Send me your e-mail. I think I can make a file that points out this technic.

To use the arrow keys U use the INKEY\$ command

as usual, like this:

x\$ = inkey\$

if x\$ """ then

if x\$ = "a" then do something!

if x\$ = chr\$(0) + "H" then UP

if x\$ = chr\$(0) + "P" then DOWN

if x\$ = chr\$(0) + "K" then LEFT

if x\$ = chr\$(0) + "M" then RIGHT

end if

got it? U use the CHR\$(0) in front.

To see the codes for other keys use this:

'Start

do

x\$ = inkey\$

if x\$ "" then

locate 1,1

print x\$

end if

loop while x\$ chr\$(27) 'Pressed ESC.

'End code.

When U press the UP key U will see a blank char

followed by an "H", and so on.
