  • Popup Stuff

    Why does the PopUp Stuff Send The Letter D with this code POPUP STUFF chr$(&h44),0,0 This should be F10. I'm running MSdos 6.22 ? There is very little on the Popup Stuff command that I've ben able to find. I really need to stuff F3 but I have 3 programs that use F10. What a great way to test it. Can you Please Point me in the right direction. Thanks

    That would be because CHR$(&H44) = "D", I expect. What you want to pass is the shift code and scan code. According to the appendix on keyboard scan codes, for F10, this should work:

    POPUP STUFF CHR$(0, 68)

    Note that the comma goes inside the CHR$ function.

      68 dec is &h44. In the power basic help screen of scancodes. Am I putting the code in the wrong place? There are three spots and i've tryed to find thid information.

        As Tom noted, you need to specify it as an extended key by adding a leading zero byte.

        Please review the Reference Guide on the POPUP STUFF statement (page 214 & 215 of the printed edition).

        Thanks!

          Thanks guys. I wasn't looking at the ref guide but was useing the example guide. So my Hex code is correct I just wasn't telling popup stuff to use the scan codes.
          On another subject do I need to set memory for a popup timmer program that will do renaming using the shell command?

            I haven't done much MS-DOS work for a while, but I seem to recall the using SHELL in a POPUP can be problematic. You might want to use the NAME command instead of SHELL REN to rename files from a TSR.

              Would i be better off using the stuff buffer with the rename command and the correct syntax?

                To do what?

                I have a complete public domain application using POPUP STUFF, somewhere here, anyway. Data file to modify, documentation, etc in a ZIP archive.

                Drop me a note and I'll email it to you.
