General discussions / Event.Key.Code to correct ASCI CODE

But the SFML key codes don't have to follow any standard (or I could use EBCDIC just to bother you), so just do the conversion on your side using a big switch or a table. Plus, it will be more robust on your side the day I decide to add a new code in the middle of the enumeration.

I don't see what's the problem with this.

If you want to get real characters from the input, rather use sf::Event::TextEntered which is done exactly for that and will give you UTF-16 standard.

I was VERY unimpressed with that statement.  If you are the dev of SFML you should know that there are extraneous situations that may call for such a function.  Not only that, but implementing such functionality should be (by any standard) the libraries job.

I hire programmers left and right.  One of the biggest things I look for in a programmer is the ability to recognize possible situations where certain functionality may be required and to implement it beforehand.

If you where applying for a job at my company I would not hire you because you failed that criteria.  Miserably.
