I use Manjaro KDE. If I enabled "Caps" the widget moves to the left of the panel about 20 pixels. This happens only with Caps, not with "Num". I've tried with many different panel heights and fonts. If I press Caps again the text "Caps" dissapear and the widget moves back to the right. It happens also with the layout Rectangle and Symbol.

Hi Martin,
I would like to translate in Italian language your good Key State plasmoid. Could you give to me any instruction for it?
Many thanks...

Hi Martin,

Thanks for this great plasmoid. I'd like to request a new feature:
When a state of a key CHANGES, an OSD or a notification would be great to show up (sometimes I can't notice that I accidentally pressed the CapsLock key).
On certain notebooks (ThinkPad+Windows, Chromebook) a small OSD indicates the key state in the bottom-left corner by default. As far as I know QT doesn't support to scale and position OSD therefore a simple kdialog would be great, at least for me.
Here's a sample: $ kdialog --title 'CapsLock' --passivepopup 'ON' 1

In case others like this and so can you, could you implement this into your code, please?
(An OSD example in another project: https://github.com/KDE/plasma-pa/blob/master/applet/contents/ui/main.qml)

Thank you in advance,
Gyorgy

I have a Logitech keyboard with a Fn key which determines the role of the F-keys. Alas there is no indicator on the keyboard if the key is activated. Would it be possible to add an indicator for the Fn key to your widget?

Nice to have it for Plasma/KF 5, thanks. Would it be possible to offer a look like this http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=152082? Would be much better visible.

What about a color changing color feature,
from white/black/gray to color?
or a frame?
It will increase visibility!
90% cool.

Lack of such widget was the last thing preventing me from moving from ubuntu to kubuntu - thanks

But it would be better, if the KeyState only become visible in system tray, if an key was pressed.

No please don't! Blank space is confusing. IMHO better: active key = green background or that plasma blue and inactive key transparent background and dark or light grey font color (depending on theme/panel background) - like this: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=152082

"No please don't! Blank space is confusing"
But this is exactly, what I mean:
Now there is, if no Key is active, a blank space in the system tray area.
But I think there is an option, to set the KeyState inactive (hide the symbol) if no Key is pressed.

So you meant to completely hide the icon in case no key ist pressed? And I meant I want to see the icon even if no key is pressed :). Preferably not blank but greyed out text/symbol. Would be great if there were more options for look & feel :). I don't want my panel layout to change when I press a key, I want to have all symbols in place at all times.
