Keyboard Wars!

ADB, Keyboards & TypingBattle

One of the most obvious change to the Mac SE and the Mac // has been the redesign of the keyboard and mouse interface. There are no longer 2 separate interfaces for the mouse and the keyboard, each of which could handle only 1 device. Instead the mouse and keyboards are connected through the new Apple Desktop Bus (or ADB). All of Apple’s new computers (Mac SE, Mac //, Apple //gs) use ADB. This interface allows multiple ADB devices to be connected to the computer at the same time. Thus a Mac SE could have 2 keyboards, a mouse and a third-party ADB device (perhaps a graphics tablet) all connected to the computer at the same time. While most programs will recognize a key being pressed no matter what keyboard (an A is always an A), a program can be written that recognizes the difference between keyboards and acts accordingly. This article will expand on various ideas involving the ADB, the new keyboards, and the sample program. The sample program that is provided is TypingBattle, a multiple keyboard typing contest.

Apple Desktop Bus

The Apple Desktop Bus is a low-speed input-only interface for the new computers from Apple. The Mac SE and the //gs have a single ADB port while the Mac // has two ports. Each ADB device (except for the Mouse which must be the last item on a ADB line) is a pass through device, similar to the SCSI interface. The first ADB keyboard is plugged into the computer’s ADB port, the next ADB keyboard is plugged into the previous keyboard (or a second computer port if there is one). Logically up to 16 ADB devices can be connected to a single Computer. In practice, however, the signal is not powerful enough to go through that many devices. Depending on what style of keyboard is being used, currently 3-5 keyboards and a mouse is the maximum configuration.

ADB devices communicate with the computer using the ADB Manager and special ADB commands. Normally ADB communication is the domain of the ADB device drivers. The Macintosh Start Manager finds all the ADB devices connected to the computer and places that info into an ADB device table. It then initializes any ADB device drivers in the System file. These drivers (stored as ‘ADBS’ resources) will then handle any ADB communication.

The Mac // and Mac SE System Files contain two standard ADB device drivers, the mouse driver and the universal keyboard driver. The mouse driver handles all mouse movements. It also handles all clicking of the mouse button and issues standard MouseDown and MouseUp events to the Event manager. While two mice can be connected to the Mac //, the mouse driver was not designed to be able to differentiate between mice or pass this information over to the application. No information is passed in the MouseUp or MouseDown event record to explain which Mouse was clicked. Still, for a bit of amusement, connect to two mice to the Mac // and give them to two different people. The cursor will move with each move of either mouse, causing much frustration.

Fig. 1 Two keyboards battle for typing supremacy

The ADB universal keyboard driver handles any keys being pressed or released on an ADB keyboard. It generates a KeyDown or a KeyUp event for the Event Manager. However unlike the mouse driver, the keyboard driver passes along information explaining, not only what key was pressed, but on which keyboard. Prior to the ADB, the Message field of a KeyDown/KeyUp Event record contained the ASCII Character in the first byte and the Virtual Key Code in the second byte. With ADB, the Message field’s first and second bytes are the same, while the third bye contains the ADB address of the keyboard that was used. This information is the basis of the sample program, TypingBattle. Two global byte variables are now associated with the ADB Manager; KbdLast, the ADB address of the last keyboard used and KbdType, the Keyboard type of the last keyboard used.

While the sample program only uses the Event record for information about the multiple keyboards, the ADB manager can be accessed directly. The CountADB function returns the total number of ADB devices connected to the computer. GetIndADB (based on the device count from 1 to CountADB number) and GetADBInfo (based on the ADB address of a device) return information about the Device Type, ADB address, service routine address and data area address. Other ADB Manager calls (ADBReInit, ADBOp and SetADBInfo) should not be used directly by an application. Any non-keyboard or non-mouse type of ADB interface would use these commands in it’s own ADB device driver.

The usage of the ADB has yet to be fully recognized. For a hardware developer, designing an ADB device has several advantages. For example, the majority of the current graphics tablets available for the Mac connect to the serial ports, requiring special software drivers (which do not always work with all software packages) and the loss of that serial port for other uses. An ADB graphic tablet that emulates an ADB mouse would work without any special software drivers or loss of port. For the same reasons, an ADB Piano Keyboard would easily interface into all existing Music Packages.

Keyboards

There are currently 3 ADB keyboards that can be used on the Mac SE & Mac //. The standard ADB Keyboard is essentially a duplicate of the older non-ADB MacPlus keyboard. It has a standard keyboard layout with cursor keys and a Numeric Keypad. Programs that were written to use the MacPlus cursor keys will function identically on the standard ADB Keyboard.

