Recognizing input - Left Ctrl, Right Ctrl

Post by MATORAX » 01 Mar 2019, 22:56

I have a problem with recognizing keys on my keyboard in LuaMacros. Both left control and right control appear as one key (identical key number). Same thing goes with left and right alt. Is there a way to recognize these keys as different buttons? I can see in logs that those keys have different "extended" flag. How can I test a button in case of a value in that flag?

Now you can't.
But I can add the extended flag as 4th parameter of trigger callback.
In near future or feel free to create issue in https://github.com/me2d13/luamacros/issues for tracking

Version 0.1.1.98 released with support of this parameter.
With code like

Code: Select all

lmc_assign_keyboard('KBD2')

log_handler = function(button, direction, ts, flags)
  print('Callback for device: button ' .. button .. ', direction '..direction..', ts '..ts..', flags '..flags)
end

lmc_set_handler('KBD2', log_handler)
You get for left ctrl (press and release):
Callback for device: button 17, direction 1, ts 8166000, flags 0
Callback for device: button 17, direction 0, ts 8166125, flags 1

And for right ctrl (press and release):
Callback for device: button 17, direction 1, ts 8295125, flags 2
Callback for device: button 17, direction 0, ts 8295203, flags 3

Download link is still the same.

Could flags also be added to left and right Shift keys, pretty please? :)

Flags are parameter of callback function, they are not bound to specific key.
Did you try?

Yes, both Shift keys report Button 16, and flags 0 and 1.
