Text Input Problem

Recommended Posts

How can I get the actual characters when some one types, e.g. while someone is typing in their nick when he wants to connect to a multiplayer game. We''re using DirectInput for keyboard inputs but I''m not sure if DirectInput can actually return the characters. Plz Help, THX --------------- Gaming is Life ---------------

hi,

You can capture, for text input, the WM_CHAR message within your Winproc function of your window, and route the extracted char to your GUI or wherever you need the input.
