I am using VTK 5.4.2 embedded in Python + wxWidgets
I am trying to capture a key that does not modify the left click
action by default.
I use vtkRenderWindowInteractor and its methods:
a = self.iren.GetAltKey()
c = self.iren.GetControlKey()
s = self.iren.GetShiftKey()
kc = self.iren.GetKeyCode()
ks = self.iren.GetKeySym()
ALT is never reported, I think that because, at least in Windows, it
triggers a menu event (selects the first menu in the menubar).
the KeyCode is always '\x00'
the KeySym is always None
looking at the code of
vtkRenderWindowInteractor::SetEventInformation(), I see that AltKey is
So, is there any other key that I can use to do in my code a custom
action when pressing left mouse button?
