DirectX (DirectInput) and local keyboard

Recommended Posts

I would like to let the user enter characters in the FMC through the keyboard. I know how to scan the keyboard using DirectInput, but I don't know how to know to what key a keystroke corresponds.For example, on a US keyboard, if I read the keystroke DIK_Q, I know the Q key has been depressed. But if the user has a French keyboard, the DIK_Q keystroke corresponds to the A key (French keyboard layout is AZERTY instead of QWERTY in the US).If you know how to make the matching, please let me know...Thanks.Eric

DirectInput is the part of DirectX that manages the input devices: keyboard, mouse, joystick and other control devices...EricPS. No question is out of interest ;-)

Download the DX9 SDK from Microsoft, it contains a very good electronic documentation (CHM format).Eric
