Bluetooth support for controllers and/or keyboard input

I know with "keyboard (key)" and "showKeyboard" that you can get it's input but only for letters and numbers and unfortunately it doesn't detect the arrow keys nor when a key state is being held or ended. If possible please add this functionality into Codea

    @NewToonie It sounds like you want to use the keyboard as a game controller. You want to use the arrow keys for direction and to hold a key down for some kind of action like continuous shooting.

    Though I know Codea is more for touch based projects but would still be cool to be able to to use the keyboard that way

    @NewToonie the arrow keys weren't possible when we initially added keyboard support. I'll look into it again to see if it's possible to support these on iOS now.

  • +1 for at least the arrow keys ! (For text edition into an app)
    Could be interesting to have a complete support : control, alt, ...
