Panel Keydown Event


Do panels support any kind of key down event?

I am implementing a timeout function on my vaadin application. The timeout will only occur if the user has not pressed a key or pressed the mouse button. The main content of my page is a Panel and the mouse clickEvent was used to determine whether the user has clicked on the page.

Now i am after implementing the same mechanism for keydown, so if any key is pressed on the panel the time is reset.

The way that i have tried so far was to use the action listener and ShortcutAction, but doing it this way reconises the event however id doenst send the key press to the component.
