Function Key Resources

Function key resources (of the 'FKEY' resource type) are Command-Shift-number key combinations that are captured and processed by the WaitNextEvent function. The screen utility resource (a function key resource with resource ID 3) produces a picture of the main screen, contained in a 'PICT' file, when the user presses Command-Shift-3. The 'FKEY' resource IDs 0 through 4 are reserved for future use by Apple Computer, Inc. The WaitNextEvent function is described in the chapter "Event Manager" in Inside Macintosh: Macintosh Toolbox Essentials.
