Really. Did you read the sample code dunbarx posted? And if you read it, did you understand it? Please, inform me which rawKeyDown events a "do rawKeyDown" handler *will not* trap. As well, do clue me in to which rawKeyDown events will slip thru a "on rawKeyDown" handle which *does not* have a "pass rawKeyDown" statement in it.

Of course. But it *wasn't explicitly written out*. And I was responding to *the sample code that was actually written*, as opposed to… say… making unsupported assumptions about *other* code that *could* have been written. Personally, I find that dealing with the code that's *actually there* tends to yield better results than dealing with code that I only *wish* was there. Your mileage may vary.

Is the problem that I didn't comprehend dunbarx's sample code… or is the problem that *you* hallucinated a statement or three which were not actually present in said sample code? Yes, "hallucinated" is not a particularly congenial word in this context, but it's no more offensive than your "logically totally wrong" phrase. As the saying goes, "you don't start none, there won't be none."
