I have now been trying to remap CapsLock to $. But without luck.

I have tried the following Binary code.

00000000 00000000
02000000 05003A00

When I now click the CapsLock it comes out with a 4 sign, which is the 0500 code in the binary.

I can't seems to find the binary code for $.

Does anyone here knows the code for $? This would really make it faster for me to write PHP, as I never use the CapsLock for that.

Thanks in advanced.

The binary code for $ is 00100100. Do you want the hex code? – Kruug Jan 23 '13 at 22:19
Can't you just use something like SharpKeys? – Karan Jan 23 '13 at 22:49
@Kruug actually, I think I need the hex yes please. – Marko Livendo Jan 24 '13 at 7:32
@Karan I used SharpKeys to do it, when I type alt gr + 4 then it comes out with unknown value. – Marko Livendo Jan 24 '13 at 7:32

Instead of 0500 you should put 0005

  • 00000000 Header: Version. Set all to zeroes
  • 00000000 Flags. Set all to zeroes
  • 02000000 Number of entries
  • 00053A00 to remove CapsLock, first four digits are for new key, others are for CapsLock.
  • 00000000 Null Terminator
