when a cursor key is pressed, WM_KEYDOWN is received, and when it is released, WM_KEYUP is received. How can I get this same functionality with a character key?

I found the messages WM_CHAR and WM_DEADCHAR, but they dont work like the above messages. Can anyone help?

Thanks, Nick

actually, you know what? KEYUP and KEYDOWN DO catch letters, but it is registering 'w' && 'W' both as 'W'...only capital...anyone know why that is? or if I can change it?

It's down to you to check the state of the shift key and caps locks. So i suggest you do that :P


lol...okay, thanks =)
