  1. Good morning I was trying to start the Virtual Keyboard of Windows from my script, but everytime I do the Shell from the script, a MsgBox appears to communicate that it's unable to start the virtual keyboard. I run AutoIt on Windows 10 64 bit, and If I double click on "osk.exe", located in C:\Windows\System32, it runs normally... If I try to launch it from my application ( or double click / launch from C:\Windows\SysWOW64 ), it tells me what I wrote above. This is the code I use to launch the Virtual Keyboard ( First, I see if the user has clicked on a checkbox and set the state to checked only, if so, I launch osk.exe ) : If Not (ProcessExists("osk.exe")) And GUICtrlRead($checkbox_DataAuditUtente) = $GUI_CHECKED Then Local $iEsitoAvvioTastiera = ShellExecuteWait($sFileTastieraVirtuale If $iEsitoAvvioTastiera == 0 Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante l'avvio della tastiera virtuale." & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) Exit EndIf EndIf Any suggestions? Thanks
  2. I can never remember the extended ascii codes and I find it tedious keep having to look them up, select them and then having to copy and paste them. So I decided to design an extended ascii virtual keyboard. The layout is intended to be intuitive with numeric keys at the top, alphabetic keys on the left, puntuation in the middle and various other symbols appearing to the right. Keys can not be held down since the virtual keyboard needs to lose focus in order to interact with other windows. The method used is an adaptation of the method used by Info in the following topic: Reading Info's thread saved me some time, and credit must also go to the MvPs who contributed to that project. Not all extended ascii characters are included. Four of the keys on the left act as letter modification locks which effect the letters a, e, i, o, u and y. If you wish to type the actual character displayed on one of the modifier keys, you must press the shift key on your main computer keyboard. To type capital letters you can use the shift key or the caps lock key on your main keyboard. PROBLEMS POSTING THE LATEST CODE The latest code did not display as intended, since the forum software is confusing part of my my code for html. The html entites are displaying as characters and not as code. You need to download the zip file below to view the source. The zip also includes the compiled script, image resources and READ ME.txt which contains important information. This script is a spin off from a bigger project, so I have only developed it to the point where it became a functional tool. I don't intend to take the development of this much further, unless by request; however I will most likely use the keypad design layout for other projects in the future.
