using left / right keys to control device

Hi all.
Just purchased this excellent piece of kit and almost have a fully functioning program, just one small hurdle..!
 
Can anyone tell me how or what i should use to send either a "steady" (every second)L or R command through the serial port when a user holds down either the L or R key?
At the moment i'm sending multiple keystrokes when i hold down either key, but ideally i just want a character sent every second.
I'm using an access database and tried the "on timer" event with various textboxes but nothing seems to work whilst that textbox has the focus. I have tried keydown events with timers but again the keydown event stops the timer event from working.! Rather frustrating.
Anyway, that's the problem - if someone could shove me in the right direction then i would be grateful - if you have some working code i would be even more grateful!!

Hello. I wonder if you have already purchased Serial Port Control product or probably you are talking about something different Smiley
 
Anyway it would be great if you could send us your codes and functions of your program. We'll see what you are trying to do and we will offer you something to fit your needs.
