    Keypad Questions - And my Install Pics

    Not the Best Picture , I you can see the touchpad mouse also, the keypad is the question here .

    1. Could you use it as a T9 Input like ABC DEF , Get the point Like a cellphone, To input text.....

    2. Could you use it to Change the volume, control winamp and roadrunner.

    3. Press num lock again then be able to use it to play games like pacman

    Mabey its simple but im having a hard time finding plugins or guides, I have searched alot

    thats not a bad idea ... i cant say that i know how to do such a thing .. but as always there are options! if you cant find it MAKE IT!
    software: write an app that would inperpret the keypress's and depending on what "mode" its in send different key presses
    hardware: build a device that goes between the keypad and the computer that would again take the keypress's and depending on what mode it was in send a different keypress, you could also rig up an lcd screen off of the board to show what you were typin' (and put it some where more visable)

    granted i dont know how to really do this .. but if this is your only option (im hoping its not ) there are those here that could do this.

    Well, you could easliy control Winamp version 5.x but you are going to have to do programming for anything else. but since RR uses winamp for music, you might be somewhat ok.

    Winamp 5.x has an option to use "global keys" that can be re-assigned to any keystroke you want. When global keys are active in winamp, you can track up down and other things even if you are not in the winamp window.

    another option if you want to spend a little extra money $80 @ www.tigerdirect.com but it works great. You can program the keys to do whatever you want.

    I have done it , used road runner KeyTBL.ini and Keycode program, also mapped keys to start Phoneinput using Girder.
    Works Sweet =) Now I just need to remove volume controls from KeyTBL and use them with Girder.

    Myself, I use a keypad almost identical to that now. There is a program called KeyText that allows you to assign any number or length of macros to a keypress (or multi-keypress). I LOVE this program.

    For instance, since I don't use a frontend, I had a hard time at first gettin the controls to the program I wanted.

    Now, I press NUM-1 and Keytext switches focus to my mediaplayer (ZoomPlayer), then sets random mode, then chooses next song (which give me a random choice), then sets random mode back OFF again so I ain't annoyed by a random choice if I want a specific song later. All of this happens in less than 1.5 seconds and is accomplished with a single keypress.

    Another one, I press a key, it switches focus to MapPoint, brings up the search box (AltF for those who don't know), pastes in my city & state (Austin, TX) then switches back to the streetname field so I can type an address. Again, less than a second and ONE keypress to do it. Why this one? It means I don't have to type in the city&state since everything I search for is in Austin anyway...if you don't put a city/state MapPoint searches the whole US...annoying & timeconsuming search.

    The possibilities are endless with this program...it's awesome.

    That is very aawsome great read... Id like to do some think similar but CDR's Freedom skin is the shizzle. Im going to hav to run with that but road runners keyTBL is very good to use and fuctionalty is great apart from the delays some times im getting with flash. But im looking at upgrading my graphics now because flash is crap
