Okay, so this one is probably fairly simple, and hopefully it's just me not using RawInput for the keyboard correctly (incidentally, it's working just fine for the mouse).


This is my code:

        public override void Initialize()
            Device.RegisterDevice(UsagePage.Generic, UsageId.Keyboard, DeviceFlags.None);
            Device.RegisterDevice(UsagePage.Generic, UsageId.Mouse, DeviceFlags.None);

            SlimDX.RawInput.Device.KeyboardInput += Device_KeyboardInput;
            SlimDX.RawInput.Device.MouseInput += Device_MouseInput;

        private void Device_KeyboardInput(object sender, KeyboardInputEventArgs e)
            keyStateChanged = true;
            if (e.State != KeyState.Pressed)

I put a break point inside the if statement for the KeyState.  It never gets called.  I can press buttons all I like, but I will only ever get KeyState.Pressed.  It never tells me when a key is released.  I need that information.


Any ideas?
