I made a SSCEE code wich explain my problem. There are two JPanels, when I press the arrow key "up" I want to do something in both of them, with the code below only one panel react to the arrow key! Do you know why? can you show me a code wich works?
Here is the code, just copy and paste and see it yourself.

it seems the keyEvent is consumed by the last component added.
you may have to add a holding panel for both panels, use it's input/action map
to fire off an event to both panels
