I am trying to create an experiment that involves participants entering free text. I have successfully utilized the code from this example: https://gitlab.pavlovia.org/demos/textinput
However one small issue remains: When participants enter a period or a comma, those words “period” “comma” are printed to screen instead of the symbols. This also happens when CTRL or ALT are pressed. Does anyone see a simple solution to avoid this from happening? I would be willing to block out the use of those keys if necessary.
Below is the code for Begin Routine:
modify = False text.text = '' event.clearEvents('keyboard')
… and for Each Frame:
keys = event.getKeys() if len(keys): if 'space' in keys: text.text = text.text + ' ' elif 'backspace' in keys: text.text = text.text[:-1] elif 'lshift' in keys or 'rshift' in keys: modify = True elif 'return' in keys: continueRoutine = False else: if modify: text.text = text.text + keys.upper() modify = False else: text.text = text.text + keys
