RE: specifying fields from input file

Hi Michelle,

Add a DisplayListener to your displays, and in the
implementing displayChanged method, check for MOUSE_PRESSED
(and possibly other mouse-related) events. See
SpreadSheet.displayChanged for a basic example.

You can then access more information about these events by
calling e.getInputEvent() to obtain the original MouseEvent,
then probing the MouseEvent to find out which keyboard
modifiers were pressed for that event.
