Key mapping script file for UI Toolkit

WTSupported in traditional Synergy on Windows


USupported on UNIX
VSupported on OpenVMS

The DTKKEYCTLFIL environment variable defines the full path and filename of the UI Toolkit key mapping script file.


The full path and filename, including extension, of the UI Toolkit key mapping script file. This must be a valid path and filename for the OPEN command.


The DTKKEYCTLFIL environment variable enables you to name the key mapping script file and put it in a directory of your choosing. If this environment variable is not set, UI Toolkit looks for a key mapping script file named keymap.ctl in the working directory. If Toolkit doesn’t find keymap.ctl there, Toolkit looks for this file in the directory specified by WND. If Toolkit can’t find a key mapping script file, the only shortcuts supported by scripts are F1 through F63.

Setting location

The environment. On Windows, this environment variable can also be set in the [synergy], [dbr], or [myprog] section of synergy.ini or synuser.ini (where myprog is the .dbr file used to compile the script).
