How do I use the 'dot' shortcuts?

The PalmOS responds to a number of "hidden" shortcuts for debugging your programs. You generate each of these shortcuts by writing characters on your device, or by writing them in the Palm OS Emulator if you are using that for debugging your application.

More Information


Go into a text entry application such as Memo Pad. Make the Graffiti shortcut character , followed by tap-tap (to make the dot) and then the number or letter of the desired shortcut.

For a list of the available 'dot' shortcuts, check out this FAQ from the Palm Developer Knowledgebase
