    capturing Alt key

    fedster72

      I know there have been similar threads in the past but I can't seem to find a decent definitive answer / workaround for the problem I'm facing.

       

      What I'm trying to do:

      capture ALT+SHIFT+something keyboard events. Pretty straightforward, right?

       

      Issue:

      When pressing ALT+SHIFT doesn't seem to ever shoot an event. The only combination that seems to work with ALT is CTRL+ALT+something, as pointed out here.

       

      Question:

      really? I've read that the browser catches some of the keyboard events, but this happens with the basic flash player too - maybe that catches events too? Would love to know if there is a solution that doesn't involve messing with JS.

       

      thank you!
