My virtual keyboard application Vkeyboard has been upgraded with the ability to edit and create new keyboards.
The total number of keyboards allowed in theory is limited by the number of files per directory your particular version of RISC OS allows.
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.
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.
A new button has been added to Currency which is a Swap and Convert button. Which swaps the from and to currencies around and gets the exchange rates at the same time.
Also the currency symbol for Ethiopia has been added.
My currency application Currency has been updated to version 1.05 with a sprite of the currency symbol if it is known under the Country Info section. Also menu ticks on items selected and on the from and to menus items selected on the other menu is greyed out.
I will add missing currency symbols when I find them or people give me them.
This application requires Wget and a working internet connection with the data coming from The Free Currency Converter API site.
The recently updated Vkeyboard contained a very minor typo with the function keys F10 F11 and F12 being labelled F!0 F!1 and F!2.
That idiotic mistake has been fixed and uploaded.
My virtual keyboard application Vkeyboard has been updated to include the function keys.
One difference to the real keyboard is that F12 opens a task window rather than the command line for obvious reasons.
