Following you find alternative INKEY$ function(s) made to overcome the need to use unicode fonts and respective _MAPUNICODE mappings in your programs. It mostly restores the regular INKEY$ behavior of the old SDL based QB64 versions, which natively had no problems with system codepage to Cp437 mappings.

NOTE:
Just goto the Best Answer to download forum member Moises its version, which is based on the function below, but is enhanced to support a lot more western european languages, which regulary use windows codepage 1252.

The following code is my routine made explicitly for use in Germany, Austria and other areas with regular german keyboard layouts (probably Liechtenstein and german speaking parts of Switzerland). This function is the base of all further work done by forum member Moises.
Code: QB64: [Select]
  1. '-----------------------
  2. '--- New INKEY$ test ---
  3. '-----------------------
  4.     i$ = ""
  5.     WHILE i$ = ""
  6.         _LIMIT 50
  7.         i$ = KB1031toCP437Inkey$
  8.     WEND
  9.     IF LEN(i$) = 2 THEN
  10.         PRINT "CHR$(0) +", ASC(i$, 2), RIGHT$(i$, 1)
  11.     ELSE
  12.         PRINT "-------->", ASC(i$, 1), i$
  13.     END IF
  14.     IF i$ = CHR$(27) THEN CLS
  15. LOOP UNTIL i$ = CHR$(13)

  19. '--------------------------
  20. ' This alternative INKEY$ function is made for use in Germany/Austria
  21. ' and any QB64-GL versions (>= 1.000). It will directly map the inputs
  22. ' from a german keyboard to the chars available in Cp437, hence you
  23. ' don't need to setup a custom unicode font and _MAPUNICODE table, you
  24. ' can stay with QB64's built-in fonts and standard codepage 437.
  25. ' By this means it solves the INKEY$ issues introduced with the transition
  26. ' from using SDL to using OpenGL regarding special/international chars.
  27. ' However, it does not fix the regular INPUT, LINE INPUT and INPUT$ when
  28. ' used for keyboard input, here you should create your own functions,
  29. ' which use this function to get its inputs.
  30. '----------
  31. ' SYNTAX:
  32. '   keypress$ = KB1031toCP437Inkey$
  33. '----------
  34. ' RESULT:
  35. '   --- keypress$ ---
  36. '    Equivalent to the INKEY$ result (see Wiki-Page at www.qb64.org).
  37. '----------
  38. ' ACCENTS:
  39. '   Note that the accents keys on german keyboards are so called
  40. '   preselection keys, different from modifier keys (Shift/Ctrl/Alt)
  41. '   you don't need to hold them while typing accented chars. You just
  42. '   press it once followed by pressing the letter key once to get the
  43. '   respective accented char (eg. ` + e = Š). To get the accent char
  44. '   itself you either press the space bar after the accent preselection
  45. '   or you press the accent preselection key twice.
  46. '----------
  47. ' LIMITS:
  48. '   Note that the following keys and key combos are not supported
  49. '   for various reasons:
  50. '
  51. '    Two Byte Characters        Key                 CHR$(0) + "?"
  52. '   -------------------------------------------------------------
  53. '   CHR$(0) + CHR$(16-50)      [Alt] + letter
  54. '    rarely used, not in alphabetical order, KB layout dependent,
  55. '    => returns the regular char instead (Alt modifier ignored)
  56. '   CHR$(0) + CHR$(76)         [5 NumberPad]        "L" (NumLock off in QB64)
  57. '    rarely used, almost useless for most applications,
  58. '    => returns nothing
  59. '   CHR$(0) + CHR$(120-129)    [Alt] + number
  60. '    ignored in favor for alternative Alt + ASCII code input method,
  61. '    => returns nothing, but collects numbers to built an ASCII code,
  62. '       the respective char is returned when releasing the Alt-Key
  63. '   CHR$(0) + CHR$(130 or 131) [Alt] + _/- or +/=   "‚" or "ƒ"
  64. '    rarely used, KB layout dependent,

Tank's a lot RhoSigma, i learn a lot analizing your keymaping proposal to capture keyboard inputs to CP437.
Think that's the more simple solution for consistency betwen display and keyboard.
May be the keymaping in the lines 156-167 works for most of keyboards?.
It's posible test in many keboards and refine the map table.

I converted to a most compact form in a function, tested with spanish keyboard and works fine:
Code: QB64: [Select]
  1. [font=courier]
  2. FUNCTION MapKey437 (k)
  3.   CONST KeyInp = "€ ¡¢£¥ª«¬°±²µ·º»¼½¿ÄÅÆÇÉÑÖÜßàáâäåæçèéêëìíîïñ•¢ôö÷ùúûü"
  4.   CONST KeyMap = "îÿ­›œ¦®ªøñýæú§¯¬«¨Ž’€¥™šá… ƒ„†‘‡Š‚ˆ‰¡Œ‹¤•¢“”ö—£–"
  5.   i = INSTR(KeyInp, CHR$(k))
  6.   IF i THEN
  7.     MapKey437 = ASC(KeyMap, i)
  8.   ELSE
  9.     MapKey437 = k
  10.   END IF
  11. [/font]
  12.  

And this is my complete test program:
Code: QB64: [Select]
  1. DEFLNG H-P
  2. CONST Phor = 1366, Pver = 768 ' WXGA
  3. 'CONST Phor = 1600, Pver = 900 ' HD+
  4. TITLE "Inkeyhit" 'Version 1.1

I was gonna say, circonflex, aigu, and grave as mentioned in RhoSigma's code are not German, they're French. And Š, as mentioned in his OP, is a Slavic letter.

