I have the job of entering hundreds of computers into a program for work. In the past I used HIDMacros to simplify this process but, for some reason, it now will type the key I press while it is doing what I set it to do. I then came to Lua, but I cannot figure out how to set anything up in this and the tutorials don't really clear anything up. Here is what I would like to do:
I have an external number pad that I would like to apply macros to specific keys. If I press the number "7" I would like the computer to hit TAB six times and then press enter. I would then scan a barcode and then press "8" and it would press TAB 3 more times, I would scan another barcode, and then press "9", which would be TAB twenty-seven times and then press enter.
Can anyone give some help on how to accomplish this? I assume once I figure out how to tell Lua that I only want it with the second keyboard and how to do the commands, I could change it to what I need it to do, I just don't know how to start.
