This tutorial shows you how to detect if a numpad key is down in Scratch 1.4.


The When () Key Pressed block fires either when a number key is pressed using the writing row or the numeric pad. The Key () Pressed? block with the numbers 0-9 selected, however, only reports true if the number in the writing row is down.

Add this script:

when [1 v] key pressed
if <key [1 v] pressed?>
set [type of number v] to [writing field "1"]
set [type of number v] to [numeric field "1"]

You now have a script that will detect if the "1" numeric key is pressed.

play note (40 v) for (0.5) beats play note (40 v) for (0.5) beats
