Description

SoKeyboardEvent represents keyboard key press and release events in the Inventor event model.

Methods

SoKeyboardEvent()
Constructor.

static SoType getClassTypeId()
Return the type id for the SoKeyboardEvent class.

void setKey(SoKeyboardEvent::Key whichKey)

SoKeyboardEvent::Key getKey() const
Set and get which key generated the event.

static SbBool isKeyPressEvent(const SoEvent *e, SoKeyboardEvent::Key whichKey)

static SbBool isKeyReleaseEvent(const SoEvent *e, SoKeyboardEvent::Key whichKey)
Returns whether the passed event is a keyboard press or release event of the passed key. When SoKeyboardEvent::ANY is passed, this returns TRUE if the event represents a keyboard press or release of any key.

char getPrintableCharacter() const
Convenience routine that returns the character representing the key, if it's printable. If not, this returns NULL ('\0').
