How-to Video

This short video will show you how simple it is to use an Enterpad to trigger AutoHotkey scripts. For example, if you would like to set the Enterpad key number eight to launch the Google website, follow these three easy steps:

Integration Resources

Instead of having to create an AutoHotkey file from scratch to put your scripts and Enterpad code into, we created a template for you. You can add your scripts directly to the template. Our approach was to keep the template simple to let you easily understand how everything works. You always have the option of adding more sophisticated code to it should you need it.

The template is a set of three files to be placed in the same folder:

The file Enterpad.ahk is where you input your scripts. By running this AutoHotkey file you will be able to trigger your scripts with the Enterpad. The files EPReport.ahk and Enterpad.dll manage the Enterpad. You could modify commented sections of the 'EPReport.ahk' file should you need to add session notification code and/or add custom cleanup code on script exit.

We use AutoHotkey (Unicode installation) to develop and maintain our scripts. You can download the latest version from the AutoHotkey official website: https://autohotkey.com/ (Click the blue "Download" button near the top-right of the webpage).

Creating an overlay can be time consuming. Not with the Enterpad. We create templates to be used with your favorite drawing software. The following templates will allow you to get up to speed as quickly as possible:

† At the beginning, we suggest that you use a numbered template. One of the very useful Enterpad/AHK combo features is the ability to add/modify macros on the fly. Instantly knowing the number of the macro you want to edit is a must.

This slide show provides some examples of creative template designs.
