyEvent.paramString()

public String sample code for java.lang.String definition code for java.lang.String  paramString()
Returns a parameter string identifying this event. This method is useful for event logging and for debugging.

Overrides:
