FileMaker doesn't have any way to access the last keyboard key pressed. You can keep track of the last FM button pressed, but only by having each button uniquely tied to a script and scripting the saving of this information. If you want to have a bunch of buttons all calling the same script and they discern which exact button invoked the script, you are out of luck.

Sound like you have a lot of scripts to create and buttons to connect!
