this is some of my code

void setup(){
  delay(3000);
  ctrlcombo("KEY_A");
}

void ctrlcombo(char* ctrlkey){
  Keyboard.set_modifier(MODIFIERKEY_CTRL);
  Keyboard.set_key1(ctrlkey);
  Keyboard.send_now();
  Keyboard.set_modifier(0);
  Keyboard.set_key1(0);
  Keyboard.send_now();
}

I get this error "invalid conversion from 'char*' to 'uint8_t'" can any one help me?

Keyboard.set_key1(ctrlkey);

It doesn't like that line i'm assuming. You are sending it a char value when it wants one of it's defined key codes KEY_A not "KEY_A"

KEY_A is like a defined constant. So it doesn't need quotes. you may have to change the input type of your function as well so it's not expecting a CHAR array and you giving it something different.

Try:

void setup(){
delay(3000);
ctrlcombo(KEY_A);
}

void ctrlcombo(uint8_t ctrlkey){
Keyboard.set_modifier(MODIFIERKEY_CTRL);
Keyboard.set_key1(ctrlkey);
Keyboard.send_now();
Keyboard.set_modifier(0);
Keyboard.set_key1(0);
Keyboard.send_now();
}

Or read up a lil at http://www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_keyboard.html

I can't test because I'm at work. Speaking of which I got a meeting in 5 min.

Yeah I needed to remove the quotes. It would not recognize uint8_t. But it works with char not char* so this works now.

void setup(){
delay(3000);
ctrlcombo(KEY_A);
}

void ctrlcombo(char ctrlkey){
Keyboard.set_modifier(MODIFIERKEY_CTRL);
Keyboard.set_key1(ctrlkey);
Keyboard.send_now();
Keyboard.set_modifier(0);
Keyboard.set_key1(0);
Keyboard.send_now();
}

haha, I was at school when I posted this topic, exams mean that teacher is a bit to busy to help me with this at the moment.

Thanks for your help.
