On screen keyboard
« on: April 23, 2007, 11:12:32 AM »
Saw this on another forum but using the MS onscreen keyboard makes it easier for me to type in simple text rather then moving from my mouse to a keyboard.  Not  a big deal but nice and free.  Under start->all programs->accessories->accessibility

You can also put a button on the screen to open the keyboard.

in VB you do the following:
Shell"osk.exe" 'This will open the On Screen Keyboard


and

Shell "calc.exe" 'This will open the calculator :)

Hope that helps

Open Screen4, open your screen in screen 4, add a button and double click on it and check that it is to be a VB button. save and exit. Open Mach, go to Operator menu, click Edit Button Script, paste in the code Brian has mentioned and save.
