The code above returns unichar - symbol (!) code 0-65535. While
keyboard layout is US for example, pressing "P" (lowercase, without
shift or any other modifiers) gives code 112 (ASCII lowercase 'p',
ASCII and Unicode 0-255 matches). Meanwhile after switching keyboard
layout to RU (Cyrillic), pressing the same key produces symbol "з" (I
am sure on www this symbol will not be displayed) with unichar code
1079. And that is the problem - what I need to do to ensure that
pressing "p" in US and "RU" keyboard layouts will do the same action
in my app.
