Touchpad and Keyboard for Irule Builder

Is there anyway to create a touchpad using the mouse commands in MCE controller? The one thing I would really like to have in irule is a touchpad/mouse and a keyboard so I can interact with a computer effectively. This would be for a home theater system.

  • There are MCE Devices available in iRule. They have commands for Cursor Right, Cursor Left, Cursor Right, etc. You would have to enable Gestures on your panel, and then drag the desired command to the desired gesture.

    There is also a Gesture Pad in the Images tab under Common.

    The MCE Device I downloaded also has all the letters and numbers listed as commands, so you could probably build your own keyboard. You would probably have to start with a blank button, add text to it, and then assign the MCE command. You would also have to arrange the buttons on the page to create the keyboard. A fair amount of work, but it could be done.

    That sounds like what we did for the Roku 3, see below.
