Yoga Book: "Pen Mode button" keycode

2016-10-05, 9:04 AM

Hello all!

 

I asked this question on the german community but no success so far.

Maybe here are some developers who can help me or point me to the right direction..

 

I try to replace the lenovopaper launcher (that one that pops up when you press the pen mode button on the halo keyboard).

Now i tired to replace the lenovopaper.exe with my own launcher (c#) but unfortunatly, the lenovopaper.exe is also handling the keypress of this specific "pen mode button"... So my launcher is never launched on key press...

 

No keycode is send when i triy to capture it with an on keydown event or similar in c#.

I can get the keycode of for example Vol Up/down hardware buttons on the side, but none for the pen mode..

 

I think the KbHook.dll is handling this event for the lenovopaper.exe, but i havent found a way to use it in my own application...

 

Does someone here have an idea what i could try?

 

regards

Hi.

 

The Lenovopaper update is broken along with a couple of the other updates dated 28/09. The bios update is fine. That button does not work at all after the update. Unless they have pushed another update out you will have to reset your Book. That was the only way I could get it to work.
