TextEntered vs. KeyPressed
« on: March 15, 2011, 02:28:25 am »
I have a text box, when players enter text it will display.   I am having issues though as it seems that one key pressed will generate TWO events.

How can I determine which event I should listen to, and when.

Secondly, how can I flag the other events so it can be ignored further down the widget tree.

For further reference. TextEvent is to handle typing much easier. It will handle the modifiers on the keys for you. Like shift and so. So a text event will give you a already formatted character when received.

At least that's my impression.

It also allows unicode characters which might not be supported by KeyPressed
