How to fix the double keystroke issue problem with a driver
I've pp[<-see?]urchased a nice Kensignton Ci70 keyboard that does a good job as the keys are laptop-style, but every now and then it will send a double stroke to the machine, which has already sent me into a debugging session today related to my code having a wrong function name.
I know it is a hardware issue, that by the way, *loads* of laptop users have (type double keystroke problem in G).
A solution in my opinion would be to catch the keyboard signals on the system, and set a threshold of a few miliseconds for a doublee[<-again] keystroke to be ignored.
The keyboard came without any drivers, it got automatically installed by Windows XP.
I know this is a mechanical issue of many laptop keyboards, and it becomes evident with some people that tend to write a lot and quickly. If we can sort a patch to fix this behavior, it'll do a favor to loads of users.
I'm not a driver programmer by the way, and hello all as I'm new here.
Suggestions? It can't be diffficult![<-arghhh]
