General Information

When entering the Sales Manager, three of the Keystroke Toolbars are immediately displayed. The toolbars are "Help", "NumPad", and "TRN". The TRN toolbar is located in the upper right corner of the screen and contains the Payments button (which opens the Payments toolbar) as well as other buttons to make entering sales faster and easier. The NumPad toolbar is located in the lower right corner of the screen and has buttons for entering numbers as well as buttons to Save and Cancel(Escape). The Help Toolbar is located on the bottom of the screen and has buttons to display the "About Keystroke" screen, to access the Main Menu toolbar, access the Utilities toolbar, display the on-screen Keyboard, and more. Pressing the Keyboard button on the Help toolbar opens and closes the on-screen Keyboard toolbar. The Keyboard toolbar is designed to replace a standard keyboard so Keystroke can be run with just a mouse or a touch screen monitor.

A button can be held down causing it to repeat itself the same way a key on the keyboard would. The delay time and repeat rate are based on the Windows Keyboard Properties - Repeat Delay and Repeat Rate settings in the Windows Control Panel. However, different computers use this rate in different ways so the actual rates of the keyboard and the on screen buttons may sometimes be different.

File Names

Keystroke Toolbars and Buttons are loaded from the file TB.DAT. This file is a text based file (simple XML) and can be edited using any text or XML editor (as well as the editors built into Keystroke). The file is stored in the folder "Toolbars\" beneath the Data folder (i.e. "C:\Keystroke\Data\Toolbars\TB.DAT"). See the file Doc\Toolbars.txt for technical information on the structure and commands used within these files.

The ToolBarsFile= Startup Switch can be used to specify a different name for the file (default is "TB.DAT"). If used, then the extension (usually ".DAT") must be specified but the path cannot be (the path must always be "Toolbars\" below the Data folder.

Graphic Images

The default folder for graphic images is the "KSImages\" folder beneath the Keystroke installation folder.

(Example, "C:\Keystroke\KSImages\").

If an image file is selected while using the Button Editor, and that file is not currently located in the "KSImages\" folder, then it is automatically copied to the "Toolbars\MyImages\" folder and the filename displayed in the editor does not include the path.
