Delete Key

Post by trailpaver » Sat Apr 04, 2015 8:46 pm

I am using a CAD program, and would like to program the 4th or 5th button to the DELETE key. It isn't in the list of options, am I missing it, or is it called something else?

"Simulated keystrokes" is the option you are looking for. Then, in there, {DELETE}

Thanks,
Phil

I am after the same key arrangement but, when I set my key 4 to Simulated Delete and my key 5 to Escape, neither of them works. Does this program work with a Kensington Trackball which is what I am using?

There is no reason it shouldn't work with such a track ball.
If you open the settings window, do the dropdown buttons (where you selected simulated keystrokes) highlight in orange when you press the buttons? If they do, then XMBC is seeing the messages so it shouldn't have any problem re-mapping them.

If there is no orange highlight - and XMBC is not disabled, then maybe there is a compatibility problem with your device or its driver. Some mice (Logitech) can be configured at the driver level so they dont send the usual windows messages. In this case, XMBC will not work and the configuration must be set to windows default. I have no idea if your trackball behaves in this way.

What device driver is it using? If it is a Generic HID device, it should be OK.

Thanks,
Phil

Just as you suggested I opened "settings" and when I press the reprogrammed buttons they light up in orange. Yet, when I try them, neither the simulated "delete" button (Middle button on my Kensington Trackball model K64325) or the "escape" simulation on button #4 works.

When I go the device manager of my Windows 7 it shows (under mice & pointing devices) that this is an "HID compliant mouse"

Any other suggestions that can get this problem solved would be greatly appreciated.

OK so if they highlight that's a good start :).

Maybe your configuration is not quite right - can you possible send me a screen-shot of the sim-keys dialog (you wont be able to post images here until you have 4 or 5 posts so you could email it to me - phil [@t] highrez.co.uk. It might also be good to get a copy of your settings file so I can check it over.

It might be useful to enable debug logging so we can see what is going on, but I we can check thats after I have checked our configuration.

Thanks,
Phil
