I am trying to write a program that takes the key you type and changes it to something else. i cannot figure out what the key codes are for the letter keys. iny help will be great.

it cannot find VK_a but when i use VK_A and use A instead of a it works. i need to be able to do it for the lowercase versions

Same with the swing tutorial. I couldn't under stand it.
IMO the Sun Tutorial is not the easiest thing to decipher sometimes. Often assumptions are made that the student understands the background material.
If you do decide to continue with the DocumentFilter angle, here is an example I found that maps lower case letters to uppercase letters that might be a useful complement to the Sun Tutorial. I haven't tried the example myself, so I can't speak directly as to its applicability.
