    Default Robot Exception

    Hi. I've made a program that automatically types for the user. The user types in what he/she wants the program to type, and the program just repeats typing over and over. Now this works fine with letters, but I can't get it to work with symbols. (e.g. Exclamation Mark, Parentheses)

    Can anyone tell me what's wrong? It may just be my computer. I'm running Windows 7 x64. Here's my code:

    	typer.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
    				int item = list1.getSelectedIndex();
    				try {
    					robot = new Robot();
    					String text = list1.getItem(item);
    					for(int i2 = 0; i2 < text.length(); i2++){
    						write(text.charAt(i2));
    					}
    				       robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_ENTER);
     
    				   if(rdbtnTopToBottom.isSelected() == true){
     
    					if(item == list1.countItems() - 1){
    						list1.select(0);
    					}else{
    						list1.select(item + 1);
    					}
     
    				   }else if(rdbtnBottomToTop.isSelected() == true){
    				    	   if(item == 0){
    				    		   list1.select(list1.countItems() -1);
    				    	   }else{
    				    		   list1.select(item - 1);
    				    	   }
    				   }else if(rdbtnRandom.isSelected() == true){
    					   Random rnd = new Random();
    					  list1.select(rnd.nextInt(list1.countItems()));
    				   }
     
    				} catch (AWTException e1) {					// TODO Auto-generated catch block
    					e1.printStackTrace();
    				}	
    			}
    			});

    Look at your code for '%'

    Yes, I couldn't find an event in KeyEvent for the parentheses, so the robot holds shift and presses 5 to write it. What about it, though?

    I thought you wanted to print ( and ).

    Look at your keyboard. Where is the %? What did you have Robot do to print the %?
    Now look at the (. Where is it? Just 4 keys to the right of the %.
    Do the same with Robot for the ( as you did for the %

    Yes, I have tried this. I get the same error when typing the parentheses, or any other symbol for that matter, with the shift key being held.

    Strange, I am able to have Robot print the characters in this line with no problem:
    String text = "This is the word? ()!";

    Hmmm. I'll have to take a closer look at it.

    Oh, I'm sorry, you were right. I don't know where that exception came from, but it's gone now. Anyway, the problem is solved. I guess it can only type keys that don't require a modifier. Adding the shift key worked. I can now type any English letter/symbol. Thanks!

    If anyone wants it, here is the modified code:
    	public  void write(char letter){
            switch (letter) {
            case 'a': robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_A); break;
