    Default robot class keyevent question

    I need my program to press the "-" (dash) key. Also, I need to be able to use the "_" (underscore) key. The only thing I could find for the dash key was VK_SUBTRACT. When I try VK_UNDERSCORE, eclipse comes up with the error IllegalArgumentException. When I try:

    VK_SHIFT
    VK_VKSUBTRACT
    VK_SHIFT

    It still won't give me an underscore.
    Can someone please help me get a dash and an underscore into my program?!?!

    Thanks!

    Jos, you are the man!!!!
    That was killing me! Can I pick your brain one more time? The last key to complete my program are these symbols "`" and "~". I dont know what they are called and I cant find anything on google about it. If you know what these two are, you will be my savior!

    Thanks

    That's the VK_BACK_QUOTE; the tilde is the same key with the shift key pressed (see your first example).
