    Solved Hotkey Plugin API

    If you want to make a plugin that tries to provide new hotkeys for TeamSpeak you'll have to implement your own hotkey settings dialog and try to reimplement every hotkey action using the Plugin SDK functions. And even if you go through all that, you'll only be able to provide a small subset of the all the hotkey actions supported by TeamSpeak.

    Therefore I suggest a new API to be added to the Plugin SDK that communicates to TeamSpeak when a custom hotkey provided by a plugin is pressed. TeamSpeak can respond to this hotkey like any other keyboard input so that you can configure these hotkeys from the same hotkey settings dialog. And with that we'll be able to support all the hotkey actions supported by TeamSpeak without writing any extra code.

    I'm the creator of the Logitech G-Key plugin and I'd love to keep supporting it, but the current situation is an unmaintainable mess due to all the different hotkey actions that need to be reimplemented.

    Thumbs up

    Thumps up, please update the API so Armada can continue to develop hos plugins.

    having a dedicated push to talk button on my logitech devices is a must for me to continue using teamspeak.

    I think it's a good idea personally.
    With all those input devices populating the PC area nowadays, not only logitech stuff would benefit.
    Alone in my living room there's several MIDI input devices and friends have all kinds of joysticks coming up with the renewed interest in flight sims...
    Plus, I'm contemplating getting a footswitch, so... the potential applications are broad.

    I have to agree, i am using the OP's original G-Key plugin as i cannot have a keyboard input tied up as a push to talk key. having the dedicated PPT key is necessary for my continued use of TS3.

    I 3rd this, with an addition. If you won't fix the API so he can continue this, do us all a bloody favor and put the support in that you promised many years ago.

    Plugins can now provide hotkey input to the client using the new Plugin SDK features in Client 3.1.1 with API 22 and newer.
