Hi Guys,

I was wondering why in the following code the output is: "~%" and not "~!@#$%^&*()_+"

1. Open a textpad (before you run it)
2. Run the code
3. Go to the textpad and clickin (so the cursor is in the textpad)

Thanks

Next I changed your do type methods so that the key events are generated in the proper order:

Got it! thanks, using the SHIFT (this will not work on a non QWERTY keyboard) but that's not a problem on my end. THANKS!!!
