Of course things never end up as easy as you expect them to be.
I am still working on this however and will get it resolved. The problem at the moment is, I am not sure the keyboard buttons I am altering are the correct keyboard buttons, the orbiter keyboard buttons I was checking device data on may or may not be the orbiter buttons and the device I am telling all these buttons to go to may or may not be the browser.
Either QuickDesigner is not the proper tool for this or I do not yet know how to look for things in it. So far I can not have it produce a list of device #s or action #s. These would be extremely helpful in testing. The menus I am able to navigate actually show about 13 varieties of *browser* so at this point I am somewhat guessing when I make changes. Also the "where used" option does not seem to be working, that alone could be used to give me the screen where the mousepad is used, I could query objects in that screen and know exactly where those buttons send their outputs. This is what I thought I had already with device -300 which again I am not sure what device that actually is.
Last, something that really confuses me about the onscreen keyboard is that with no changes at all the buttons sometimes work. I believe this is due to a stay active command for the browser. Click on the browser and you get a flashing cursor where you would enter text. When you move down to the onscreen keyboard the mouse icon changes to a large cross, clicking on the keyboard buttons then makes the keyboard active and deactivates the browser. To break this function, navigate to a page with saved username or password fields (or probably any site with this type of drop down menu) begin entry into the username field until a drop down menu appears. Now when you move the mouse icon down to the keyboard the icon does not change shape and ONE button click will make it through to the browser.
Thoughts on the above work around: Because no button I found was mapped to a specific application and was instead blank indicating the command should be sent to DCE, the fix for this may not be in keyboard button settings at all, but in the change from "mouse position over browser" and "mouse position over virtual keyboard." Again I have maybe two hours into tinkering with this only at this point.
Does anyone happen to know of a live DL location for HADesigner? Some of the search tips and commands I am getting are for use in that program.
