I have fields that have hotkeys in them, one of which closes a group of
fields.  If a change is made in one, and the hotkey used to close, that
change doesn't get processed.

I suppose I could set my flag repeatedly whenever a key is pressed, but
this seems processor intensive.

Is there any way inside the keyUp handler to test whether the contents have

Or is this just a hangover from my 8 bit days with BASIC interpreters?
