|Navigation: Language Reference > App B - Events > Field-Independent Events >====== EVENT:PreAlertKey ======|
The user pressed an ALRT attribute (or ALERT statement) hot key for an ALRT attribute on the window. If a CYCLE statement executes in the code to process this event, the normal library action for the keystroke executes before EVENT:AlertKey generates. This event allows you to specify whether the normal library action for the keystroke executes or not, in addition to the code you place in EVENT:AlertKey. The system is modal during this event.
