Remap keypad favorite keys with HidMacros

Recommended Posts

Hello
Need some help to assign macros on my new mitsai k120 numeric keypad. There are 4 predefined hotkeys that can’t just reassign them.
All other keys where assign with no problem (Keyb1). How to remap those predefined functions keys?
Calculator, internet, e-mail and file browser.
When I press one of those predefined keys it detects my ch pedals instead. Even with pedals switched off.

Thanks

PS:
Keyb1= numeric keypad
Keyb2= default keyboard
Keyb3= hotkeys of numeric Keypad??

What number is returned when you press the keys using the app at http://keycode.info/.

If you do get numbers and HID macros won't let you remap them, then you may to manually create the entries in the hidmacros.xml file using a text editor.  

I have needed to on several occasions.

Thanks for info, but unfortunately wasn't successful. All my keyboards (Keyb1 and 3) favorite keys the result on that website where 0. After that I tested the following: Restart the Pc with keyb1 (num keypad) disconnected and used sharpkeys to disable all favorite keys on Keyb3 (main keyboard). Then restarted pc again to save registry and with keyb1 connected. Used sharpkeys again to try to disable/identify those keys on keyb1 and wasn't successful. Then I realized that, if I pressed 1 on keyb1 and then one of those favorite keys ex: Calculater, hidmacros detected an event 180(). Created a macro, when I pressed the scan the device detected was Ch pro pedals instead of keyb1 with the same result 180(). Following your suggestion, edited the XML file and for that macro replaced the device Ch pro pedals for keyb1. Saved the file and reopen hidmacros, and still calculator showing up when I press that key.....

Sorry it wasn't.

I have a mini-keyboard and usb keypad and the keypad is the only thing running through HID macros.  

Unfortunately, neither have dedicated function keys, so I can't do any testing.  

Best of luck..
