    Default KeyEvent Running Twice?

    private void txtSearchKeyTyped(java.awt.event.KeyEvent evt) {
    if (jComboSelection.getSelectedIndex() == 0)
    if (txtSearch.getText().length() == 4)
    } else if (txtSearch.getText().length() == 5)

    This is running twice; i.e trying to delete index 5 twice == error :/ .. can someone tell me how you can make it run once please? ... and is this the best way to do it?

    We have no way of knowing what this code is doing without the code that sets it up. Please do not post your whole program, just an SSCCE that demonstrates the problem. Don't forget the highlight tags.

    This is running twice;
    Must be some code is calling that method two times. Where is that method called from?
    Print out the event object to see what information it has. Maybe that will tell you what is happening.
