Keyboard States

This window is displayed when you add or edit a Keyboard State from the Keyboard States tab. It allows you to define which buttons will be displayed on the POS for specific states, for example adding an item to a new transaction, modifying an item, and so on.

Keyboard State

This is the keyboard state that needs to be modified. When you select a keyboard state, the system will display the buttons currently available for that state. You can only select from the available keyboard states. You cannot create your own. If you are modifying a new keyboard state, the system will display the default buttons for that state.

State Buttons

There are twelve buttons displayed that represent the buttons available on the POS. To set the function of a button, click on it and then select the appropriate option from Button Function.
