Re: [XaraXtreme-dev] Text insertion bug


That could well be related, since currently the code uses dummy codes
(see texttool.cpp:1072)

The thread is pasted below

 This is why we (unfortunately) have GetKeyCode() and GetUnicodeKey().

 This is not a problem if you use GetUnicodeKey().


I don't see why it is not a problem. What is GetUnicodeKey supposed to
return when the user types a WXK_ key such as an arrow? Not a WXK_ code
as this would be a unicode char. I've looked in 2.6.3 docs for all refs
to GetUnicodeChar, the point is not mentioned.

You need to check both. If GetKeyCode returns a value >= WXK_START then it is a function or other special key. If not then you can then use GetUnicodeKey to get the actual character value that should be used.
