Generating KeyEvents

Generating KeyEvents

Question:
How can I generate a Key Event from Java?I need to generate a KEY_TYPED Event, so the focused Component accepts it like normal key action.

Answer:
All you have to do is instantiate a KeyEvent with the values youdesire, and call the focused Component’s dispatchEvent() method.It really is that simple. You can artificially generate any AWTEventyou want from within a program and dispatch it to any Component bycalling dispatchEvent().
