Keys not being blocked?

Post by wolfmitchell » 13 Feb 2018, 02:45

With this simple script, whenever I press a key on the attached numpad, it shows on the log on LuaMacros, but the key press is still sent to the application. How would I fix this?

Code: Select all

clear()
lmc_device_set_name("numpad", "8343707")
lmc_set_handler('numpad', function(btn, dir)
    print(btn, dir)
end)

Your script is fine, so stopping the key doesn't work for some reason.
Is it "regular" windows application like notepad? Or some game?

The key isn't being blocked in Vivaldi (web browser based on Chrome), LuaMacros itself, Notepad, HexChat (IRC client), and Discord (chat client).

I'm guessing there isn't anything I can do to fix it?

Hard to say, there's something specific in your system.
You can run the case with full logging and check the log for some strange message...

Hi,

I encounter the same issue with the following script - key events are not blocked in multiple programs, especially Windows' start menu.
The script in use:

Code: Select all

clear()
lmc_log_all();
lmc_log_spool('this_will_be_long.log')

lmc_device_set_name('Remote', '10BCEBFB');

lmc_set_handler('Remote',string.byte('Z'),0,function(button, direction)
  lmc_send_input(string.byte('Y'), 0, 0) -- press Y
  lmc_send_input(string.byte('Y'), 0, 2) -- release Y
end)
And the corresponding log:

Code: Select all

Got the same issue, but only for some specific software :
StartMenu, Discord (only for Push To Talk), some game

I have no issue with more 'regular' software like Firefox, Notepad++, Discord Text chat

any ideas on this? i have the same issue with SAP and i thought it was only with that program but it also happens in word and excel. on a keyboard tester it only activates the macro and not the hotkey used to activate it.

this is all mine is right now until i can fix this issue

Code: Select all

lmc_device_set_name('SAP','20D7E92')
lmc_print_devices()

lmc_set_handler('SAP', function(button,direction)
  if (direction == 1) then return end
  if (button == 97) then
    lmc_send_keys('XRWP{DOWN 1}', 50)

    elseif (button == 98) then
    lmc_send_keys('+{F5}', 50)

    elseif (button == 99) then
    lmc_send_keys('^c', 50)


  end
end
)
