Hi Gernot

I've just paired up my wireless Bluetooth Mac keyboard with the TouchPad and while many keys are the same keycode as for pc, some are very different - eg cursor keys (UP cursor is 197) and I can't get values for the other cursor keys.

Here's the code I used -

Code: (glbasic) [Select]
LOCAL a, n

WHILE TRUE

PRINT "PRESS A KEY.",100,50

FOR n=0 TO 255
 IF KEY(n) THEN a=n
NEXT

PRINT a,100,100

SHOWSCREEN

WEND

Is there anything I can do to get these values?
I came. I saw. I played.

Very strange.
I did nothing fancy for webos, so I think it's a mission feature. Can you use the cursor keys in a text box of the webbrowser?

Hi Gernot - yes, the cursor keys work fine in a browser text box.

It would be interesting to see if other BT keyboards have differing values for the cursor keys - I've attached the .IPK file.

As stated above, my Mac BT keyboard produces 197 for UP and no values for any other cursor keys.

I am installing it using this guide, and it is really easy...

It deserves a try...

I'm not waiting because I'm worried about doing it - I'm waiting for a less buggy, non-beta version.

I just played a bit with it and... it was amazing.

I have not seen anything real "alpha". The only thing that crash was the 3D VIEW of photos. I even installed GLOWING SKY FREE from the Market and it works great.

had no problem with the wifi, it worked as expected.

If someone wants to install it, a few things:

-Remove the WebOS kernel patch that overclocks the device or ClockworkMod will not install. You can install the webos path later after the Android install.

-Place the google install package with all the other packages in cminstall, so it will be installed in the first install batch.

-The install process takes a lot of time. 2 times I thought it was frozen; just let it continue. Once installed, the Android boot is faster than webos boot.

I try a compile from GLBasic to AndroTouch, but failed. It was late and didnt want to test further.

Ummm...
WIFI - slow/unstable
Having to hard-reset when idle.

There are others, but they don't bother me. These are two pretty big things for me, as I do let my TP go idle between testing - having to hard reset every two minutes would really annoy.

As for Android, there's nothing on there that I really want that I can't do with my Touchpad & laptop anyway at the moment, so why rush into it?

I did only a few tests, but wifi worked fine for me.

About the reset, it entered in idle status a few times tonite and had not to reset it.

Like I said, I'll wait a bit. Shouldn't be too long, they've got so much working in such a quick time.

To me Android really isn't important. It never has been. It's too fractured to be a valuable asset, with too many variations - I much prefer stable and standard formats. Android tablet apps don't even fit on the TP screen.

If you enjoy it, then great, but I can wait.
