Yes, something like that. I'm intercepting an event before it reaches a function that normally gets it so I can do some stuff first based on whatever the event is. I then pass it on to that function, or not if because of the event it doesn't need to be called. But that's the only choice I have - either send the event as is, or not send it. In some cases I'd like to be able to modify the key value in event and send that on, but it seems there's no way to do this. There's a convoluted way I can get around this, but it'd be so much simplier to just do something like... event/key: #"Z" event-function face event action It's not a show-stopper though... -- Carl Read
