    Default Action if window is inactive.

    Hi,
    How would i make an if function that says if a jframe is inactive for X seconds do this. So for example, if jframe is inactive for 10 seconds System.out.print ("Pay attention to me");

    Thanks
    Joel

    No offense, but it sounds like an annoying application. You will most likely need to log each 'action' that occurs, and have a parallel thread/Timer that fires periodically and checks the last 'action'. It is up to you to define what you mean by action - for example this could be just registered listeners, or registered WindowListeners/ComponentListeners/etc...
