  • Nick Symmonds


This chapter deals with entering in data using the keyboard and the mouse. Yes I know, you’re probably thinking, “Haven’t I been typing on the keyboard all along?” Yup, however, you should be aware of the following issues:

  • Which key event should you trap?

  • When should you evaluate the key?

  • When should you use hot keys?

  • When should you use shortcut keys?
