[code] [Textadept] command_entry events

Does the command entry buffer not emit the CHAR_ADDED event? Or is my
code below flawed? If there's no event, is there another way to get the input?
The only way I can think of other than events is to rebind every character and
 number in mode_keys. I'm running Textadept 10.8 on Linux.


-- Example
function run()
  local function on_entry(c)
  -- define keys
  mode_keys = {
    ['esc'] = function()
      events.disconnect(events.CHAR_ADDED, on_entry)
    ['\n'] = function()
      events.disconnect(events.CHAR_ADDED, on_entry)
  setmetatable(mode_keys, ui.command_entry.editing_keys)

  -- add event handler
  events.connect(events.CHAR_ADDED, on_entry)

  -- open command entry
  ui.command_entry.height = ui.command_entry:text_height(0)
  keys._command_entry, keys.MODE = mode_keys, '_command_entry'
