Various Updates To Vkeyboard

I have made various updates to my virtual keyboard application vkeyboard, they are

  • New radio button added Lower which gives a lower case board
  • Caps button changed to a radio button
  • Shift button changed to a radio button
  • Better handling when swapping cases
  • Removed 77 limit on keyboards
  • Title bar gives keyboard name and what case it is in
  • Menu code improved
  • Added Dvorak UK keyboard.


I have a couple of ideas for future versions, 1 is a keyboard editor, creator and perhaps a shutdown button.


MPdata+ New Feature Added

A new feature has been added to the application to keep tabs on your Member of the UK Parliament MPdata+.

The new feature is a new button entitled MP on the Web which opens up a new window with the following

  • MP’s own website
  • Wikipedia page
  • Twitter page
  • Facebook page

It will only show their web presence if known.

This application requires a working internet connection and wget to work.
Information comes from the excellent They Work For You.


MPdata+ What Do You Want Added

I am in the middle of updating my UK Parliament MP checking application MPdata+ with a new window of the MP on the web, with their own website, on Wikipedia, Twitter and Facebook.

If anyone wants other things added please let me know and if possible I will look to implementing it.
