Are the key macros that you're using at the system level or application level? You could push down a Velocity configuration from Avalanche if that is the application that you're using. Alternatively it sounds like you may benefit from using StageNow. Avalanche is severely lacking in it's ability to configure Zebra Android devices (and any Android devices for that matter...) so I've found that I have to leverage StageNow to configure a lot of system level settings. You have the option of generating 1D or 2D barcodes from the configuration profiles that you build.
We have some MC9200s with Windows. With those, we configure the key macros in the wavelink software on my laptop and then push the config to the handheld with the handheld docked. We do not install Avalanch on the handhelds...The only thing we have is the terminal emulation client.
I do have StageNow. I was using that for a few of the TC70s we have. I didn't know you could configure key macros in that....or are you talking about pushing a config file to the handheld via stagenow?
You posted this under the Avalanche section of the support forum so I assumed you had Avalanche. You can configure just about anything with StageNow, although it's more for remapping the limited physical keys on the device and not for creating key macros of the virtual keys. What is the need for key macros on the android devices in the first place? If you're using Terminal Emulation you'd potentially be better off using the Velocity client and then having on screen buttons or custom keypads perform the key presses that you're looking to perform.
The Android MC92N0 is unfortunately kind of a frankenstein device in that it has a full sized keypad with an operating system that is expecting most of your input to be from the touch screen.
First of all, thank you for the replies...We are kind of in a bind with this...
Let me first add that this company is very behind the times with handheld technology and works with the bare minimum on a lot of things...For example, we had MC9060s in our environment up until a couple months ago.
I posted under Avalanche because we were trying to use Configurator for this and I was pretty sure that was an Avalanche tool. With the TC70s, I had it setup to where you would just scan a barcode and it would pull all the configs for the terminal client down to the device and off you go. With these MC9290s, we need them to have 1D scanners and those can't scan QR Codes....
Key Macros...We run 2 environments that both touch Oracle. One of the environments is a lot older and requires some key macros. Here is a screen shot of the macros we use on the MC9590s, MC9190s and hopefully the MC9290s...
These are all set in the Emulation Parameters in the Wavelink Production Configuration tool.
The MC9290 keyboard is virtually the same as the MC9190 so I don't see what it wouldn't work...
Sure the keyboards and form factors are virtually the same but the operating systems are completely different. Are you using the Android TE client or the Velocity client for Terminal Emulation on the new devices? The configuration options within the Android TE client are pretty limited from what I remember but you should be able to set key macros within Velocity.
I am using just the Wavelink TE for Android...No Velocity.
I am able to manually enter all the macros and other settings I need to enter into the client. I just need a way to quickly and easily replicate those settings and macros on other handhelds.
