    Question Re: Event handling

    I tried with the following code using KeyTyped Event like,

    private void tfBannerKeyTyped(java.awt.event.KeyEvent evt) {
    if(tfBanner.getText().length() > 10)
    evt.consume();
    }

    But i can copy and paste to the textfield.I don't want to do that.I have to limit the length.What i have to do?
