Modifier Keys


Recommended Posts

I am using the windows GUI to program my new FLIRC for DVB Dream.


I mapped Ctrl-Shift-Up but it is not being recognised by DVB Dream. Having tested the button with a program that outputs key presses, I noticed that the sequence output by FLIRC is:


Ctrl key_down

Shift key_down

Up key_down

Ctrl key_up

Shift key_up

Up key_up.


I think that the problem is that the DVB Dream application is registering the Up key_up event and at this point the Ctrl and Shift keys have been released.


How can I solve this problem? I've tried searching but I can't find anything about this in the help, forums or anything obvious within the GUI.

I guess it is related the the other thread.


I tried mapping the keys in reverse order (e.g, clicking up, then shift, then ctrl) hoping that this would mean that the shift and ctrl where still 'pressed' during the up_keyup event but when I do this it only outputs the up key.


Is the order/timing of keys due to the hardware or could it in theory support more complex timing? Ideally the gui would record a key combination and play it back verbatim..
