Arduino Bluetooth Keypad Utilities: Keypad Events UWP Library

An event driven Phone Keypad library. Includes KeyDown, KeyUp and KeyHoldling events to which event handlers can be attached in apps that use this library. Also includes a mechanism to fire those events from keypad scanning software. No hardware specific code though. These events mirror those events in the previous blog for the Arduino Keypad Event Scanning Sketch.  The next blog hooks the two up.

 

This blog demonstrates exemplary code for for implementing event table mechanisms for custom events, particularly if the events are driven by custom hardware.

Building it wasn’t too difficult.  This means I can now use my Surface 2 on long journeys without need to access main power to charge it. Cost about $A40 apart from the Surface and Power Bank.
