Activating applet shortcut key in JSP page

I have an applet in a jsp page. The applet has a button with a shortcut key. I want the button function to be activated when the shortcut key is pressed (NO MOUSE).

But now my mouse needs to click on the applet first and press the shortcut key.
I want a way to activate the button function with only the shortcut key. (NO MOUSE).

Any information is welcome. Please help...

Here is the code in my applet...



And here is the code in my jsp...

I don't think the problem is related to the Applet not having focus in the browser window.
Based on the the keyPressed() method, I assume you are using a KeyListener that you've added to the JButton instance, correct?
That mechanism only works if the Jbutton has focus. You should have a look at the the tutorial on How to Use Key Bindings.
