FocusListner not working on JMenu

Hi

This is my code. I don't see the focus events when the menu is focussed / unfocussed. Am I missing something here? How can I capture focus events on JMenuItem?



Thanks in advance

Doesn't matter if it is a JMenuItem or JMenu. FocusListener doesn't seem to work on both.

from the Oracle site

"Menu elements do not receive focus since release 1.4."
