11.4 Key Mapping


Function Keys on Keyboards and Panels can be assigned any keymacro command by the user.   The keymacro can call another KeyMacro file or Script.


The keyboard keys can be mapped using a subset of  keymacro command functions. The F1 through F10 function keys on Windows standard Keyboards along with the Control-key (CTRL), Shift-key (Shift) and Alternate-key (Alt) in combination with Alphabetic keys can be used to execute keymacro commands.  The keys that can be mapped to a KeyMacro commands are


<TAB>,<S_TAB>, <LS>,<RS>, <S_LS>, <S_RS>, <CTL_LS>, <CTL_RS>, <UP>, <DN>, <S_UP>, <S_DN>, <HOME>, <END>, <CR>, <ESC>, <F1> to <F10>, <S_F1> to <S_F10>,<ALT_F1> to <ALT_F10>, <ALT_A> to <ALT_Z>, <ALT_1> to <ALT_9>, <ALT_0>, <CTL_F1> to <CTL_F10>, <CTL_A> to <CTL_Z>, <F1>.


A user pressing one of the mapped keys will execute the assigned Keymacro (for example, pop-up a Help file).


Keymapping can be Global (for all Graphic Displays) or keymapping can apply to a single graphic display.
