Subject Re: Handling of simultaneous key-down and mouse-button events
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2018 18:57:37 GMT
Hi Mike,

found a perfect way to get what I want from Guacamole and just wanted
to share what I did in case anyone runs into a similar issue.

In guacamole-common-js/src/main/webapp/modules/Keyboard.js 

there's a list (no_repeat) of keys for which the key-down event is not
repeatedly send to the server if a user presses the key and and holds
it down. I just added the spacebar key to this list and rebuild the
webapp. While the application on the remote side is now working as
expected, the drawback is that something like a text box of a remote
application also won't get multiple key-down events if the user holds
down the space-bar, i.e., if someone wants to type multiple spaces in
such a window he/she needs to press the spacebar for each space he/she
wnats to type on the remote side. For me that's perfectly fine. :-)
Thanks for your help, Mike!
