Detect when just Shift key is down


#1

Hi,

in my desktop application I need to detect whenever the shift key is held down and whenever it is released (just Shift key, not in combination with other keys). I know it is not possible to handle this in the "KeyPressed()" function as Shift is a modifier and does not trigger key press event. I think the only way to catch this is in "keyStateChanged()" function. Does anybody know how this can be done?

 

Thanks for your helps

Maybe use Component::modifierKeysChanged()?

Yes, that solved the problem. I didn't know such a function exists. Thank you very much.
