Rick pretty much acknowledged what you said in this paragraph.

"You may have solved your input capturing problem, and i
don't think a GUI is the preferred solution for a
graphically deficient device anyhow, but you may well need a
GUI in the future, and this would be a fine example from which
to learn."

It is a fine example.
