I'm playing with the boot HID keyboard code from Nico Hood. I've my Arduino Mega 2560 working now as a normal keyboard. When I sent text to the 16U2 it appears directly into notepad or where your cursor might be...
But now I want to play with Excel and want to enter a date. The Excel keyboard shortcut for this is " ctrl ; ".
As far as I know the control key subtracts 64 from the decimal ascii value. But the decimal value of the " ; " is 59 and therefore not in the ascii control character list... (This starts at @)
So can anyone explain to me how to sent the " ctrl ; " or other -non standard- control characters? I would expect an other range of hex codes...
In the time of my vintage Digital PDP8/e it was normal to have this smalls ascii set. But I think there are more possibilities these days :grinning:
