This throws an exception: *** -[NSCFString characterAtIndex:]:
Range or index out of bounds
Why? What's wrong with this code? How can I send an event for
I guess AppKit isn't prepared to get an empty string for the
characters: parameter? Why do you need to do this anyway? What is
Option-E? On my keyboard, that's the Euro-sign, so you'd neither
want to use this as a keyboard shortcut, not would you want to use
a fake event to generate the character (Because it may be different
depending on the keyboard, and NSEvent won't auto-fill the
characters: param, which can cause application code to detect this
as the wrong key...).
What are you trying to do?
This isn't intended to be shipping code, just a test of a general
approach. On a US keyboard, Option-E is the beginning of a multi-
keystroke char, like "é". If you override keyDown: in an NSView
subclass and type Option-E on a US keyboard, the event that you
receive has these exact parameters, including the empty string for
the characters: parameter. At this point I'm trying to understand how
the system could generate and send this NSEvent, but I can't. _______________________________________________
