Automatic key repeat
« on: February 04, 2008, 07:57:03 pm »
Hi,

I would like to request a method off of sf::Window that provides the user the ability to enable or disable automatic key repeat. When a key is held down, the user constantly receives KeyPressed messages. I would like an option to disable the automatic generation of these messages.

For now I have to have an external array of booleans representing which key is already held down, and ignore the message if that key is held down. This isn't an ideal solution, as I believe SFML could (and should) handle this better.

From a design standpoint having such an option would be more efficient as well, since the messages wouldn't need to travel as far before being ignored.

Thanks!

Laurent

What about setting up a delay and interval like at http://www.libsdl.org/cgi/docwiki.cgi/SDL_EnableKeyRepeat ?

SFML lets the OS handle the delay and interval, so this is perfectly consistent with the user's configuration.
