Keyboard Codes and Commands

The Velocity Console uses the following keyboard codes to represent keypresses in scripts, macros, or commands. These must be entered in the format presented under the Named Value or Hex Value columns below. There are also specific actions, such as voice commands, that can be used as keypresses in a custom keyboard or in command fields.

Macros

A macro lets you combine keypresses or other commands. You can use a macro in any command field. Any subsequent macros or commands join a queue and are played in order.

When you create a macro, you may need to insert pauses to between key values to make sure the host interprets them correctly. By default, the value for {pause} is 250 milliseconds, but you can specify the length of the pause using a colon and then the milliseconds. For example: {pause:500}

The following example creates an auto login macro that includes the user name, tab key, password, field exit, and pauses where needed. You could create a Login button on a keyboard and assign it this value. Then the user wouldn't need to type in the user name or password – just press the custom Login button and the Client would log the user in.

username{pause}{hex:0009}{pause:500}password{hex:000D}

Scripts

Invoke scripts using a {script:[function]} command. This command is intended only to launch a script. The format required to successfully execute a script is shown below:

{script:insertHtml();}

The entirety of a script can be included within this command.

Key Codes

These values can be put in any field that requires a command value, such as menu items, buttons, or keys.
