I believe that on a 'regular' Mac with a 'regular' keyboard, F14/F15 are intercepted at a low level (in the IOKit), do not produce a kEventRawKeyDown Carbon event (or old-style WNE keyDown event), and thus are not available to an application's event handler. The story may be different on PowerBooks with a 'Fn' key or with an external keyboard. You can poll the keyboard status with GetKeys, which will report that F14/F15 are down, but as far as I know you cannot disable the brightness functions of these keys. Robert P.