Umlauts are single keys on german keyboards, hence one keypress for one char, so they're automatically covered by the reverse CP437 lookup. Circonflex, Aigu, Grave otherwise require two keys to be pressed one after another to generate one char, so they need the extra lookup.

I understand RhoSigma, but we need in the spanish keyboard.

Adopted most of your ideas in keyboard maping to INKEY$ coompatibility with my InkeyHit function, and think that may be valid for all western Europe keyboards. I tested in english, french and spanish, and works fine. Can you test in yours, and tell me the results?.

Re: Alternative INKEY$ for Germany/Austria
« Reply #7 on: June 09, 2020, 09:18:05 AM »
Sorry, doesn't work 100%,

direct key to char mappings (hence all chars, for which is a key for on the keyboard) work except for:
§ = shift + 3 (the regular 3, not numpad)
³ = altgr + 3 (the regular 3, not numpad)

umlauts (äöüß) work, as they have its own key (I mentioned earlier)

´ and ^ accents work only sporadicly but only once, mostly when pressing the accent key until it begins to repeat and then pressing the respective char, after that I've to type a couple other chars until it works once again
` does not work, as it needs shift pressed on DE keyboards to select this accent, which results in eg. È if you want è

F-Keys, keypad, arrows work without modifiers or shift pressed,
F11-F12 get wrong CHR$(0) double chars when used with ctrl, many alt combos get wrong or no results

All this might be, as you seem to process all _KEYHIT values, the release values maybe mess up your internal function logic, for a good reason I only use the release values for preselection (accent) keys and numbers for the Alt+ASCII input, so I can internally distinguish between multi key generated chars and single key press chars, where i use the key down values for. In general you can assume that a pressed key gets also released, so you don't need to process key down and up values for a single char.

You should also flush the INKEY$ buffer before getting the _KEYHIT, to make sure that a pressed Enter is not pending in the buffer and accidently confirms a (LINE)INPUT which comes somewhere after the Inkeyhit$ call in the program.

Re: Alternative INKEY$ for Germany/Austria
« Reply #8 on: June 09, 2020, 11:55:50 AM »
Is there a way to get this working for output into file?
When I use PRINT CHR$(132) I can see "ä" on screen, but using PRINT #5, CHR$(132) only yields ",". I only need this for Umlaute in german and I'm wondering why it does this.

EDIT: Got it working. Apparently I have to use CHR$(132) to print on screen and CHR$(228) to print into a file. Thanks for the code! <3

direct key to char mappings (hence all chars, for which is a key for on the keyboard) work except for:
§ = shift + 3 (the regular 3, not numpad)
³ = altgr + 3 (the regular 3, not numpad)

This symbols not exist in the CP437, no way to show, but may be you can susbtitute § for º = chr$(167), no suggestion for ³.

Please test this advanced function, wich takes many ideas from yours, and may be usefull.

Re: Alternative INKEY$ for Germany/Austria

Indeed, it works in german, just 2 things:

This symbols not exist in the CP437, no way to show, but may be you can susbtitute § for º = chr$(167), no suggestion for ³.

1.) You're correct on ³, sorry I've overlooked that, but the § is available on CP437 on ASCII code 21
2.) Releasing the the capital Ü (shift ü) does generate -220 for KEYHIT, hence it's the same code than circumflex prekey. After writing Ü it falsely triggers a circumflex char (if available) for the next pressed key.

If you look closely on my routine above you'll see I've done explicit workarounds  for these two exceptions in lines 93 and 141. And please really consider to flush the regular INKEY$ buffer before KEYHIT as you see it in line 76 of my routine, it's for a good reason which I mentioned in my previous reply.

I'm analizing you second question.
Also need to identify the keyboard language to solve the French-German colision. Do you know how to?

To get Keyboard type I use (in Windows)

Code: QB64: [Select]
  1.     FUNCTION GetKeyboardLayout&& (BYVAL thread&)
  2.  
  3. IF (GetKeyboardLayout&&(0) \ 65536) = &H0407 THEN deKeyboard% = -1
  4.  

see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/winuser/nf-winuser-getkeyboardlayout

as I only need the keyboard device identifier, I check the high word of the result only

download the "Published Version" PDF here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/openspecs/windows_protocols/ms-lcid/70feba9f-294e-491e-b6eb-56532684c37f

starting on page 14 of this document you'll find the required hex values to check for, hence a french keyboard should return &H040C in the high word

Tank's a lot RhoSigma, in my exploration of the windows API for language issues I have missed, but. However, it seems that Microsoft recommends using text codes, such as de-de, es-es, en-us, en-en, etc ...

Good work done,
as far as I see it right now everything works nice here with my de-de keyboard, at least with all the printable chars. However, will do a more comprehensive test comming weekend to check if especially all the double char (CHR$(0)+X) codes work as expected too. I'll let you know.

One question, would you mind me to implement your routine in the comming versions of my GuiTools Framework?
Of course it will be explicitlity mentioned, that you're the creator of this universal input routine.
Interested in my QB64 Stuff?
GuiTools Framework, Blankers, QB64/Notepad++ setup ...
Libraries (MD5/SHA2 hashing, DES56 encryption, LZW packer, File/Data buffers, Image processing, C++ stdlib wrappers and more)
