Overview

Indicates if the Control key was held down at the time the key event occurred. Note that this property is guaranteed to return true if the key that was just pressed down was leftCtrl or rightCtrl.

Example

local function onKeyEvent( event )
    if event.isCtrlDown then
        -- The Control key was held down for the given key
    else
        -- The Control key was not held down for the given key
    end
    return false
end

-- Add the key event listener
Runtime:addEventListener( "key", onKeyEvent )
