NOCAPSLOCK Commodity
Purpose: Disables the Caps Lock key.
Format: NOCAPSLOCK [CX_PRIORITY <priority>] [DONOTWAIT]
Template: CX_PRIORITY/K/N, DONOTWAIT/K
Path: SYS:Tools/Commodities/NoCapsLock
NOCAPSLOCK disables the Caps Lock key. The Shift keys still function normally, but Caps Lock no effect if pressed, either intentionally or accidentally. However the keyboard will still appear to function normally and the Caps Lock light will show if pressed, but programs will ignore it.

The CX_PRIORITY <priority> argument sets the priority of NoCapsLock in relation to all of the other Commodity Exchange programs. (This is the same as entering a CX_PRIORITY=<priority> Tool Type in the icon's Information window.) All of the Commodity Exchange programs are set to a default priority of 0. If you specify a <priority> higher than 0, NOCAPSLOCK will take priority over any other Commodity Exchange program.

NOCAPSLOCK can also be started by from a shell, double-clicking on its icon, from the Exchange window or including it in the WBStartup drawer so that it automatically starts each time you boot. It does not open a window.

To disable NOCAPSLOCK, simply run it again, or open the Exchange window, select NOCAPSLOCK from the scroll gadget, and select the Remove gadget.
