SDL::SDLEvent(3) An input event


SDL::SDLEvent< >
= KeyDown(SDL::SDLKey key,[SDL::KeyModifier] modifiers)
| MouseMove(Int x,Int y)
| MouseButton(Int button,Int bx,Int by)


An input event - either a key being pressed, the mouse being moved to a particular location, or a mouse button being pressed while the mouse is at a particular location.

The left mouse button is usually button 1, with the right button given number 2. In theory, a sufficiently large mouse could go up to button 255.

The SDL.KeyModifier(3kaya) list allows detection of whether particular modifier keys are pressed, allowing combinations such as 'Ctrl-Numpad7' to be detected.
