Touch Screen Keyboard (Order Entry)
The touch screen keyboard is a QWERTY keyboard with large buttons designed for touch screen use. All letters display as capitalized on the keyboard even though they will not necessarily appear that way when typing words.
This keyboard shows up on the screen if the Show Touch Screen Keyboard check box is checked in Workstation Setup. The name of the field being accessed is displayed in the title bar of the keyboard to remind the user which information is requested.
Touch or click a field that requires data entry to access the Touch Screen Keyboard.
Cap CAP cap - On the left side of the keyboard, there is a Caps Lock button. This displays in three ways and the resulting type will be formatted in three ways depending on how the button displays. Pressing the button will switch between the three different capitalization modes: Cap, CAP, and cap.
Cap will capitalize the beginning letter of each word automatically. This mode is useful because the shift key is not used to capitalize words
CAP will capitalize every letter typed. All letters typed will be in upper case.
cap will not capitalize any letter. All letters typed will be in lower case.
Shift - Pressing the shift key turns the key yellow to signify that the next letter type will be effected. The next key pressed after shift will be in upper case if all lower case is being typed, and in lower case if all upper case is being typed. Shift will allow the user to change the expected case of any letter regardless of how the Caps Lock key is set.
Clear - This button clears all characters from the display field and returns the cursor to the first character position.
Cut, Copy, Paste - These keys act as expected by cutting, copying, and pasting content from one field to another.
Arrow Keys - There are two sets of large green arrow keys. The vertical arrow keys which point to the top and bottom of the screen move the focus to the next or previous field respectively. The newly highlighted field name is displayed in the new keyboard that appears.
Backspace - Strike a mis-keyed letter using the backspace key.
OK - Once the information has been successfully keyed in, touch or click the OK key to accept the information and advance to the next field to be keyed in.
Cancel - Cancels the input and removes the keyboard from the screen. The screen focus is returned to the field being edited. Touch or click the field again to bring up the keyboard again.
