beginner flow control question

Hello everyone,

I have a beginner's question on flow control that I couldn't find an answer to with forum topic search.

My script involves the MainView navigating a maze. There are "setup" hotspots in various locations which set up other "trial" hotspots, which are the ones in which we are interested. The hotspots are working great, but when the MainView reaches the trial hotspot, I would like to do the following:

1. Move the MainView to a specific location
2. Present the user with a text choice
3. Halt all script and inputs until the user presses one of two keys
4. Move the MainView to one of two destinations depending on the keypress

Number 3 is the one I'm having trouble with. I would like to make it such that until the user presses one of two keys, the only action that can be taken is that the MainView can pivot. I would like to make it so that the MainView cannot move through inputs, and that the this condition will last until one of two keys are pressed.

I'm familiar with events but don't see how I can "shut down" the Vizard environment until the appropriate keyevent fires.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
