Reference keyReleased()

keyReleased()

A function that's called once when any key is released.

Declaring the function keyReleased() sets a code block to run once automatically when the user releases any key:

function keyReleased() {
  // Code to run.
}

The key and keyCode variables will be updated with the most recently released value when keyReleased() is called by p5.js:

function keyReleased() {
  if (key === 'c') {
    // Code to run.
  }

  if (keyCode === ENTER) {
    // Code to run.
  }
}

The parameter, event, is optional. keyReleased() is always passed a KeyboardEvent object with properties that describe the key press event:

function keyReleased(event) {
  // Code to run that uses the event.
  console.log(event);
}

Browsers may have default behaviors attached to various key events. To prevent any default behavior for this event, add return false; to the end of the function.
