View Full Version : Clarification needed regarding IR-keyboards

July 16th, 2007, 14:42
Gosh..it's been a really long time since i posted a thread...lol

Well anyway, seeing quite a number of IR-Keyboard supported apps popping up i'm rather keen on getting 1 and the only concern that i have is whether it supports all IR - keyboards or only a small handful.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

this looks nice :)

Not all are supported, but I use one that was made for Blackberry and it works fine.

That keyboard looks nice but I have no idea if it's supported or not. :S

a lot of these apps are using PiKey , and/or monsti's irkb library.
the list of supported keyboards is somewhere (file irkb.h), but i didnt track it
down when I went a-seeking to find if my nikkai keypads supported.
It looked v. feasible tho to add drivers with a standardized i/face in c++ .
targus, palm1 & stowaway universals are all fairly standard nowadays
for most 1/2 decent apps.
