Read again. Got it now. What you effectively want is the (current) foreign keyMapping. This is done by the OS, not gettable by LiveCode AFAIK. Apple even doesn't has a file to check, Linux and Win have. Look what they do: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Keyboard_configuration_in_console

Well . . . That puts "q" into both fields with a US English keyboard layout . . . & ит АЛСО (whoops) it ALSO puts "q" into both fields with a Bulgarian keyboard layout. So "NBG" I'm afraid. Thanks for the suggestion :-) Richmond. P.S. Had to change 'N' to 'M'. On 28/2/2018 11:19 am, hh

If I understand correctly what you have in mind then you could try the following. Clicking the button will place one copy of numToCodepoint(M) into both fld 1 and fld 2. Type into the fields as usual, especially you can delete. Typing outside the fields ("blind") will put one copy of space into

If you add rawkeydown handlers to your field, and then use the "type" command to type into them, you'll trap the key code being sent (which will always be the same for q no matter the keyboard) but there is then no relationship to the actual key on the keyboard that I can see. As for your 2 field

That looks like a good way to start (even though it is the wrong way round). The next questions (now I'm on a roll, I'll keep rolling) are these: 1. How do I type a rawKey command? I probably cannot. 2. If I have a script that runs type "q" how do I trap therawKeyDown and the rawKeyUp codes

See the dictionary entry for the "type" command. This sends rawKeyUp|rawKeyDown messages This might let you construct a stack that "calibrates" (or whatever you want to call it) what keys on any keyboard generate what keyDown number and what characters On 2/25/2018 5:09 AM, Richmond Mathewson
