0.2.2 BETA works like a charm on:
- vista business
- OneNote 2007
- Powerpoint 2007
- Hand writing recognition

The right click function is very useful and easy to use.

On a regular basis I give presentations and workshops.  There is a need to switch from Powerpoint to some other program and back.  This must be done through ALT-TAB.

REQ: ALT-TAB FUNCTION
2-clickable areas. Mouse click on one area (preferably in the same form as right click) toggles ALT-TAB (with alt continued to be pressed), clicking more on this are triggers an TAB.  Clicking on the other area releases the TAB.
or,
3-clickable ares. Same as above, but with the 3th area providing SHIFT-TAB.

To make it really nice. A check mark will turn the ALT into Windows-key.


Kind regards

Stefan van Aalst

Hi Stefan,
Thanks for the invaluable feedback!
I have already successfully implemented the customizable toggles which triggers when the user 'click's outside the screen area.
The current options are,
  • Mouse Click - Right Click , Double Click
  • Keyboard Presses - 3 key combinations (e.g. ALT+TAB and CTRL+C)
  • Launching Files/Applications - any files can be launched (movie files,JPEG, EXE, batch files, custom made applications)

I have just tested the application with the ALT+TAB and it works. However, currently I have not added a hold feature. I will try to do this feature, as my current priority is the ease of use. Smiley

The user interface now is abit messy and have some bugs. This is due to the complexity of the user settings required. Once I am satisfied with this, I will release it for testing.


Boonjin
Can you make the Wiimote Keys programable too?

Ben,
Since the application already supports programmable settings, I think it won't be difficult to add this feature. I might add this in the next version.

Thanks for all your suggestions!

Boon Jin,

Unlike you, I'm a Sunday programmer.  Last night I managed to get working the functionality I had in my mind in Excel using VBA.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    'triggering ALT-SHIFT-TAB and keep ALT pressed

    keybd_event &H12, 0, 0, 0
    keybd_event 16, 1, 0, 0
    keybd_event &H9, 1, 0, 0
    'Strangly SHIFT must be released seperately otherwise it continues to be pressed
    keybd_event 16, 0, 2, 0
    DoEvents
End Sub

Private Sub CommandButton3_Click()
    'triggering ALT-TAB and keep ALT pressed
    keybd_event &H12, 0, 0, 0
    keybd_event &H9, 1, 0, 0
    DoEvents
End Sub

Private Sub CommandButton4_Click()
    'release of the TAB
    keybd_event &H12, 0, &H2, 0
    DoEvents
End Sub


It does what it needs to be done; ALT-TAB'ing where ever you want and if you go a bit too far, because the release of ALT is a separate button ALT-SHIFT-TAB can be used as well. Although I find it a bit slow.

It is excellent. you done a great job to improve the Wiimote Whiteboard.
But when I use evernote evernote.com, to draw  a line and then start another line, it links back to the original one.
evernote is a freeware for note taking, including text recognition and some other functions that I use a lot in my tablet PC. but it seems it doesn't work with Wiimote Whiteboard. could you help to figure out how can I make it work properly?
Thanks so much

Hi eSephiroth,
I will try out the evernote software and test.

Btw, did you try using the Wiimote Smooth Board 0.1

Wiimote Smooth Board 0.1 is actually a newer version. Smiley

I have just installed Evernote. Where is the option to draw the line?

Thanks

Hm...I cant seem to recreate your problem.
I can draw lines in the 'shape' mode and also normal drawing mode.
Is there any specific line drawing mode you are using?

I have tested Evernote 3.0.0.625 with both Wiimote Smooth Board 0.1 and Wiimote Whiteboard with smoothing.

Run Windows update, select 'Custom' update. Once it has finished scanning make sure you have selected all updates inlcuding optional & hardware.

Maybe an older version of XP or C++?

Do you have an extra wiimote? It works well here especially if both wiimotes are placed at the same side but at different angles. Smiley

Only 1 (don't actually own a Nitendo Wii). My natural whiteboard style never has a problem with only 1 Wiimote. I know primary teachers have more of a problem as students use the whiteboard more and they tend to block the wiimote.

I will try to borrow one of a friend to test but may take a few days.
