Code 66 and 3TAG AB have created a Mac OS X plug-in for REALbasic that contains two controls and one global methods pack.
The HotKey control can register a GlobalHotKey combination. When that HotKey combination is pressed, the controls EventHandler will be called. The KeyCode control allows for tapping the virtual keycodes for keys pressed, which is useful for configuring GlobalHotKeys.
The “Global methods” include PostKeyEvent methods that let REALbasic applications post keydown and keyup events to the system. They’ll be received by the frontmost application.
The plug-ins are available
in a demo version and a “real” version. The latter is US$8 for “hobby” developers and $25 for pro developers and high volume shareware developers.
