Keyboard functions

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Would anybody be able to actually confirm what exactly the external keyboard (on v9.6) can and cannot do (function keys etc.)?

Perhaps a kind soul from Zero88 could enlighten us?

The alphanumeric keys are used for entering text (memory names etc)

 

The numeric keys are used for entering numeric data, and must be terminated by ENTER.

 

The cursor keys (arrow keys) mimic the up/down arrow keys and +/- keys on the front panel.

 

The function keys F1-F4 mimic those on the front panel.

Hiya all,

 

You know the backspace key on the frog soesn't work for some reason when you put in a memory number to jump to it allows you to backspace. Why doesn't it do this when entering names etc.??

This is because the naming function and numerical entry of data via external keyboard were written and implemented at different times 8O

 

The naming function was originally written based on the somewhat clunky method of using the cursor keys and +/- keys and then extended to include the external keyboard. Unfortunately, the backspace functionality was omitted :oops:

 

There is an outstanding FR No relating to text entry and the use of backspace etc. and this will be reviewed if, and when we decide to do another feature update.
