Function Keys running Visual Logic

Button Click Logic can be used to assign Visual Logic functions to keyboard Functions keys.

On Button Click Visual Logic is called by Simul8 when SHIFT Function Keys (e.g. SHIFT F3) are pressed.

Plain function keys cannot be used because many are already defined by windows standards to have key purposes like SAVE AS and HELP.

The Global Data Item BUTTON (if it is of type TEXT) is assigned to “SFn” where n is the number of the Function key, hence “SF3” for the F3 key, and “SF4” for the F4 key when your On Button Click Visual Logic is called.

The Function key is activated by holding Shift and then pressing the Function key.
