KeyAccelerator for many panels

Hi!

I'm developing a swing application and I want to support key accelerators to my menu options. However, I'm facing some problems with it.
My application contains 5 views (JPanel instances) and the menu is on the main view. Depending on the view that is selected, the key accelerator does not work.
And even on the views that it works, if I select a tab (for exemple), the key accelerator does not work.

Is there a code that I can put on each view to guarantee the key accelerator functionality?

Thanks!
