I appreciate the help. I tried it out and it works. I have one problem
though. I created a method called "gdkDKeyDown" (gdk is my innitials so I
put it before my methods) and when I type gdkDKeyDown in a workspace and
print it it says nil (it's supposed to say true or false) how do I make it
return a value?
This is the method:
| x |
x := Sensor keyboardPeek asciiValue.
x == 99
ifTrue: [^ true].
