Input i = GameContainer.getInput()

i.addKeyListener(new MyKeyListener());

class MyInputListener implements KeyListener {
    public void keyPressed(int key, char c) {
       
    }

    public void keyReleased(int key, char c) {
       
    }
}

Thank you for the help Ra,

I Have added in these classes and methods but im still unsure of the work flow.

Could you add a line of code that prints the keyPressed to screen for example?

Sorry im really stuck on this one.

The keyPressed and keyReleased methods are called as soon as a key is pressed/released. Not much more to it. Smiley
