Power Point wireless presenter input for form RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to use power point wireless presenter to click my form button. So far I tested presenter keys are working same as like keyboard arrow keys. But if I use the below key binding program its not working.

    Public Class Form1
        Protected Overrides Function ProcessCmdKey(ByRef msg As Message, ByVal keyData As Keys) As Boolean
            'detect up arrow key
            If keyData = Keys.Up Then
                Return True
            End If
            Return MyBase.ProcessCmdKey(msg, keyData)
        End Function
        Public Sub Button2_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
            MsgBox("Proceed Button Clicked")
        End Sub
    End Class

    Kindly Help with this.

  • Is your form focused (active) when you press the key?

  • Well you've had several threads about this issue. How do you believe a Form would receive a keydown or keyup event if you were using some wireless device with PowerPoint?

  • Hi,

    I have found a method to interact with your application via wireless Presenter. With this method, desktop application isn't depended on any focused button.


    OverridesFunctionProcessCmdKey(ByRefmsg AsMessage, ByValkeyData AsKeys) AsBoolean


    IfkeyData = Keys.PageDown Then


    "Call your function here"


    ElseIfkeyData = Keys.PageUp Then


    "Call your function here"         



    ReturnMyBase.ProcessCmdKey(msg, keyData)
