Sensor shiftPressed

Eliot Miranda-2
Hi All,

    Sensor shiftPressed no longer functions.  Is there a replacement?  If so, what is it, and can we mark shiftPressed as deprecated?  If not, can it be fixed?  It's the escape key in the debugger's runUntil, and useful for turning off display update when things are running for a very long time.

At least for Scratch not-quite-events, ‘self currentHand lastEvent’ works to get  the most recent event. I use it in ScratchFrameMorph>buildShareMenu: for example -
‘self currentHand lastEvent shiftPressed ifTrue:[
        aDockingBarMenuMorph addLine’….

There’s also the option of just sucking in my KeyboardStateWatcher that listens to incoming events and tracks the currently pressed keys etc.

No? Which platform / vm?

This works for me:

(UpdatingStringMorph on: Sensor selector: #shiftPressed) openInHand

... albeit on the Mac you have to wiggle the mouse too because the Cocoa VM does not send keyboard events for shift.
 
can it be fixed?
 
I'm sure the VM can be fixed ;)

Ah!  So that's the problem :-/.  Thanks!
