Telix v3.11 Mouse System Page 1

1.0 Introduction

1.1 Program Description

The Telix v3.11 Mouse System is a comprehensive
keyboard supplementer for use with Telix v3.11 from
Exis Inc. Some of it's features include:

- Full menu of all Telix v3.11 ALT commands.

- Simulation of almost all useful keys so that
your mouse may be used whether you are
changing the screen colours, editing a
dialling entry or scrolling through some
text.

- On-Line help available directly from the main
mouse menu.

- It's much more than a front end for Telix
functions. It's a useable and intuitive
program making for quick and easy Telix
control.

1.2 Machine Requirements

To use TMS your machine must meet the requirements for
Telix itself, and also the machine must have an
operational MicroSoft Mouse (or Compatible), an
installed mouse driver and approximately 15K free RAM
to hold TMS (TMS is actually a Terminate Stay Resident
program).

This means must have a total of at least 185K free RAM
and a MicroSoft mouse or compatible (with the driver
installed through either MOUSE.COM or MOUSE.SYS in your
CONFIG.SYS file) to run TMS under Telix v3.11.

1.3 TMS Files

The TMS package includes eleven files. The functions
of each file is described in the TLX311M3.ME file,
which accompanies this archive.

Note : Thanks to Ken Mason for providing many of
the support files used in TMS

2.0 Setting Up

2.1 Where to Use TMS

TMS is designed only for use with Telix v3.11.
Operation with most other packages (including DOS) is
not recommended. Most likely, the mouse will emulate a
carriage return if any button (or both) are pressed,
and movement will emulate the four cursor control
buttons, but this may vary depending on the
application. As a general rule install TMS before
using Telix and uninstall it when you exit back to DOS.
(The batch file TLX.BAT is included to make this as
easy as possible.)

2.2 Installing/Uninstalling TMS

TMS is installed simply by typing MENU TLX311M3. The
message 'Menu Installed' will be returned indicating
successful installation.

TMS is disabled by typing MENU OFF. A message will
indicate keyboard emulation off. Note that the menu is
not actually removed from memory, the included PC
Magazine utilities INSTALL.COM and REMOVE.COM
accomplish this.

2.3 QuickDial Function

Telix v3.11 has a function called QuickDial whereby you
need only enter the numbers of entries in the dialling
directory to call them. Since it takes so little time
to dial from the dialling directory itself, TMS assumes
that this function has been turned off. Operating TMS
with this function active will work, though you will be
missing out on some nice features of TMS.

2.4 Use With Other Mouse Software

If you run an editor which makes use of the mouse, or
shell to DOS and run an application which makes use of
the mouse, TMS will not be operational when you return
to Telix. To fix this problem, create a batch file
which first turns off TMS, then calls the external
application, then turns TMS back on. Use this method
for your editor should it use the mouse, and any other
mouse programs you might use under Telix in the DOS
shell.




Telix v3.11 Mouse System Page 3

2.5 Button Conventions

The left and right buttons are used to call up menus
and/or operate functions. Both buttons always emulates
ENTER or abort. Cursor movement always emulates the
cursor keys, except during the Telix ReDial function,
in which they are disabled so that an accidental mouse
movement won't abort the ReDial function.

2.6 3-Button Mice

The programming kit used to produce this package is
produced by MicroSoft, and since MicroSoft sells only 2
button mice it included support for 2 button mice only.

3-button LogiTech and PC Mice work fine though; the
third button simply has no effect on the program.

2.7 Mouse Menu Colours

I chose the colours presently used in the mouse menus
hoping that they would acceptable to all, but if you do
not like them you can easily have them changed by
registering (if you have not already), and dropping my
a line or letter stating what colours you would like.
I would be happy to send you a customized copy with
those colours. Due to the nature of the language used
to program TMS they cannot be changed directly from
within the program, nor as a run-time option. I have
included only two colour schemes in this archive, one
for colour monitors and one for monochrome users. Keep
in mind that if a hacker wishes to break into the program
and put purple dots all over the menus, he/she is welcome
to do so, as long as the altered copy is not released
to the public.

