RAlt, RCtrl recognize

Postby Tinws » 2016-04-20 12:47

Hello UltraVNC team! Thank you for the great product. I want to ask you, can you "teach" UltraVNC recognize right Control and Alt keys. Is it possible to commit this change in next release?

P.S. Sorry for my english

Did you tried it with scroll lock enabled.

The scroll-lock key is used to tell the OS that the hotkey need to be send remote else the OS capture the key before it reach the viewer.

Yes, i work with scroll lock enabled but key codes for Alt/RAlt & Ctrl/LCtrl (maybe for Shift/LShift too) is similar. My configuration: viewer on Win2k, server on Win7 SP1 x64 (with x64 version of UltraVNC), UltraVNC version - 1.2.1.0.
Also i set nohotkeys option to 1 in viewers ini file because i use many hotkeys for macroses. I use a lot FAR manager and for example Ctrl+1 and LCltrl+1 make different operations.

Example how to test this behavior.

1. Download and run any version of FAR on UVNC server machine (http://farmanager.com/download.php?l=en)
2. LCtrl+0..9 - set panel mode
3. RCtrl+0..9 - folders shortcuts (but they don't work because RCtrl don't sent by viewer)

N.B. To set quick folder number zero (RCtrl+0) press F9 -> c -> d than press Insert, Esc

There are no settings and this is not something that can be fixed in a few minutes.
The only thing you can try is to use the alternate keyboard method ( viewer option)

I did not find "Alternate keyboard method" in viewer (or viewers ini) but it present
in <Admin Properties> of server. When i turn it on, nothing changes, so i turn it off and try to scan key codes when Scroll Lock is off and it helps. So, if Scroll Lock is off RAlt & RCtrl works fine but turning on/off ScrLk not comfortable in use. Maybe with this information it will be easier to fix?

viewer ->options->mouse and keyboard
On older viewers it's called japanese keyboard handling.

Indeed, it's also on the server site...can't remember why it's also on the server.

Tried now with <Japanese keyboard> - same false result when ScrLk on.

What means <on older viewers it's called japanese keyboard handling>?
In last 1.2.1.0 viewer options exist only <Japsnese keyboard> and no <Alternate keyboard> option.

N.B. I guess both of this options must be turned on because if try to connect with <Japanese keyboard> but without <Alternate keyboard method> (on server) viewer crashing (throw exception).
