Using 9.0 dp11 community. After sending the post, I found in the
dictionary that for windows, commandkeydown message. After
changing my script from controlkeydown to commandkeydown, it
worked. Sort of.
My next problem is that on the LC/osx I use:
if pkeyname is "j" then set the playrate of player videoplayer
if pkeyname is "k" then set the playrate of player videoplayer
if pkeyname is "l" then set the playrate of player videoplayer
to start, stop or reverse the player from the keyboard. This
worked great in LC/osx, but is not working in win7/LC.
I changed the lines to
if pkeyname is "k" then stop player videoplayer
if pkeyname is "l" then start player videoplayer
and that works in win7/lc. But can't figure out how to send a
play in reverse command from the keyboard yet.
