no KeyPress for Visualizer? (revised)

Postby Mic » Fri Nov 04, 2011 9:05 pm

ah - have to click on Visualizer to make it top window - now works ..... but

<KeyPress Keys="A">
<OnPressed>
<ZExpression>
<Expression>
<![CDATA[//
debugReset = debugReset + 1;]]>
</Expression>
</ZExpression>
</OnPressed>
</KeyPress>


debugReset increments by 3 or 4 for every keypress because OnUpdate runs multiple times while I am trying to press key as quickly as possible :-) .... how do you get around this? Thanks


..... OK :-)

RepeatDelay

A delay in seconds for which a keypress is repeated.

.... saw this but was not sure what it meant ..... set it to 2 secs and everything wonderful!

Hi mic,

Keyboard input works just fine ( apart from the arrow keys and a couple others ) .. just like mouse, joystick and MIDI input.

Unfortunately not no. Would have been great if you could add bool / text / bitmap etc. fields to a preset .. instead of floats only.

Mic wrote:Does it make any sense if KeyPress does not work, to type instructions into a file and have ZGE read that file at intervals and parse the instructions?

Sure, you can read / write files from a preset if you want ;)
