This video tutorial (5:16) associated GameMaker file and will show you how to make your player move using the keyboard and stop when each key is released.
Over the years, I find that students often ask how to do 'something' specific in GameMaker and pulling it out of a large tutorial or trying to sift through an entire game to see the sample can be overwhelming. I have found that by creating isolated examples, it is easier to understand the specific concepts. Students can then take the concept and apply it to their game more easily.
