[fxruby-users] key event capturing - help

I am using foxGUIb for the gui front end (I don't believe this is where my issue
is) but i cannot get a couple of things right.
How do I use the keys.rb file within my project?
Currently I am doing a require 'keys' and then including it.
this then allows me to access constant variables like KEY_Return etc.
I am using within my event handler this type of code....
if KEY_Return.to_s == <what do i put in here?>
event.state (this gives me 16, 17 for shift, 20 for Ctrl, 24 for Alt, 16
for backspace & tab & delete & insert so it's not the best).
a.to_s and this to be compared to the Key_Return.to_s value but this
After having a read of lyle's PDF I found that there is another method I hadn't
known about call code using this gives me a match to the KEY_Return constant
that I was looking for!!
So now I have this....
if KEY_Return.to_s == event.code.to_s
statements in here WILL be actioned ONLY when the keyboard enter key IS
Hope this may help someone down the track.
