Detecting keyboard events

Detecting keyboard events

Hello!


I use Epic 5.1 and Arbortext Editor 5.2. I use Java and ACL in order to create my plugin (most of it is written in Java).


I need to detect that the cursor is out of some range when the keys are pressed. So, I need to write a callback within my *.acl file or in Java. I've made a mouse click handler, but the cursor can be moved via keyboard too.


Please, give me some piece of advice.

Hi Ilya--



You might be able to handle this using the ACL context_changed document
callback. This callback detects changes in caret location, whether due
to mouse clicks or keypresses. Look up doc_add_callback() in the
Arbortext Help Center for details about this callback.
