Re: Handling complex keyboard input

I did, and in fact the correct answer was in my very first reply: I don't see how that was an answer to my OP, because I said myself that I could use love.textinput to get the complex characters. I wanted to know how I can use them to handle user input / controls. Anyway I got my answers from the o...

Re: Handling complex keyboard input

Keys and characters are entirely different things. You keep conflating them. What you request is physically impossible, because you can't scan keys that do not exist. You need to decide if you want to check for keys or want to check for character input. There is no easy way to convert one into the ...

Re: Handling complex keyboard input

You should also present key codes (e.g. getKeyFromScancode) to the user rather than scancodes, generally. Scancodes are best used for internal logic. Yeah, that's what I am doing at the moment with the keys that have scancodes. If you want to assign actions/inputs to combinations of keys, you shoul...

Re: Handling complex keyboard input

love.keyboard.isDown( '!' )
will never return true and I need some way of checking wether that key is pressed. That's what this whole thread is about.

Re: Handling complex keyboard input

Attempting to translate scancodes into charcodes is madness. Don't do it. I don't want to. Use textinput if you need the character generated by that input [...] But how do I know which button combination produced that character? Or is there a way to use the produced character to check for "isDown" ...

Handling complex keyboard input

I'm looking into input handling atm. As far as I understand the best way to go is using scancodes because they aren't dependent on the user's keyboard locale. Naturally there aren't scancodes for some keys like "?" or "A". What's the best practise to handle these? I could use love.textinput to get t...
