Can someone help my science class by making a program to display the keyboard keys ?  Example:  press the key for an eight (8) and it displays an 11 this can then be used with onkey command.  The kids want to control motors in qbasic by pressing the keys on the key board.

RE: Help

check out something called 'inkey' or '$inkey' don't remember which it's called

RE: Help

Check the help for on key though personally I prefer
doing it myself -- something like

while char$<>chr$(27)
 while a$="":a$=inkey$:wend
 select case asc(left$(a$,1))
   case 0 'control keys (up/down insert,etc)
   case 8 'backspace
   case 13 'CR
   case 27 'esc
   case else
     if len(a$)=1 then
     end if
 end select
