[DMCForum] Re: BTTF Time Circuit program



 
 
Jon,
 
You can press the * key initially or at any time to  clear the current 
entry...
 
I made it with the on screen key board so it would be easier to input data  
with the touch screen in my car.  I'll see about keypad data entry  
capability...

Very cool, Dave.

It looks like you have it checking to  make sure that the times entered 
don't exceed the sensible field limits  (i.e. hours from 00-23, minutes 
from 00-59), but this actually causes some  hiccups:  When you go to 
enter in the times the first time, there is  no way to clear out the old 
times other than to type the new time  in.  This usually results in a 
"beep" on the first keypress (for  exceeding the number limit of the 
field) and then a clearing of the field  so you can start over.  Is this 
intentional?  It's a little  surprising the first time it happens.

How does the "real" time machine  handle this?  I would imagine that it 
doesn't have any limit checking  for the input, assuming that the 
operator would know that there is no time  25:62, for instance...

Also, what about allowing keypress inputs from  the numpad, instead of 
just the mouse?  Maybe you'd click the field  to drop down the on-screen 
numpad, as it already is, and then it would  accept keypresses from the 
numpad and fire off the appropriate buttonPress  events based on the keys 
pressed.

Great work, by the  way!

Regards,
Jon Heese
