monitoring keystates when the patcher is in the background

January 19, 2010 | 12:59 pm

Hey guys,

Do you know if there’s anyway I can monitor key states when the patcher is not the focal program? You can do this for the mouse already with ‘mousestate’, is there an equivalent for keyboard?

Many thanks,

Hugh
