Sending USB Keyboard Input via UDP...

Tue May 10, 2011 7:55 pm


I would like to enter text via a USB Keyboard and when the 'enter' button is hit, the previously typed 'keystrokes' are tranmitted via UDP. The concept is the user can enter there "email address" and it is transmitted via UDP to a server...

Any thoughts?

Yes, you have to do some custom scripting to get this done. I'm not sure if you're only asking if it's possible.

This isn't technically hard. You can receive text input and store it an a string, and when you see the enter key, then you would send the stored text to whatever destination.

You probably would also want to echo the string back to the screen for the customer, and also put in some logic that allowed you to use a backspace or delete key to correct what's being typed.
