Code sample for wxKeyEvent::GetKeyCode() does not work correctly

Patch: no


The code snippet does not work correctly when a Backspace is keyed: event.GetUnicodeKey() returns 8, which is not printable.

Until GetUnicodeKey() is modified to return WXK_NONE for Backspace, the documentation needs to be modified. Suggested correction: replace the line

if ( event.GetUnicodeKey() != WXK_NONE )


wxUniChar e = event.GetUnicodeKey();
if ( wxIsprint(e) )

(In [72420]) Fix example of using GetUnicodeKey() in the documentation.

A Unicode key is not always printable, it can be a control character as well.

Closes #14622.