Most people do not realize the second ADB keyboard will work on the Mac SE & Mac //. The Apple //gs uses the ADB interface. It uses the same Mouse as the Mac SE & Mac //. However the //gs has it’s own ADB keyboard. This keyboard is similar in layout to the standard ADB keyboard, except slightly smaller. Remember that any ADB computer can work with any ADB device. While only a large lab would have both the Macintosh and //gs, it is sometime convenient to know that in a rush, either computer can use the other keyboard.

The third ADB keyboard is the Extended ADB Keyboard (sometimes still referred to by it’s development code name “Saratoga”). It has all the features of the standard ADB Keyboard plus additional keys. These additional keys include 15 Function keys, a Control Key, and 6 Special purpose keys.

The 15 Function key, called F1 through F15, are across the top of the keyboard. The first four function keys, F1, F2, F3 and F4, are designed to be assigned the functions Undo, Cut, Copy and Paste. These functions are printed next to each key on the keyboard. The Virtual Key Codes (ie. the third Byte of the Longint passed in the Event field of the event record for keyboard events) of these keys are $7A, $78, $63 and $76. New programs should recognize these Virtual Key Codes, and implement the functions accordingly. According to Apple’s Guidelines, the F5 thought F15 keys are intended to be defined by the user, not by the Application. Utilities like QuickKeys by CE Software or Apple’s promised MacroMaker allow the user to redefine any key to a specific action. Still, if the developer wishes to do so, a program could use these keys for it’s own purpose.

The Control key was added for compatibility with applications that communicate with another operating systems (ie. terminal packages). Pressing the Control key sets bit 12 of the modifier field of the event record for keyboard events. Since the Macintosh OS does not use the concept of Control characters, except for a communication application, this key should not be used by Macintosh applications.

The other 6 Special Keys are intended to give the user greater control of his application. Each application must handle each special key in it’s own way. The following are the Keys, their Virtual Key Codes and general guidelines for usage.

The Home key ($73) moves the user to the home position in the application. In a word processor, this key may move the scroll bar to the top of the document. In a database, this may move the display to the first field or the first record. The End key ($77) moves the user to the end position in the application. In a word processor, this key may move the scroll bar to the bottom of the document. The Page Up key ($74) and Page Down Key ($79) moves the user to the next page (up or down) in the application. In a word processor, these keys would be equivalent to clicking in the page up (or down) region of the vertical scroll bar. In a database, these keys may move the user to the previous or next record. According to Apple Guidelines, the Home, End, Page Up and Page Down keys should not effect the actual position of the current insertion point.

The Help key ($72) allows the user to request help from the program. A good usage of this key would be invoke the About menu (or Help menu, if one exists). The Forward Delete, or Fwd Del, key ($75) performs similar to the Backspace key. In a word processor, when the Backspace key is pressed, a character before the current insertion point is deleted. Using the Forward Delete key in the same situation, a character after the current insertion point should be deleted. Use this key carefully. It is a bad idea to allow the user to delete something he can not see (for example, in a database, delete the next unseen record).

TypingBattle

TypingBattle is a sample program designed to show how to handle more than one keyboard. It also implements the special keys of the Apple Extended Keyboard. The game is a simple typing speed contest. First the program prompts each user to type his name from his keyboard. This tells the application the number of players, the name of each player and the ADB address of each player’s keyboard. To start a round, each player must press the return key (so that no one is surprised). Roughly three seconds later, a random typing Sample is shown. The first player to correctly type it (including correct punctuation and case), and then press return, wins the round. The player can backspace over any mistakes, up until the time he presses return. Then, his line is judged for correctness. The round continues until a winner finishes or everyone has entered a mistake. The users can use the mouse to select a new round or start a new configuration. The About Menu or the Help Key will display the About Box.

Last Comments

• The program uses MultiLine, a simple Edit unit. Text Edit was not designed to have multiple edit fields open at the same time.

• Modifying the Resource source file or ResEdit can be used to add additional typing Samples.

• Whenever connecting new ADB devices, always power down the computer. A simple reset is not enough for the system to recognizes when new ADB device have been connected or detached.

• In the food for thought area, the sample program show how to use multiple keyboards with a single screen. What about multiple keyboards and multiple screens? The ADB working together with the Mac // multiple Video cards would give a true multiuser interface to the Mac. For fun, a MazeWar’s type of game would be simple to do. On the serious side, a database package that handled multiple screens/keyboards would have it’s advantages. The hardware would be much cheaper than setting up multiple Mac’s over Appletalk, while the performance might even increase (no time spent communicating between computers). Any takers?
