[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!
