hooks keyboard browser (java)
I have an input field that i want to enter only numbers. There is a way to block all other keys except number keys and numpad key? Because i don't know java, can anyone know a good example about it, or something to search in google? I found some links, but i don't understand a lot. Thanks in advance.

You can listen for the events and respond accordingly, but its probably easier to just set the DocumentFilter. Here's a quick example using an anonymous class:
public static void main(String... argv)
JFrame f = new JFrame();
JTextField field = new JTextField();
if (field.getDocument() instanceof AbstractDocument)
((AbstractDocument) field.getDocument()).setDocumentFilter(new DocumentFilter()
public void replace(FilterBypass fb, int offs, int length, String str, AttributeSet a) throws BadLocationException
super.replace(fb, offs, length, str, a);
catch (NumberFormatException ex)
// Don't care, just abandon it.
