Mapping a key an extended ASCII Code


(Michael Steel) #1

Hi Everyone,

I have little programming experience, so bare with me.

I want to be able to be able to program a key (particularly the Any key) to output an extended ASCII code character, namely, the non-breaking space character (NBSP; No. 255). When I look at the .h file for the keyboard, I do not see any low-level code for this. Any suggestions how how this could be done would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike

There are hardly any keyboard layouts that map a key to the non-breaking space character, but there are a number of ways to get it, depending on the OS and/or application you’re using.

Is there a sequence or combination of keys you normally type in order to input that character now? If so, you can define a key or a macro to mimic that.

Thank you. I will programming a macro to “ALT+2-5-5”
