This is a first version of my KbTool application for Kolibri.

KbTool combines the functions of the applications Zkey, KeyView, Asciivju, and Keyascii.
KbTool provides buttons to choose a country with the according code page and keyboard layout.
KbTool highlights the key, the ascii symbol, and the leds while typing .
KbTool handles dead key combinations for the diacritical symbols in the CP1252 code page.
KbTool handles Alt_Numkey entries for keyboards that have a numeric keypad.
KbTool has an input field that handles caret blink, backspace, "home", and "end".
I reviewed the existing layouts and added the country code 09 for "Pr Private" and 10 for "ES Spanish".
I added scancodes to obtain a distinct scancode for every keyboard key.
I implemented key conversion for the AltGr combined with the Shift key.

To use KbTool, just copy the attached file "KbTool" to your Kolibri disk and run it.
I would appreciate feed back about the correctness of the layouts.

In a separate topic, i will publish details and the (Fasm) API to call some of the used routines.

Sounds really interesting, altough I dont like the colors. Why dont you use the system colors?

You can slightly reduce the size of the window, if you remove the header. Better when on-screen keyboard takes up little space as you think?
