Direct Input "grave" key question

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a problem reading the "accent grave" key, on some UK keyboard, under Windows Vista. (I think it works in XP). It just not reports when pressed. I use DirectInput and the key's DIK code. DIK_GRAVE 0x29 /* accent grave */ On my US layout keyboard this key is top-left, under the Escape key. And it also has ~ symbol (using shift). I understand this ~ symbol is on another key on the UK keyboard. Anyway the 0x29 code does not read neither for ` nor for ~ keys on the UK keyboard under Vista, on two computers. Any idea, except providing an additional key for my in-game console? Thanks!

Drop direct input for mouse or keyboard and insread use keydown/up or wm_input messages.
