  • Creating a custom hotkey [need help]

    Hello everyone i was trying to create a hotkey which is changeable by users,

    example Enter key has a function to show and hide the image. But the user can change the Enter key into other key..

    in the documentation i tried to get the value of each key using Math.Hex but no luck.
    here is my apz sample hoping someone can help, Thanks a lot.

    Here is a little example for you I moved a few things around and seems focus is buggy with key presses one thing I never seen when making my RPG what is based on simuler key press detection, the image was bugging out for me sometimes not setting invistable so I added a little timer to fix that, it's not perfect but I only just woke up and already had a fall out with a house m8, so my bad coding will be down to me blaming that lol

    Reason I helped here is you posted your working outs and what you have already tired, if I see people helping them selves is when I help if I am able or have the time.

                telco keycodes are A-Z= 65-90 and a-z=97-122
                you can do an elseif statement

                Code:
                if e_Key == 80 then
                --do something code
                elseif e_Key == 88 then
                --do something code
                elseif if e_Key == 76 then
                --do something code
                else
                --no key found
                end
                Cheers & have a Merry Xmas

                    Ya like colc, you would just check for that your key you want to use, in the DoKey function you can add more or if you want the hotkey to do something else you could just add it on the on key part it depends on what you want these other hotkeys do, if you are trying to more hidden images then you might have to create the fix for it so you would need to make sure the right timer ID and timers are triggered, but enjoy your xmas and just try and play with it as the best you can, if you get stuck come back with what you have and I sure we will help.

                        if e_Key == 13 then
                        Input.SetText(this, "Enter");
                        show = 13;
                        elseif e_Key == 8 then
                        Input.SetText(this, "Backspace");
                        show = 8;

                        elseif e_Key == 8 then
                        Input.SetText(this, "Backspace");
                        show = 8;

                        elseif e_Modifiers.ctrl == true and e_Key ~= nil then
                        Input.SetText(this, "Ctrl+"..e_Key);
                        show = 17+e_Key;
                        Page.SetFocus("");
                        else
                        show = string.byte(string.upper(Input.GetText("Input1"))) ;
                        hide = string.byte(string.upper(Input.GetText("Input2"))) ;
                        end

                          Hi Telco
                          I have inserted keycode function into globals to show how to get your keys and show as text. In apz I have only done the keyboard "F" keys to show you
                          See if you can adapt for your project
