Class Overview

This is the standard key listener for alphabetic input on 12-key keyboards. You should generally not need to instantiate this yourself; TextKeyListener will do it for you.

As for all implementations of KeyListener, this class is only concerned with hardware keyboards. Software input methods have no obligation to trigger the methods in this class.
