[REBOL] key events... hacking...
From: maximo::meteorstudios::com at: 20-Jan-2004 18:23
Is anyone capable of getting keyboard events for faces which are not "focused", short
of rewriting the whole event handler?
I need to handle shortcuts in a multi-level ui system. The problem right now is that
if I focus a face, then the caret appears and its looks mimic a text field!
I'd just want a way to get keyboard events at their source and if they coincide with
a specific current setup or context, then an action is called...
does the key style allow me to do just that, and if so, do any one of you have simple
useage examples... its been a while since I've been in keyboard hassles dept.
thanks in advance!
AND A BIG THAKS TO EVERYONE WHO SHARED A SECRET OR TWO ABOUT VID ACCELERATION. I am
sure many novices and a few veterans learned at least one or two tricks. Thats what
I wanted, to get that kind of info shared in one continous stream.
now may be gerard or cybarite will compile that somewhere ;-)
as if we don't all have enough to do already.
You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution, but in the end, being
part of the problem is much more fun.
