[Request] for [theta x, t,] key
Hello

The [theta x, t,] key just put x repetitively, my idea is:

a tap x -> [x]

Double-click xx -> [y]

3 taps -> [z]

4 taps... -> [t]

5 taps... -> [theta]

Do you agree with this idea?

Better yet have the key put up a soft key menu: x, y, t, theta, n

I think I saw somewhere the idea proposed (change variable in each new keystroke), you know that calculator?

Here's a teaser from one of the projects that I've been working on... hopefully things will be ready for a public release soon. :-)

With user keys on, pressing XTTN in the manner you described will return x,y,z,t,θ (and shift-XTTN will return in caps).

Code:
 EXPORT MultiTap(K,L1) BEGIN   LOCAL Delay:=200;   LOCAL C:=0;   LOCAL P:=1;   LOCAL T:=0;   REPEAT      T:=TICKS;       WHILE ISKEYDOWN(K)==P DO       IF TICKS-Delay>T THEN         IF P==1 THEN           C:=C+1;         END;         BREAK 2;       END;     END;     IF P==1 THEN       C:=C+1;     END;       P:=ISKEYDOWN(K);   UNTIL 0;    RETURN IFTE(C≥1 AND C≤SIZE(L1), L1(C), L1(1)); END; KEY K_Xttn() BEGIN   LOCAL L1:={"x","y","z","t","θ"};   LOCAL K:=17;   RETURN MultiTap(K,L1);  END; KEY KS_Xttn() BEGIN   LOCAL L1:={"X","Y","Z","T","θ"};   LOCAL K:=17;   RETURN MultiTap(K,L1);  END;

Hello,

Nice idea!

Cyrille

Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.
