Configuring Key Actions

You can configure key behavior for each button you created in your keymap image for the mobile device skin. The key can be configured differently depending on the state the device is in or how many times the key is pressed. Keys can also be configured to toggle the state of the device.

To configure key actions:

1  After you have imported the device image and keymap image into the Skins Editor, click on the key you want to configure. (You can click on the key from any of the device views: Normal, Down, Map, or Overlay.) 

The Edit Key Detail dialog box appears.

2  Enter a Tooltip for the key. The information you enter into the Tooltip text box will display in the Standard Viewer when you move the mouse over that key.

3  Each key state you have created appears as a tab. Each tab defines what happens when the key is pressed while the device is in that state.

4  From the On Click drop-down list, select the action you want this key to perform on the first click. You can also enter the code for the action you want the key to perform in the Code text box.

If you want the key to be a multi-click key, enable the Multi Click option and configure the On Click 2, On Click 3 and On Click 4 options using the drop-down lists.

If you want this key to toggle the state of the mobile device (for example, act as the shift key), enable the Toggle option and type the name of the state that you want the device to switch to in the Code text box.

5  Continue configuring the key for all the states.

6  When you are finished, click OK.

The key is now assigned to perform the actions you configured.

7  Click Apply Changes to save the key configuration.
