    I tried to get the zoom working last night but I had a little problem. The focus is not always on the actual map window. I'm just learning the rr setup and code so i'm not sure if there is a way to tell it to first change focus to the map and then SENDKEY {+}. Also, I'm not sure how to identify what the map window's section name is.

    I was able to get the Directions/Route Guide toggle to work as well, but I'm at work and don't remember the exact changes. I'll post them tonight.

    One more thing. I think I would want to add a "Clear Route" button too. I may look into this tonight as well.

    Ok, a little more info for the OSK issue. The root problem has to do with focus change. Both S&T and IE select the text in the box every time they get focus. Based on this I am assuming that they way the OSK works is to reset focus back to the app and do a sendkey for each keystroke. Good in practice for most, but not in this case.

    There are a couple of different workarounds I have found for this, but being unfamilure with the RR code I am not sure wich is best.

    1) Send a "Right Arrow" before each keystroke. This will put the cursor at the end of the text already in the box and not overwrite it.
    2) Wait until the "ENTER" key is pressed on the OSK and send what is in the text box to the form in one shot without focus change.
    3) Use the clipboard method I outlined earlier where again on the "ENTER" key press within the OSK, copy the text in the text box to the clipboard, then change focus to the app and send "CTL-V then ENTER".

    Anyone more familure with the code have any ideas?

    Why not just use the ACTIVATE command in RR to get focus on the windowname you need?

    That is the problem, the way it seems to currently work is that every time you "Touch a Key" it sends the key immediatly to the window. This causes a focus change from the OSK to the app, in this case S&T. The way both S&T and the URL text box in IE work is that every time they gain focus they select (Highlight) what ever is in the box and replace it with the newly sent keystroke. And this cycle continues switching focus between the app and the OSK for every "Key Press".
    There are no problems, only solutions.

    ahhhh....very interesting....I just got an idea from what you guys said, but I'm not sure it would work exactly.

    How about adding a button to the OSK that you would press once you finished typing in the address you want to route for.

    Example:
    - Prior to opening the Route Planner pane you press the OSK button.
    - Type in the address.
    - Instead of pressing Enter, you press a "Route" button. This button first opens the Route Planner plan which defaults to the text box needed and then press Enter for you. Thus pasting the whole address into the text box.

    Could it work?

    My apologies for being new to the RR code, but are you saying that one can specify an internal window to a program instead of the main program window?

    So, If the + sign is what I can use to zoom in when the map window has focus, I could do something like this for the "zoom in" button?
    Code:
    B##,#,###,##,##,"ACTIVATE;- actual map window name||SENDKEY;{+}","Zoom In"

    yes, you should be able to...look for a tool called Winspector Spy, which will return window names of windows objects.

    Thank you for the that program!! That is sweet. I'm still having difficulties getting the focus to work, but I think I will be able to get it. I just need to find the right code to use.

    I wish I could help with this on screen keyboard issue because I would love a good fix to the problem. Currently I am using some on screen keyboard I downloaded off of google for free. You can set how transparent it is but it has no screen to show you what you have typed. Therefore unless you make the screen very transparent you can't see what you're typing until you're done. Good luck.

    I get this every time, not just the first. Any fix?
