Hi all,
I have a JTable, & when the User holds Alt down & clicks on a Cell, I display the entire contents of the Cell to the user in a panel. However, I only want the panel displayed WHILE the user has the alt key pressed.
Currently, I remove the popup in the MouseReleased method. This means that if I want the panel displayed I must hold down the mouse button & the alt key. I want to hold ALT & click once, display the panel & then remove it when the user lets go of the ALT Key.
Any ideas?
D

Any reason why you don't use double click of the mouse? That is a more normal behaviour for user interfaces.

Hi Paul,
There is a reason why I dont use a double click - basically I need seperate functionality when you double click on a cell.
Regardless, I have figured out the problem but thanks for taking time to reply!

With all of the functionality it seems to have with variouse clicks and key combinations, have you thought of using a pop-up menu?