2.8 EGA & VGA video modes

Telix v3.11 supports EGA 43 and VGA 50 line modes. But
to allow for compatibility with all systems Telix v3.11
and TMS menus use only the first 25 lines of the
screen. Note that TMS works just fine with 43 (which I
myself use) and 50 line modes, but does not take
advantage of the extra rows.








Telix v3.11 Mouse System Page 4

Note : Though I have never experienced the problem,
it has been said that Telix messes with the
font tables on EGA and VGA cards when the 43
and 50 lines modes are used. If you
experience this problem, please note that
this is a function of Telix, not TMS, which
has does not adjust the screen modes or the
font tables.


3.0 The Main Menu


Main Mouse Functions:
The main mouse menu is called with the left
mouse button

The dial function is called with the right
mouse button

As mentioned, both buttons emulate an ENTER


3.1 Changes from Telix's Help function.

For some inexplicable reason the author of Telix has
not alphabeticalized (sp?!) the help menu. Though TMS
tries to work with Telix as seamlessly as possible, I
have alphabeticalized the main mouse menu myself for
easier use.

3.2 Mouse Help

Clicking on Mouse Help from the main menu calls up a
brief summary of mouse operations under various
conditions.

3.3 Mouse Speed

The speed of the mouse (rate of change of on-screen
pointer vs. movement of the mouse) can be changed using
this function. For most purposes the default speed is
useable. You can navigate the menus very quickly with
a high speed, though this results in a very speedy
cursor should you use the mouse for cursor movement. I
suggest using the default mouse speed for most
purposes.





Telix v3.11 Mouse System Page 5

3.4 Information

Clicking on this function brings up a brief description
of TMS and the problems involved with releasing
ShareWare. *Please read* this before using TMS on a
regular basis.

3.5 Printer On/Off Function

Telix v3.11 accepts the [email protected] key combination as a
toggle for printer capturing. Unfortunately the kit
with which TMS was developed does not support this key
combination, therefore clicking on this function


Telix v3.11 Mouse System - Page 5

results in a small 'No can-do' message. For the moment
you must use the [email protected] keyboard combination to toggle
the printer.

4.0 The ReDial Menu

4.1 Commands

Clicking either button while Redialling numbers pulls
up a small menu of functions. They are relatively
self-explanatory so I won't go into the functions.

4.2 Exiting

Note that there are three ways to exit from the ReDial
menu. One exits to the Dialling Directory so you may
re-select the numbers you wish to dial. Another exits
to terminal mode, and a third exits to the mouse menu
so you may choose another function.

5 Future Enhancements

This is the third Mouse Menu for Telix I have released.
Some enhancements which will soon be implemented include an
auto-speed function, whereby operations involving mouse
menus operate with a high mouse speed for quick response,
and cursor movement operates with a lower mouse speed so the

cursor doesn't begin to break dance while you try and
position it. Naturally, new releases will come out as Exis
Inc. improves on Telix itself. If you would like to see
these and many more enhancements to TMS, please 'do your
bit' by registering this package.

6 Trouble Shooting

If you have problems, check the following.

1. You are using Telix v3.11 and not an earlier (or later)
version.

2. Telix is up and running.

3. Your mouse driver IS INSTALLED - this is a common
error. Without the mouse driver, not much will
happen when you try and operate TMS.

4. You are pressing the right mouse buttons to get the
operation you wish. Blind guessing will probably
just confuse you.

5. You have enough memory to install TMS. Remember, you
have to have at least 15K free ram to install it.

6. Check that your mouse is MicroSoft compatible.
Logitech and others should work, though I can't
guarantee it.

7. If problems continue and all of the above check out Ok,
drop me a note through the mail or phone. Include
any information that might be relevant (ie DOS
version, other TSRs present, total memory, computer
make, etc.) and I will do my best to help you, either
by suggesting a solution or sending you a modified
version of TMS which will work with your system.
