Question on use of SDK in Hardware Mode

I'm developing some software that will allow programmatic control over the key back lighting. However, I want the X-Keys device to just act like an HID input device either as a keyboard or game controller. Can a program using the SDK send back light data to the device while still allowing the OS to get HID input?

I'm pretty new to these devices so I apologize in advance if there is an obvious answer to this.

Re: Question on use of SDK in Hardware Mode

The HID codes can be programmed via Hardware mode programming which burns these codes to the keypads integrated memory, once this is done you could still develop software with the SDK that can also send backlight data.

Using our software MW3.1 in HW mode will put the HID codes into the keypad's memory http://xkeys.com/PISupport/SoftwareMacroWorks.php

Excellent. I also want to know if I have the right to redistribute the C++ DLLs. I looked at the SDK but I didn't see any legal language around that topic.

Hi,
yes those are redistributable  , I'll let the right department know about the lack of documentation in that regard, thanks for information.
