or do you have to use [hidin]?
is this still an issue?
on osx hid detects keypresses even if puredata is not in focus
i would like to know if on windows either allow keys press to be detected while another program is in focus.
and in the case that only hidin works would like to know if it detects keys the same way and outputs the same type of data
hid/keyboard outputs key code: [key_”number”) as a symbol.
and a value: float which is a 0 or 1 representing key press.
those values can then be unpacked symbol float.
this is the help file.
