Shift Key
« on: January 25, 2006, 07:28:00 AM »
I have just got a nifty wireless keypad which allows me to use it as a pendant for manual axis control. The only problem is that it does not have a SHIFT key. Does anyone know how I can reassign the Shift in Mach 3 or remap rapid travel to not need the shift key.

There is an OEM code that will do it I think... I will get back to you on that.

No such luck :( So we are going to have to add a littl VB code to make your keyboard work :) We can have a button on the screen to set you to 100% jog and we will write the old slow jog rate to a Var in Mach3. So it will be about the same as having a shift key .... Is this okay?

Sounds fine to me. So in effect you will create a key similar to Caps Lock whic I can assign.

I use the default screens that come with Mach 3. I suppose I would need to use it on the mdi screen and when setting up using offsets.
