Hi ashwanisri and welcome to!

To do anything with keystrokes directly (rather than the text they input), you will probably want to write a KeyListener. Pasting will not count as the KeyListener will react to keyboard actions.

If you want to find the size of the input into, say, a JTextField you can use the getText() function to get all of the text in the field and then the String#length() function to find out the length of the input.
