Re: confused about arrow key syms

KP_Up would be 8.
KP_PgUp would be 9.

Actually, I think what Skip was asking about was what KP_Up meant. 
I don't know from a GTK point of view, but from what I know of laptops, it
would be the Page Up that you get on your numeric pad.  Most laptops do
have a numeric pad, but you have to hit like three keys :-) to turn it on
and doing so, usually turns on some light first.  On a full keyboard, the
other Page Up/Page Down on the keypad is "9"  and "3" respectively with
numlock off.  The normal ones would be the grey keys between the numeric
pad and your keyboard.


PS:  The numeric pad on a laptop is usually under your right hand
somewhere...with "4" being the J key and "5" being K, and so forth.  If
you don't have numbers marked on them, you might not have them...
