Is there a way for an applet to determine if it's got the keyboard focus or not?  I would like to display a "game paused, click to resume" message to the user when it looses focus.  I've tried to implement FocusListener, but focusGained() and focusLost() don't seem to do anything.  Anyone know of a way to check for focus in an applet?

java.awt.Component has a hasFocus() method which returns true if the component has the keyboard focus. Applet inherits from Component so you can use that method in your Applet.

EDIT: However be careful if you have another component overlaying the applet, then you will have to call that Component's hasFocus() method.

Sweet, if(this.hasFocus())  works perfectly for what I need.  You're all right.  I don't care what everyone else says about you.   Wink

Oh come on. You were the one pleading for a medal. You gotta expect some counter force.
