Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-02-16 15:30:22 UTC
They all result in the keybinding "16".
Comment 1 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-02-16 16:21:37 UTC
GdkEventKey for all function keys (fn-f1, fn-f2 etc) has the keyval 16777232 and state 0. Hardware keycode differs.
Comment 2 Michael Natterer 2012-02-16 16:58:53 UTC
Is this new, after using the new GTK+, or did this always happen?
Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-02-16 17:04:35 UTC
This is using the new GTK+. It used to work.

    quartz: remove excess initializers in the new modifier_keys array

    quartz: make function keys work (again?)
    The F keys have no unicode mapping, and UCKeyTranslate() returns
    a bogus 0x10 as mapping to unicode. Instead of checking for this
    random and undocumented return value, simply assign all function
    keys explicitly. This patch also splits the ill-named "known_keys"
    array into "modifier_keys" and "function_keys" which is much
    more obvious.

confirmed this fixes mac function keys

Duncan: I've added the patch for this to bockbuild:

commit 18e4d85699fb3b0ba81dc3a298efee7624298d4c

Can you pull this patch into our Mono 2.10.9 build?
