Receive Keyboard Buttons (vuo.keyboard.button2)

Fires an event when a key is pressed or released.

This node can be used to provide keyboard controls for a composition. The Key input port represents the key’s position on the keyboard (not the character it types in the current keyboard layout). For example, if you create a composition using a QWERTY keyboard layout and set Key to Q, and you edit or run the composition using an AZERTY keyboard layout, then Key will automatically be translated to A.

Keywords: bang, events, fire, i/o, input, interface, provider, trigger, type
