Keyboard input

Flash Player 9 and later, Adobe AIR 1.0 and later

Your application can capture and respond to keyboard input and can manipulate an IME to let users type non-ASCII text characters in multibyte languages. Note that this section assumes that you are already familiar with the ActionScript 3.0 event model. For more information, see Handling events .

For information on discovering what kind of keyboard support is available (such as physical, virtual, alphanumeric, or 12-button numeric) during runtime, see Discovering input types .

An Input Method Editor (IME) allows users to type complex characters and symbols using a standard keyboard. You can use the IME classes to enable users to take advantage of their system IME in your applications.
