**What are you trying to achieve?: numpad input while eyetracker is configured (SR Research, but configuring the other eyetrackers seem to do the same)
I am trying to create an experiment that requires participants to give keyboard input to a stimuli presented in a 3x3 grid - as such the numpad would be ideal. Furthermore I will be using an eyetracker to track gaze during the experiment. However configuring an eyetracker in ‘Properties’ seem to force NumLock off, independent of the keyboard button being pressed, such that input ‘left’ rather than ‘num_4’, ‘right’ rather than ‘num_6’ etc is registered once an eyetracker is configured. That would be fine, but in this case the middle numpad (num_5) will not work, as it doesn’t have a secondary function. Is there any way around this behavior?
I am guessing that there is a reason for this behavior, but I don’t know what it is.
Is there any way to assign an input to num_5 while NumLock is off, or alternatively, for configuring an eyetracker to not force NumLock to the off setting?
Pressing NumLock during the experiment has no effect. De-configruing the eye tracker (changing dropdown menu to ‘None’) will restore normal numpad function.
