Mouse listener does not work through application layers
I started my project using default NetBeans wizard, creating FrameView class. It handles events through ActionMap and works perfectly fine as a menu.
However, inside the frame I embedded Applet which is supposed to execute the main game. I need it to handle MouseListener events. But it does not react to any mouse actions as long as it's running. Even Debugger shows that none of three different ways of catch mouse events worked. I guess it may come from weird hierarchy of components, but could find no way to fix it.
Used Component hierarchy:
-empty JPanel with MouseListsner
--Applet with mouseListener
Any insight would be helpful.
