keyboard_check_released


Description

With this function you can check to see if a key has been released or not. Unlike the keyboard_check function, this function will only run once for every time the key is lifted, so for it to trigger again, the key must be first pressed and then released again. The function will take a keycode value as returned by the function ord() (only capital letters from A-Z or numbers from 0-9), or any of the vk_* constants listed on the main Keyboard Input page.


Syntax:

keyboard_check_released(key);

Argument Description
key The key to check the released state of.


Returns:

Boolean


Example:

if keyboard_check_released(ord("P"))
   {
   instance_create_layer(0, 0, "Controllers", obj_Pause);
   }

The above code will check to see if the "P" key has been released and if so, create an instance of "obj_Pause".
