Keyboard Controlling (Output)

First read this to see how to add definitions. To simulate a keyboard shortcut, create a definition and add the action "Simulate shortcut" from the plugin "Keyboard" to the output. A window opens to record the shortcut. You can directly press the shortcut or choose the key from the list.
The hotkeys (like Play, Pause, etc.) will even work if your real keyboard does not have these keys.

The actions "Only press key" and "Only release key" serve for pressing a key for a longer time span.

Keyboard Controlling (Input)

You can add a global keyboard shortcut as an event. In order to, choose "Keyboard shortcut pressed" from the input plugin "Windows" and specify the shortcut. It should not have to few modifier keys (at least two of Ctrl, Shift, Alt or the Win key). The event can only work if the shortcut has not been hooked by another application before.


You can use the Phonepad to enter texts.

Keyboard Macros

Keyboard macros are a very powerful tool to execute complex actions. You can add them by clicking "Special functions" in the tab "Current mode" and then selecting "Keyboard macro".

After clicking "Start recording", you can switch to other applications and X10Receiver.NET will continue recording your key presses in the background until you click "Stop recording".

Every key press is built of two actions - pressing and releasing the key, for combinations, these are nested. Any of these actions can be delayed to allow other applications to do their work.
When you click "Finish", the keyboard macro is converted to a definition, that can only be edited manually by using the tab "Definition list".
