should help you out When you create anything as complicated as a game, you should use the model / view / controller pattern.
So, let's create a model class.
code :
public class GameModel {

    private int xCoordinate;
    private int yCoordinate;

    public int getxCoordinate() {
        return xCoordinate;

    public void setxCoordinate(int xCoordinate) {
        this.xCoordinate = xCoordinate;

    public int getyCoordinate() {
        return yCoordinate;

    public void setyCoordinate(int yCoordinate) {
        this.yCoordinate = yCoordinate;

wish help you to fix your issue I know how to implement a key listener; that's not the problem. , I would recommend using:
code :
if (event.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.VK_UP) {

will help you I figured it out while trying to do an SSCCE. When I start a new game, I create a new Sprite object without the key bindings of the old one, so my key binding data is lost. I moved my code to add key bindings to the doNewGame() method and it works now.

will be helpful for those in need I'm experimenting with JavaFX right now teaching myself how to move text and items using the arrow keys. I made a program that simply moves text around the stage if an arrow key is pressed down.
code :
scene.setOnKeyPressed(e -> {
    switch (e.getCode()) {
    case DOWN:
        circle.setCenterY(circle.getCenterY() + 10);
    case UP:
        circle.setCenterY(circle.getCenterY() - 10);
    case LEFT:
        circle.setCenterX(circle.getCenterX() - 10);
    case RIGHT:
        circle.setCenterX(circle.getCenterX() + 10);

will help you I'm using Java Processing 3 and making a two player tank game. Below is my code for a turret. Currently i have the turret's aim following the mouse in tDir, i wanted to be able to use the up and down arrows to move the aim upwards and downwards from 0 to 90 degrees. ,
aim upwards and downwards from 0 to 90 degrees
code :
x = cos(angle) * radius
y = sin(angle) * radius
tDir.x = cos(angle) * 50;
tDir.y = sin(angle) * 50;
PVector mPos; //mouse position
PVector tPos; //position of turret
PVector tDir; //the firing direction of the turret
 int gravMult = 3;
//angle in radians
float angle = 0;

void setup() {
  size(1200, 600);

void init() {
  //PVector initializations
  mPos = new PVector(); //zero til mouse x and y exist
  tPos = new PVector(width/8, height * .75);
  tDir = new PVector(); //
void draw() { 
  //clear last frame

  //check keys to see if there is new key input for turret
  if (keyPressed){
    if (key == 'w'){
      angle -= 0.1;
      tDir = PVector.mult(PVector.fromAngle(angle),50);
    else if (key == 's'){
      angle += 0.1;
      tDir = PVector.mult(PVector.fromAngle(angle),50);
  }else if(mousePressed){
    mPos.set(mouseX, mouseY);
    tDir = PVector.sub(mPos, tPos);
  ellipse(tPos.x, tPos.y, 40, 40);
  line(tPos.x, tPos.y, tPos.x + tDir.x, tPos.y + tDir.y);
  fill(255, 0, 0);
  ellipse(tPos.x + tDir.x, tPos.y + tDir.y, 10, 10);

it helps some times You should be able to catch the keydown event and prevent the default action (e.g. scrolling), then do whatever else you want with the event. For example:
