    Default right and up action problem

     public void buttons(){
    	 int c = WHEN_IN_FOCUSED_WINDOW;
     
    		Action right = new AbstractAction() {
    		    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
    		    	player.setVX(2);
    		    }
    		};
    		Action stop = new AbstractAction() {
    		    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
    		    	player.setVX(0);
    		    	player.setVY(0);
    		    }
    		};
     
    		Action up = new AbstractAction() {
    		    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
    		    	player.setVY(-2);
    		    }
    		};
    		   getInputMap(c).put(KeyStroke.getKeyStroke("D"), "pressed");
    		   getActionMap().put("pressed", right);
    		   getInputMap(c).put(KeyStroke.getKeyStroke("released D"), "released");
    		   getActionMap().put("released", stop);
    		   getInputMap(c).put(KeyStroke.getKeyStroke("W"), "pressed");
    		   getActionMap().put("pressed", up);
    		   getInputMap(c).put(KeyStroke.getKeyStroke("released W"), "released");
    		   getActionMap().put("released", stop);
     
     }

    Why is that when I press W or D it goes up...

    What is the problem?

    D should go right

    How does the program know the difference between "pressed" and "pressed"
    Try using different Strings.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
