Could somebody point out to me how to
listen to release key event in GLUT.
I thought it was possible in 3.7, but can;t find it.

Thanks a lot

glutKeyboardUpFunc(). Works just like glutKeyboardFunc(). It's in the header but wasn't documented anywhere last time I looked.

Isn't this in the FAQ? It should be, it's come up on this board several times before.

you may also use it for the special keys with:

void glutSpecialUpFunc(void (*func)(int key,int x, int y));

furthermore you may want to ignore key repeats, in GLUT there are these two functions:

int glutSetKeyRepeat(int repeatMode);
int glutIgnoreKeyRepeat(int repeatMode);

My glut tutorial has a section that deals with this, http://www.fatech.com/tech/opengl/glut/index.php3?7

Source code is also provided.
