10.4: Activate Dashboard via ANY key
Authored by: Alpha Centauri on Jul 14, '05 09:01:15PM
Since reading this hint, I've had Dashboard activating with the function key. However, this has taken away my possibility of using fn-backspace for forward delete, which I had gotten accustomed to. Actually I preferred Dashboard to activate using the only key I absolutely never ever use: the one right below escape (can't type the symbol any more, it activates Dashboard...). So after some hours of searching around for the right values to enter as described in the hint, I've finally found out, how to get these. I downloaded this program: http://www.prefab.com/uibrowser/ and followed the steps explained here at the end of the page ("How do I create scripts to send keyboard shortcuts?") in order to get the right keystroke value. Then I simply followed the hint using the key code I got from UI Browser.
