The $keychar identifier is filled during an ON KEYDOWN, or an ON KEYUP event inside of a custom @window.






Create an alias that launches a custom, picture window which listens for key presses and displays the key value pressed, the key character pressed, and if it is repeating:

alias keyDownTest {
  window -p $+ $iif($window(@myWindow),ra) @myWindow 550 300 250 105
ON *:KEYDOWN:@myWindow:*: {
  clear @myWindow
  drawtext @myWindow 1 3 3 Key value: $iif($keyval,$v1,NA)
  drawtext @myWindow 1 3 25 Key character: $iif($keychar,$v1,NA)
  drawtext @myWindow 1 3 47 @myWindow Repeating: $keyrpt

The following command can now be typed into any mIRC command prompt:


Below is an image reflecting what this example will look like:

This screenshot shows an example of the ON KEYDOWN event custom example.

Note that this makes use of a picture window, as well as the drawtext command. These types of windows and their tools can be very powerful in creating some amazing graphical layouts, as well as mIRC games.
