Topic: Can sw shift get stuck?
locodogPRO InfinityMember since 2013
*edit, never mind I've noticed on break points it does get stuck, perhaps I hadn't cleared the stuck sw shift when pressing buttons again*

I've got an odd one here,

I've got a plugin with 16 buttons, and for testing I made a pad page
I'm chasing a bug related to a button [9] mapped to a shift pad, [shift 1]
I'm using my keyboard shift key and mouse to call shift pad 1
So I put some break points on to button 9 and sometimes [not every time] my break points are called when I press pad 1 with the mouse.

Does this sound possible? or should I look deeper at my shoddy programming?

Several keys can get stuck if pressed five times within a few seconds. Its a feature designed to help ppl with physical disabilities etc, and its called StickyKeys. Its a part of the accessibility features or Ease of Access. Its not very common for it to be enabled by default on the last generations of operating systems, but for the last 10 years it has pissed millions of ppl off. Often one would get a dialog box popping up.... and not always at a good time.

Its one of those brilliant ideas ... make everybody get a cast and some braces... just in case. We can always get rid of them if it turns out our legs and teeth are just fine.
