Keyboard Editor

 
I am trying to map the function keys on the US 101 keyboard to send a value that our application recognizes. Do you support Escape key sequences?
I for example I need to map the F1 key to send the following value:
OP
The F6 key to send the following value:
17~
I do not have the hex values of these escape values.
Thanks. tjb

Re: Keyboard Editor

 
The keyboard editor doesn't support Escape sequences. You can do it in the resource file of the X application you are using.

For example, you can see the /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm file on the Linux. The file has VT100 translation entry for special key mappings. If required, you can override the translation for your specific needs and redefine it in your $HOME/.Xdefaults file.

For more information, please see the man page of the X application you are using.
