Re: ISIRI 2901 to Unicode map

The whole DDK is documented in msdn. Do a search for 'keyboard DDK"
there and you will find a lot of information. When I am on my develoer
system next week I will look at the DDK itself on our CDs and I will
let you know offlist what I found. The sample code isn't online.

From what I can tell it is similar to older systems where I once wrote
a keyboard driver that read in mappings to different character sets and
macros. Back then I used a flat txt file to store the key mapping, it
looked similar to the Unicode character description. I could imagine a
XML file with key tags to do the same today, assigning keys to codes
with all the shift levels and other key status information.


Take a look at KbFilter_ServiceCallback then, which allows you to
delete, transform, or insert data.

I am personally interested in this hook for test automation to simulate
keyboard import of Unicode characters.
