Pros:
This little remote produces standard ASCII commands. I have written a media player which works perfectly with this remote.
label14.Text = "Key = " + e.KeyValue.ToString();
if (e.KeyValue == 13) navigate(); //Enter
if (e.KeyValue == 32 || e.KeyValue == 179) pausePlay(); //pause/play
if (e.KeyValue == 39) { playNext(); listBox1.SelectedIndex--; } //Next
if (e.KeyValue == 37 || e.KeyValue == 177)
{
listBox1.SelectedIndex--;
navigate();
listBox1.SelectedIndex++;
} //Previous
if (e.KeyValue == 71) graphicOffOn();
if (e.KeyValue == 82)
{
if (checkBox1.Checked == false)
{
checkBox1.Checked = true;
return;
}
else checkBox1.Checked = false;
}
if (e.KeyValue == 68) radioButton1.Checked=true;
if (e.KeyValue == 65) radioButton2.Checked = true;
if (e.KeyValue == 67) radioButton3.Checked = true;
if (e.KeyValue == 27) Application.Exit(); //Exit Ap
if (e.KeyValue == 76) selList();
if (e.KeyValue == 73) includeSubs();
if (e.KeyValue == 80) gotoParent();
if (e.KeyValue == 83) nameSave();
if (e.KeyValue == 190) saveToTemp();
if (e.KeyValue == 8) { listBox1.SelectedIndex = 2; navigate(); } //parent
Cons:
The mouse alternative is on by default and does not work that well. Must be turned off for normal commands.
Other:
BTW the CH+ CH- are ASCII 34 "PageDown" and ASCII 33 "Page Up".
Bottomline:
Best remote for the price I have ever tested.
