    Welcome blacksadangel

    Post what you have done/tried so far and explain a little about where you are stuck or ask some questions that would get you back on track.
    Alternatively you can search with keywords like "Java keyboard listener" and most likely find something useful

    It's not possible in pure Java. You'll need to use some native code to accomplish this. For example, Here's a post I made on how to accomplish this on Windows.

    Alternatively, you can use the Java Native Access (JNA) library which has a utility which allows you to check the key state "on-demand".
