monitoring keystates when the patcher is in the background

Jan 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,
