In this article we will see how we can get the key symbol string for the modifiers in PYGLET module in python. Pyglet is easy to use but powerful library for developing visually rich GUI applications like games, multimedia etc. A window is a “heavyweight” object occupying operating system resources. Windows may appear as floating regions or can be set to fill an entire screen (fullscreen). Key state handler class is a simple handler that tracks the state of keys on the keyboard. If a key is pressed then this handler holds a True value for it. Symbol string is the symbol of the key which can be recognized by the pyglet module.
We can create a window with the help of command given below 
 

# creating a window
window = pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title)

 

In order to create window we use symbol_string method with the pyglet.window.key
Syntax : key.symbol_string(symbol)
Argument : It takes integer as argument
Return : It returns string 
 

Below is the implementation 
 

Python3




# importing pyglet module
import pyglet
import pyglet.window.key as key
   
# width of window
width = 500
   
# height of window
height = 500
   
# caption i.e title of the window
title = "Geeksforgeeks"
   
# creating a window
window = pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title)
   
# text 
text = "Welcome to GeeksforGeeks Have a nice day"
   
# batch object
batch = pyglet.graphics.Batch()
   
# creating document
document = pyglet.text.document.FormattedDocument(text)
   
# setting style to the document
document.set_style(0, len(document.text), dict(
                         font_name ='Arial', font_size = 16
                         color =(255, 255, 255, 255)))
   
# creating a incremental text layout
layout = pyglet.text.layout.IncrementalTextLayout(
               document, 400, 350, batch = batch)
 
# making layout to display multiline
layout.multiline = True
   
# creating a caret
caret = pyglet.text.caret.Caret(layout, color =(255, 255, 255))
   
# caret to window push handlers
window.push_handlers(caret)
   
# setting caret style
caret.set_style(dict(font_name ="Arial"))
   
   
# on draw event
@window.event
def on_draw():
       
    # clear the window
    window.clear()
       
    # draw the batch
    batch.draw()
       
    # caret to window push handlers
    window.push_handlers(caret)
     
     
 
# creating a key state handler
key_handler = pyglet.window.key.KeyStateHandler()
       
# key press event    
@window.event
def on_key_press(symbol, modifier):
   
    # key "C" get press
    if symbol == key.C:
         
        # printing the message
        print("Key : C is pressed")
         
# image for icon
img = image = pyglet.resource.image("gfg.png")
 
# getting symbol string
value = key.symbol_string(121)
 
# creating text from the value
text = "Symbol string for value 121 : " + str(value)
 
# setting this text to the document
document.text = text
   
# setting image as icon
window.set_icon(img)
    
# start running the application
pyglet.app.run()


Output :
