Claims

1. Device for controlling a marker or the like on a screen, operatively connected to the device and/or a function in a computer operatively connected to the device where the device comprises a pointer (10) with at least one key (30, 30b, 31, 31b) for a clicking function, characterised in that at least one key (30) is manoeuvrable in more than one way, whereby the same clicking function can be achieved by applying a force to the key in different directions depending on the individual preferences of a user.
2. Device according to claim 1, characterised in that the same clicking function can be achieved through application of force on the key (30) both in a substantially vertical direction and in one or more substantially horizontal directions.
3. Device according to either of the previous claims, characterised in that the pointer (10) comprises a pointing surface (20) with a plane, substantially horizontal orientation and in that the key (30) is positioned in connection to the back side area of the pointing surface (20).
4. Device according to claim 3, characterised in that the pointing surface has a rectangular form and that the key (30, 30b) is positioned at one of the back corners of the pointing surface.
5. Device according to either of claim 3 or 4, characterised in that the device comprises at least two keys (30, 30b) positioned on both sides of the pointing surface (20) whereby the same clicking function can be achieved for each and every key both through applying force to the respective keys (30, 30b) in a substantially vertical direction and in a substantially horizontal direction from the back centre point (20a) of the pointing surface (20).

6. Device according to any of claims 1-5, characterised in that two or more keys (30, 31) are arranged next to each other, whereby these have different heights with respect to each other in the vertical direction.
7. Device according to claim 6, characterised in that at least four keys (30, 31, 30b, 31b) are arranged in pairs with the keys arranged side by side in the respective pairs while the said pairs are arranged separately, whereby the outer keys (30, 30b) in the respective pairs are raised relative to the inner keys (31, 31b) whereby for the raised keys (30, 30b) the clicking function can be achieved both by applying a force to the respective key (30, 30b) downward in a substantially vertical direction and in a substantially horizontal direction out from the back centre point (20a) of the pointing surface (20) while for the inner lower keys (31, 31b) the clicking function is achieved through substantially vertical downward application of force on the respective key (31, 31b).
8. Device according to any of claims 1-7, characterised in that the device constitutes a complement to a keyboard and comprises wrist support (50) for a user.
9. Device according to any of claims 1-7, characterised in that the device is integrated in a keyboard.
10. Method for controlling a marker or the like on a screen, operatively connected to the device and/or a function in a computer operatively connected to the device where the device comprises a pointer (10) with at least one key for a clicking function, characterised by at least one key (30) can be manoeuvred in more than one way whereby the same clicking function can be achieved by applying force to the key in different directions depending on the individual preferences of a user.
