OK.
So I have my 0/16/16 and my LED64 working fine with FSPhidgets.
The New LevelD 767 has a great SDK with all the LED's output (through FSCONV), but no write capability (I can find)
The only way to send updates to it is through keyboard emulation (i.e. cannot use offsets in FSUIPC).
So therefore I need to be running a program that takes the 0/16/16 switch signals and converts it to keys presses to send to FS.

Reading throught the FSUPIC doc, it would also be do-able with sending Buttton presses to FSUPIC, where FSUIPC could then send keystrokes to FS.

This seems like it would be a very common requirement for FS. Has anyone seen this before? where would I start if I had to do it myself in VB, etc? Not much of a programmer, so not sure exactly what is needed.

Cheers

Redman,

You don't really send keystrokes to FS.
The keystrokes go to the operating system - Windows in this case - which route them to whichever process has focus.

This in not really the forum for a discussion on this.

Regards,
Alan.

I have added keyboard emulation to my version.
Will allow 4 keystrokes to be assigned to any digital input.

Tested it this weekend with another builder.
Will be released with 3.0.10
