Can you use F1, F2 etc as keys? How?


#1

Is it possible to use F1, F2 etc as keys for the keyboard response? How might I do this?

Thanks :slight_smile:


#2

But function keys seem to be a little bit “special”, varying across platform and even from one model of computer or keyboard to another as to whether any particular key generates normal keyboard events or triggers some special function, with or without the “fn” key also being pressed, so your mileage may vary.

Great stuff - thank you!

Ok, unless there’s some special trick, it looks like F1 etc aren’t going to be a winner then, according to the demo at least… useful to know about the demo though (I should have thought to look, sorry). Thanks!
