Strange behavior with accent shortcuts on UK keyboard

Kwan, Supun 1 Reputation point

Hi, I found this strange behavior of accent shortcuts on UK keyboard as for some users, Windows is interpreting ie. Ctrl + Alt + Shift + O as Shift + Ó and I haven't found a dependency.

Here is the link for testing.

Steps to test

  1. click Console (beta) at the bottom right.
  2. click anywhere inside white box
  3. you should be able to see messages print out in the box underneath whenever you pressed button.

If you pressed the combinations, Ctrl + Alt + Shift + O and Ctrl + Alt + O, it should print specific messages of what keys are being pressed.

I've put 4 different cases.

  1. Found: Ctrl + Alt + Shift + Ó
  2. Found: Ctrl + Alt + ó
  3. Found: Shift + Ó
  4. Found: ó

For those people who having the issue, they cannot reach Case 1 and 2 as whenever they pressed the combination ( Ctrl + Alt + Shift + O & Ctrl + Alt + O ).
It either goes to Case 3 or 4 as the system cannot find Ctrl + Alt.

Any help or suggestion would be much appreciated.

    Java is a non-Microsoft program, and we do not have a corresponding test environment to test. It is recommended that you go to the Java related forum to ask questions, which will give you a professional answer.
