      Description



      Name: mc57594 Date: 11/11/99


      This applies to all versions of Java

      I have a Swing-based application that provides context-sensitive menus in text
      fields etc. They are invoked via the right mouse button, but as some of our
      applications are used on the factory floor, we need to provide keyboard
      equivalents for everything.

      We would like to use the standard windows context-sensitive menu key, but this
      is returned from KeyListeners with a VK_UNDEFINED key code. I know this is
      windows-specific, but there are a number of Unix-specific codes already defined
      in KeyEvent. Could a VK_CONTEXT_MENU code be added to KeyEvent please.
