Maybe you could use the keysDown function.
This RR function returns the ascii form of the keys pressed while a handler
is being executed.
For example this mouseUp handler add 1 to the fld msg until the key "s" is
*put* 0 into fld "Msg"
*repeat* until charToNum("s") is in the keysDown
-- the charToNum function is necessary to compare the key with the content
returned by the keysDown function. The keysDown function returns a list of
keys in ascii form separated by commas.
*add* 1 to fld "Msg"
*wait* 30 ticks
Hope this helps.
