you press the key, the code changes the location of whatever you want moved, then calls [container].repaint(),
so, the whatever is drawn at the new location.

if you want the whatever to keep moving whilst the key is pressed, you start a timer to do the above, keyReleased stops the timer.

I'd post a bit more detail, but as you've posted this elsewhere, I won't.

also, you may run into problems by mixing awt components with swing components

> i don't know but its still not working

you've had a bunch of replies on your other posts (are you up to 10 forums yet?),
so I'm not going to have their time wasted by posting the simple solution.
