I want to show if a code is locked or unlocked and a fun way I thought of would be to use a unicode character. How would I type Unicode characters such as “🔒” (U+1F512), or is that beyond the pi's abilities. I'm running python 3 on a raspberrypi 2.

  • ¿ Do you means this ? ¿ = press Alt key and type 0191 on the numeric keypad. – tlfong01 Nov 17 at 5:00
  • @tlfong01 You've got to be kidding me. I looked for way to long and only saw people doing Ctrl + Shift + U + the unicode number and that was never working. Thanks. however do you know if it's possible for the lock to be entered, or is that beyond the pi's abilities? – WatsonBoi Nov 17 at 5:15
  • Well, just now I googled "How to type inverted question mark" and Wikipedia tells me the story of the Spanish's inverted question mark. Perhaps you can do something similar. – tlfong01 Nov 17 at 5:24
  • 🔒 ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿ 🔒 – tlfong01 Nov 17 at 5:25
