Xtreme Hotkey for Backlight

Post by surveyjoe » Fri Sep 29, 2006 4:23 pm

Is there a hotkey combination to turn on/off the Tracker Xtreme backlight?

The documentation is not very clear about this.

Which 8 keys are programmable?

Thanks

John

There is unfortunately no keyboard shortcut to control the backlight. The best method to change the brightness is through the Control Panel. While the Hotkeys section in the control panel appears to provide a method of doing this, there are no user programmable keys.

We have created a new keyboard mapping file, to include support for the Hotkeys using 2nd-1 through 2nd-8. Backlight Brightness is controlled with 2nd-3 and 2nd-4. You can download the new Keyboard Mapping Files for your Tracker Xtreme at http://www.microsurvey.com/support/fiel ... nloads.htm
