Using KeyListeners

I am trying to use the java awt KeyListener and I can't get it to work. Every tutorial that I watch all use the graphics system for jframes. How can I use the normal KeyListener without this?

*CODE NOT TESTED* this is the way i use keyListener... ______________________________________________ TextArea area = new TextArea(); area.setKeyListener(new HotKeys()); class HotKeys() implements KeyListener { @Override public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e){ int key = e.getKeyCode(); if(key == KeyEvent.VK_SPACE){ System.out.println("space pressed"); } } } _____________________________________
