    This is Ridiculous!!!!

    For some reason or another the backspace and the delete keys don't work on the following function. But when I reassign the same function to a different key like the insert key it works perfect.

    on (release, keyPress "<Backspace>") {
    if (_root.calculator.display != "0") {
    disstr = new String(_root.calculator.display);
    if (disstr.length == 1) {
    _root.calculator.display = "0";
    } else {
    _root.calculator.display = disstr.substr(0, disstr.length-1);
    }
    }
    }

    What is up with these keys.

    Thanks

    on (release, keyPress "") {

    }

    this give me an invalid key as "" is not a legal value.

    Try...
    on (release, keyPress "< Backspace >")
    ...or...
    on (release, keyPress "< Delete > ")

    without the spaces

    When I copied it actually had "<backspace>" but for some reason that disappeared when I pasted it into my post. so it should have

    on (release, keyPress "<backspace>") {

    or

    on (release, keyPress "<delete>") {

    Freaky Flashkit removes in between if you have "< backspace >" without the spaces. Why is this?

    that's how I had it "< backspace >" and or "< delete >" without the spaces

    you could try using the key codes

    ie:
    Code:
    onEnterFrame {
        if(key.isDown(8)) {
            CODE HERE
        }
    }
    and the key code for delete is 46

    That's exactly how I have overcome it.

    But I wanted to know why it happened since in the original .fla that I modified it worked fine and then when I placed it into my .fla something happened to it and it's just the delete and backspace keys that don't work.

    All I want to know is why!

    Thanks for your help
