I overloaded the Timer class in my dialog to be triggered every 2000 ms. Is it possible to get a mouse or keyboard event from within the overloaded Timer class? I want to be able to read a key or a mouse down event. But it only seems to be possible inside a user area. Isn't it possible to read the keyboard or mouse from anywhere else?

Is it possible at all?

Unfortunatly there is no global GetInputState() function in COFFEE. So I don't think this is possible.

Mmmmm, thank you, Matthias.
Do you know when will COFFEE get an update? Like adding a global GetInputState() function and being able to create Tracks and Keyframes?

Wasn't there an update called C++? (dives to ground, crawls to nearest cover, and waits for barrage). ;)

C++ may be nice but not as fast for debugging. In COFFEE I type my code, run Cinema4D and test it really fast. With C++ I have to wait for compilation, linking, etc...
Honestly, COFFEE suits much more my programming style (I'm not a true programmer).

Hehe, I think you should use whatever suits you.
But, it would be cool, though if there was a COFFEE API, so that you could use C++ to add custom functions to COFFEE. Then you could do a lot of those things in COFFEE that you can now only do in C++. One of the main reasons I moved to C++ was because of the limitations of COFFEE. ;o)

Actually you can extend COFFEE through the C++ COFFEE library. There is a chapter about it in the C++ docu.

Well, now that is cool!
I never noticed that library before.
