Trigger explosion on kineme particle

Hi. I have been looking at different examples of kineme particles and now I can see how it works... the Problem is that I would like to trigger an explosion with a key but I have not been able to figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated

cheers

I find that referring to and experimenting upon the source code example compositions usually clarifies for me what does and doesn't work Particles Tools - wise .

Please find attached a simple trigger happy example - press space bar to make explosions.

Thanks so Much cybero... Nice. It kind of works for what I am looking for, but I wish it was more like a "detonation" trigger rather than a visibility. But it works nonetheless. Thanks again!

If you take a "butchers hook" at the explosive and time freezing example from smokris, should fit the bill better.
