ooops, I wanted to say "the result of the string sent to the object 
depends on the hardware"

  and not "the result of ascii code depends on your hardware".

  also if you click on the message that emulate keystroke, the focused 
window will still be the pd patch because it focuses on mouse release, 
also the object doesn't seem to work if we use [key] for triggering the 
message, so I put a delay between the bang and the message, then the 
message is sent after the mouse click is released.

an example is attached
