trapping escape key without user input

Hi,

 

Does anyone know of a way to trap when the user hits the escape key without a user input function. The idea is to loop infinitely and perform some analysis until the user hits the escape key.

 

I supose I could do the same thing with a form but I would not.

 

Thanks in advance.

This is the simplest example:

This is a slightly different approach, and the example code does much more than what you are looking for, but not exactly what you are looking for, so you'd have to tweak it a bit.
