Pause Break button in Phaser.Keyboard


Recommended Posts

Where is the pause/break button in Phaser.Keyboard? I'm talking about the button to the left of the num pad which literally says "Pause / Break." I know it's not on mac keyboards but should be on all windows keyboards. I'm looking for Phaser.Keyboard.Pause, or something, but it's not there.

I realize most laptops wouldn't have a pause button. Most laptops wouldn't have a num pad either, but that doesn't make it redundant. 

Most keyboards designed for windows have a pause / break button. And most people use windows. 

That said, I couldn't really find anything about accessing hey handlers even with plain JS/jQuery. I guess the key really is more obscure and scarcely used than I thought. 

Seems to me though, with PC gaming being what it is, it'd get more attention. I can't imagine a gaming keyboard not having one for instance.  

I don't mean to blow things out of proportion but what's wrong with the world today!?!

I'm afraid "19", or any number for that matter, isn't in Phaser.Keyboard. 

That just isn't true. Apart from the alphanumeric keys, the rest are defined by using their keyCode.

Pause/Break (keyCode 19) however indeed isn't mapped. I'd suggest you submit a bug in github.

But drhayes isn't wrong, you should be able to register an event handler for keycode 19 like so:

var pauseBreakHandler = game.input.keyboard.addKey(19);
pauseBreakHandler.onDown.add(function () {
    //do something
}, this);
