Hello,

You should use KEY-OTHERS trigger at item level.

Timer will do but not as consistent as key-press function of other programming language.

you should use key trigger to solve that

or post_text_item is also used for this work but not suitable.

javabeans are also used.

For any NON-block mode operation you have to use java.

Look at http://www.orafaq.com/forum/m/398028/67467/?srch=character+by+character+java#msg_398028
