Add a key listener to a component and look at the events; for instance, use an attached simple example. There's no KEY_TYPED for VK_ESCAPE. There is, on some other platforms.

EVALUATION Author: Artem Ananiev Date: 25/Jul/11 02:54 PM Is there any statement in JavaDoc about KEY_TYPED events for keys like Escape? Author: Yuri Nesterenko Date: 26/Jul/11 06:46 AM &quot;They are generated when a Unicode character is entered.&quot; &#8211; that's all we have, I believe. Now, on other platforms Escape does generate a Unicode character but not on Mac <span class=&quot;error&quot;>&#91;Mac Java&#93;</span>. I believe it should, if possible: I don't think there is code depending on <em>not</em> generating Unicode for Escape.
