Mnemonic related issue

I am using a radio button which has text something like 'anand2" and I want to set '2' as a mnemonic to the radio button. I have set this mnemonic key and I can select this by ALT+2 combination. But I also want to select this radiobutton when Numpad's 2 key is pressed. Numpad is on right side of the keyboard.

I also tried to set KeyEvent.VK_NUMPAD2 as a mnemonic, but it doesn't work. In this case ALT+2 combination is also not working.

Can anybody tell me how should I set the mnemonic so that both ALT+2 and only Numpad 2 key combination will work ??
