Do you have what is called a "game loop" in place already?

And the real questions is really how to get keyboard input, right? Cos if youre putting an object on the screen then it al;ready has X/Y coordinates set, all you need to do is change them depending on the keyboard input.

Youre basically asking me how to surf, but you dont know how to walk yet ;-)

In future you really should google things like this, because it really annoys the hell out of people when you dont try to help yourself at all. Its one thing asking someone to explain something to you that you dont understand, and another when you wont do it unless someone else puts it under your nose...

A quick google for me this (CLICK)
