[archive] Using Ctrl keys to cut and paste

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 08 February 2007]

Is there a way to configure the windows ctrl V and ctrl P keys to cut and paste data running in thin client? We are using version 7.2 and accessing a Linux thin client through a windows workstation.

Thanks for any help.

RE: [archive] Using Ctrl keys to cut and paste

try...
SET ENVIRONMENT "KEYSTROKE" TO "Exception=9990 ^X"
SET ENVIRONMENT "KEYSTROKE" TO "Exception=9991 ^C"
SET ENVIRONMENT "KEYSTROKE" TO "Exception=9992 ^V"
SET ENVIRONMENT "KEYSTROKE" TO "Exception=9993 ^Z"
SET ENVIRONMENT "KEYSTROKE" TO "Exception=9994 ^A"

SET EXCEPTION VALUE 9990 TO CUT-SELECTION
SET EXCEPTION VALUE 9991 TO COPY-SELECTION
SET EXCEPTION VALUE 9992 TO PASTE-SELECTION
SET EXCEPTION VALUE 9993 TO UNDO
SET EXCEPTION VALUE 9994 TO SELECT-ALL-SELECTION

you may need to play around with the exception values as you may already be using these values for something else.

As an aside a very very useful tool for copying is "ScreenOCR". This enables you to copy from other areas of the screen - not just the entry fields. Have a look our users have found it very useful at times.

Thanks for the Help Les,

The ScreenOCR is something we have been looking for since we went to GUI.

I will try the other suggestions and let the forum know how it works.

Thanks again,
