How to create keypress check for specific key to run script on exit of popover

I want to be able to create a popover that when pressing a specific key it exits to a certain script.  This is in a layout where a part is looked up.  A variable has been create with the following Set variable [$Gnumber;Value:""] which then displays in a popover which I want the user to enter the number and then press a certain key (like F8 or F9) which then runs a script that assigns that variable to perform a find in the database.  My issue is how do I test for certain keystrokes in an easy way, what codes are assigned to function keys or even the enter key?

 

Thanks

Paul

Unrelated to your question, but setting a variable to an empty string does not "create" it. On the contrary: it erases it, if it already existed. If it didn't, the action does nothing.

WRT to the question, it seems that a custom dialog, showing a global field, would be a more appropriate choice here.
