    Question useing the 'function'(F1, F2.. F12 you know) keys..

    How do you check if one of the Function keys have been pressed? Do they produce a character so I can use scanf or some other function to get it into a char variable to see if it's been pressed?

    THX alot!

    I assume since you are using scanf, you mean in a dos program. You have to use windows.h, but you can test to see if this function returns true, and if it does the key is pressed. It is:

    GetKeyState(VK_F1);

    It doesn't make a character to scanf so you will have to test the key instead. I hope it works in dos.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
