Emptying the Key Buffer

Post by mothdragon »

How do I go about emptying the Key Buffer so that the same key press isn't reacted to by two different things?

Hi Charlie,

It is not really a buffer, but returning a value of 'false' from either OnKeyHit or OnKeyDown will prevent further windows or events to be invoked. This should be done inside the appropriate case statement of the switch(key) so as not to block 'all' keys.
Note that OnKeyDown is invoked first, so that returning false from OnKeyDown will result in OnKeyHit for that same window to not be called.
