The Keyboard class is used to build an interface that can be controlled by a user with a standard keyboard. You can use the methods and properties of the Keyboard class without using a constructor. The properties of the Keyboard class are constants representing the keys that are most commonly used to control games.

Static methods

staticisAccessible ():Bool

Specifies whether the last key pressed is accessible by other SWF files. By default, security restrictions prevent code from a SWF file in one domain from accessing a keystroke generated from a SWF file in another domain.

Returns:

The value true if the last key pressed can be accessed. If access is not permitted, this method returns false.
