New USB mice and keyboard support for IyonixBy Chris Williams. Published: 24th Feb 2004, 15:24:31 | Permalink | Printable
Improved HID drivers enables scroll wheel, finallyDeveloper X-Ample Technology has today announced the release of its new USB interface drivers for mice, keyboards and other HID class devices.
The new drivers will enable Iyonix users to, reportedly for the first time, use the scroll wheel in mice and also assign customisable actions and commands to 'special' keys and buttons on modern keyboards and mice. XAT's !HID software will also allow multiple keyboards and mice to be used.
"Finally the mouse's scroll wheel can be used in any window that supports vertical scrolling," XAT's Paul Reuvers explained. "It even works with some badly behaving programs, such as !Edit, Impression and Eureka. Different scrolling methods can be configured for different applications."
!HID is, incidentally, shareware.
