i have a java application called messaging system.In that application one
of the frames requires to be invoked whenever a
keyboard short cut key(e.g cntrl+alt)is pressed.Always the aplicaton will
be running,so that whenever a user gets a new message he can see it.
the problem is the user will be running many other applications
apart from my application,so the focus changes every time.
My requirement is whenever the user preses a short cut key he should get
the frame(this frame is actually for displaying the number of unread messages).It
will work when the focus is in my application,but the moment focus changes
the frame won't be displayed.

pls SEND any SOLS..... URGENT.
