Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta

Here is 2.16 Beta 16... Changes since v2.16 Beta 15 : #488 - Add {ACTIVATE} simkey tag to activate the window under the cursor (note: probably wont work in portable version). #487 - Add ability to save/restore up to 10 cursor position {MSAVE:x} {MREST:x}. There are no changes to the translation tem...

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta

Edit again: It seems to unfocus window afterall. One profile that I set to work only while active stopped that to work when I added that tag. :( Checking the 'Only send if profile's process is active ' box will, of course, render the {ACTIVATE} tag useless! The tag only has utility when a window (p...

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta

Tested: The {ACTIVATE} tag works great! - just as expected! I needed to first add this new tag/symkey to the 'Middle button' of my 'Default' profile. I now have the pleasure of updating a dozen other custom profiles to take advantage of this! I'll report back if any other niggles show up... Please ...

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta

"{ACTIVATE} Tag" Done it already :) - it nice and easy! Question is, do I release a new beta without the "documentation" in the simkey window - in case it does not work and then is not worth doing all the translations.... .... Yes I think I do - and if it works (you can confirm) I will add the docu...

Good thinking - I will see what I can do (in the next beta).
So Cool! 8) Glad this resonates and thanks for listening. Really looking forward to this! :)

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta (Feature Request) Middle Button-Activate Window Under Cursor

Request: Per profile (in each layer), provide a checkbox option to 'Activate' the window under the cursor when the 'Middle Button' is pressed - This option is ONLY needed for the middle button (see below). Rational/Use Case: With the exception of the 'Middle Button', ALL of the other (non-wheel) mo...

XMBC 2.16 Beta (Feature Request) Middle Button-Activate Window Under Cursor

Hi Phil, I appreciate, once again, all of your great work on the recent 2.16 Betas. An issue has been bugging me for years, so I finally thought of a possible solution which is hopefully a (relatively) straightforward and useful feature to add to XMBC (perhaps in the next beta series). I wouldn't be...

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta

I think JT has grasped the idea. In short, the difference between current Layer modifiers and my suggestion is: Current: Press and hold Shift - the layer changes, click desired mouse buttons, Release Shift - layer reverts. Your finger is constantly pressing Shift during the mouse clicks. My suggest...

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta

Realtime is difficult in user land... To do proper real time you need to be in a kernel driver.... but I'll assume thats what you mean otherwise its a no go in XMBC I really meant to say 'good enough' time or 'perceived real-time'. I'd like to think that hooking+re-injecting keystrokes shouldn't in...

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta

Yes XMBC uses a keyboard hook to look for the layer modifier keys, and while the key is down, the layer is switched. The problem is, delaying a key (by delaying I mean blocking and then re-simulating after some time has passed and I can be sure that your not modifying the layer) until it knows if a...

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta

An interesting idea (to only look to see if a layer modifier key is down when the mouse button/wheel is sent) but I think there is a problem with that because AFAIK, the only way a key press can be blocked is in a keyboard hook, as it does now. It cant wait until a mouse button is pressed and then ...

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta

Oh right, now I understand. The problem is, that to do this, I need to block keys and that's going to cause problems - not least, being very annoying if shift (or others) is blocked and does not work as expected. For starters, how do I know you are pressing shift to modify the layers as opposed to ...

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta (Layer Modifier-Key Interference)

Hi Phil, Not sure if this is a 'Beta' feature request/fix or if there already exists a workaround for this issue: My issue is that the 'Layer Modifier Keys' are interfering with the 'Simulated Keys' that I'm attempting to send to an application window. Hi Again Phil, As I look deeper into this issu...

Re: XMBC 2.16 Beta (Layer Modifier Keys affecting Sim Keys)

hummm that's an interesting one... Right now, I can see how that could be a problem, but some people actually make use of this problem, so if I change it it may break other things, hummmm.... I will think on it for now and see if anyone else has any comments. Actually, if someone wanted this to hap...
