Bug of the week

Bug 17275 - altKey combo code not working with rawKeyDown using scanners

  • The simple and effective example stack clearly demonstrates the problem.
  • Excellent support/responsiveness from the reporter, who sent us all the required elements (even hardware from the USA!) to test for this bug
  • Although the bug affected only an edge case, the excellent engagement from the reporter encouraged the development team to implement a fix much sooner than originally planned!

Help needed!
