keyboard commands

PUPPICAD 8 years ago updated by datadeal Sedr 3 years ago 92

I added some commands that use the CTRL key modifier to my application. I want to use CTRL+C for copy selection but it only works if SHIFT key is pressed too.

Every other key command I implemented works even when SHIFT is not pressed.

I can zoom in but want to limit the zoom?

objo wrote at 2013-02-07 20:22:

Currently there is no limit. In the "Inspect" mode, the length of the LookDirection is reduced while keeping the CameraPosition+LookDirection point fixed.
I will add this as a new feature in the issue tracker!

Hey Objo,
Please if you add that feature to limite the camera zoom tell me how to implement it.

If the property is inspectable, a mouse wheel event, or CTRL+, CTRL- event, could be used to limit a requested change...

What Is The Best Brand In Power Banks For Smartphones?

Arthur Arnold 8 years ago updated by datadeal Sedr 3 years ago 98

The popularity of mobile banks right now is increasing day after day. Mobile phones along with other portable pieces of equipment are getting to be an integral part of our everyday life and we really have to confess that we have become totally influenced by them which makes us want them anxiously to last as more as possible. Fortunately, power banks exist to handle this. Power banks are mobile energy source that is very easily transported in a pocket or purse or bag and offers smartphone and tablet users supplemental power when the pieces of equipment are running low on battery.

Nevertheless, you may still find people who do not actually know what power banks are and what’s their usage. The producers or dealers don’t feel the need to show the customers on that required information. Based on the piece of equipment you have, there’s something you should know when we take a look at power banks. Thinking over all these factors, I had the desire to collect details of such guidelines and technicalities and the outcome is this post.

Precisely What Are Power Banks

According to the power banks are designed to keep the electrical power in a Lithium Ion battery and charge our pieces of equipment as required. They’re just an exclusive battery encased in specific covering together with recommended circuitry to control the circulation of electric power. That’s how I can clarify any of them in a non-technical way. Power banks maintain the electric power inside them just like you put in hard earned cash in the bank account and also have a means to charge a unit just like you take out hard earned cash! It is a perfect comparison. Right now, the higher functionality of our devices causes them to be run low on battery power faster, so it is necessary to have an additional gadget which may maintain your power source.

The way to select the best power bank for yourself

The same as with many other devices there are lots of other pointers which can help you select the best power bank. It all depends on your particular need. If you have the habit of having a lot of pieces of equipment during your vacation, you may want to obtain a high capacity power bank. Alternatively, if you’re not having many gadgets you can get a low capacity power bank. Here are some tips as per the major elements –

1. A very important factor you have to be extra careful when buying a power bank may be the capacity. In general words it lets us know just how much charge is incorporated in the power bank or how many times we are able to charge the smart phone. It is calculated in mAh. Only one thing you must understand is that when a power bank is recharging your mobile phone or tablet, a fraction of the electrical power is dropped in transport of power. According to this the genuine total capacity is perhaps 60% of the full capacity of the power bank. For example a power bank with battery full capacity at 2200 mAh has real total capacity in the range 1320mAh up to 1430mAh. And that is for top quality battery, for downgraded battery the losing of power is more so therefore the true capacity would be under 1320 mAh. In the event you decide to invest in a power bank, keep your own usage in your mind. Because our charging necessities are expanding every day, the capacity of power banks grows all together. A few high-capacity power banks may also recharge your laptops or apple ipads.

2. It’s a good idea to determine the number of connectors and also the sort of connectors. It might be much more wise to go for a power bank with built-in cables.

3. We’re buying a power bank because of its transportable type. It’s not so good to carry a power bank bigger than the device you use.

4. It is strongly recommended not to rely upon power banks that provide better total capacity cheaper. Most of them make use of restored battery and may not keep working long. Generally select a power bank produced by a popular manufacturer. The purchase price might be a bit larger, although you can be certain that the device will be more secured and the general performance shall be according to the specs.

5. Ensure that your power bank has added characteristics to secure the piece of equipment.

6. It’s also a good idea to check the unit certification. In this way it is certain that the power bank follows all of the necessary criteria for this type of devices.
