MC32N0 28-key device input additional characters

Dear Community,

 

We use MC32N0 WinCE devices. These devices don't have - (minus) and / (slash) characters on their keypads, but we would need to enter these characters in our telnet application.

Is it possible to remap or reprogram some keys for these characters? Please recommend some ways to achieve it. (As I see there are programmable keys on the keypad, but I haven't found how to use them).

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Imre

Dear Sven,

Yes, it is available, but it is very inconvenient. Some people work in industrial area, eg. using stylo with gloves is very impractical so we try to find another method.

Thanks,

Imre

People with gloves should not use the terminal. They should get UIs usable with keys and scans only.

Other way: if DataWedge is on

Other way: if DataWedge is on you can scan some codes for the characters or whole strings with special characters.

Hi,

Finally I found a working method. Datawedge wasn't good for this problem (or I didn't set it properly).

You can set these programmable keys with key macros:

1. install activesync to your computer

2. install TelnetCE 3200 (WLTE_MOT_MC3200_CE7_7_3_303_AS.exe)

3. start TelnetCE. In the program :

Emulation parameters - Emulation - Common - Key Macros

4. copy the edited termcfg.bin file to your device's telnetce-directory

Datawedge recognize special characters?

I was following this string because I also need to do something similar, but on my RF gun Datawedge doesn't recognize the "\" slashes in the barcode, it seems to remove data before and/or after the slash. How do I fix this so if I scanned the barcode it would actually read Warehouse\WIP\Bin1
