    Exclamation Keyevent while JOptionPane inputdialog is open

    Is there a way to do a keyevent while a joptionpane.inputdialog is open?
    I dont want a keyevent to happen before a inputdialog is open or after, I want a keyevent to happen exactly while the inputdialog is open

    Can you make a small, complete program that compiles, executes and shows the problem.

    I don't know what events can happen when a modal dialog is open.

    If you want a non-modal window, use the JDialog class.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    import java.awt.AWTException;
    import java.awt.Robot;
    import java.awt.event.KeyEvent;

    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;

    public class key {
    public static void main(String[]args) throws AWTException{
    final Robot robot = new Robot();

    robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_CONTROL);
    robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_X);
    robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_CONTROL);
    robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_X);

    String area = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("");

    }
    }
    Here does the keyevent happened before the input dialog shows, I want the keyevent to happen when the input dialog is open.

    You will need to use threads if you want the Robot methods to happen when the JOption pane is open. Not sure what the timing requirement will be to get the event to happen after the dialog is shown.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
