    thats exactly what I am coding in my application but for the touchscreen in my CarPC. Its easy for touch screen but for usb keyboard the best way would be to write a keyboard hook.

    Hope this helps

    I've been considering trying to figure out something like this, will make things pretty good However, using a standard style keypad, will probably move numbers round, so that the buttons are in same places as on a mobile (ie 8 is ABC, rather than 2), that way, you can do it by feel, and have everything in the same positions as on a mobile.

    In VB I guess it wouldn't be too difficult, just get it to have a timer on keypress, and if you press the same key within the timer, it moves onto the next key, otherwise it "posts" the key that you were last on.

    Would be useful for searching through playlists easily
