Map Request Keyword
Parameter and switch to map the button
to a request input (can be undone with
<UnMapButton>). The button name must begin with either a + or a - (to indicate
the press or release of that button) and must be the name of a button on an
installed input device, in other words if used as a parameter this must occur after
parameter[s]. See Input.
Test Mode 10 or the
TimeDX input test can be used to determine button
names. If a button of that name is not found an error will be generated. Multiple
buttons can be mapped to the same input, however one button cannot be mapped to
multiple inputs unless
has been issued. When used as a switch inside an item all mappings occur when the
item is parsed before the display commences. Names with special characters
in them must be quoted and the Unicode
option turned on.
Button names can also be of the form #nnn
if the device name has been prepended with a # when it was specified to
