      Capturing ESC Key

      Post

           Is there any way Filemaker 9 Pro can "capture" the user pressing the ESC key and perform some action other than the standard.

           Ideally I'd like to be able to make the ESC key trigger a script.

           Any suggestions?

           Thanks

               This is possible in FileMaker 10 and later using a "script trigger", but not in FileMaker 9. You'd need to either upgrade or find a third party plug in that adds this capability. (I know that script triggers were available via plug ins long before they were standard features in FileMaker, but don't know if they are still available nor if they detected keystrokes or not.
