Test if a given keyboard recognizes chiral modifier data, such as left-control vs right-control.
- The id (identifying name) of a keyboard. Defaults to the currently-active keyboard if not specified.
trueif the keyboard accepts chiral (left-vs-right) variants of CTRL and ALT,
The specified keyboard must have been fully loaded at some point for this information to be accessible; otherwise it
false (non-chiral). It is always accurate for the currently-active keyboard.
With the present system architecture, this is a bit complicated in that a keyboard is only set to 'active' after the
keyboardloaded event completes and after the
keyboardchange event has completed for the
first activation of a keyboard. However, both events return the name of the keyboard involved in the event, and this can
be passed as an argument to
isChiral from the
event's handler to obtain the correct keyboard chirality information.
