  1. Hello everyone, long time since I made a post in the H&S sub-forum I am working on a project where in a situation I would have to hold down an arrow key and release it in another statement/command, however when I wrote the code it isn't working exactly like I thought it would. Here is an example: Send("{UP down}") Sleep(10000) Send("{UP up}") This should hold the up arrow key for 10 seconds before releasing it again, but when I run this code the cursor in SciTE moves up only once If I hold the up arrow manually for 10 seconds it "repeats" and the cursor moves up several times until I release the key... Is this a known limitation of Send? Is there any other way I can accomplish this? Thanks for all the help and feedback in advance! TD
  2. im trying to make randomly hold 3 keys but its doesnt work any suggestions? #cs ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- AutoIt Version: Author: myName Script Function: Template AutoIt script. #ce ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ; Script Start - Add your code below here Global $Paused, $counter = 0 HotKeySet ("{HOME}", "Start") HotKeySet ("{END}", "_Exit") While 1 Sleep(200) WEnd Func Start() While 1 call ("ClickRandomly") sleep (500) WEnd EndFunc Func ClickRandomly() Local $RandomNumber = Random(1,3,1) If $RandomNumber == 1 Then send ("{a down}") sleep (2000) send ("{A UP}") sleep (5000) EndIF If $RandomNumber == 2 Then send ("{d down}") sleep (2000) send ("{d UP}") sleep (5000) EndIF If $RandomNumber == 3 Then send ("{w down}") sleep (2000) send ("{w UP}") sleep (5000) EndIF EndFunc Func _Exit() Exit EndFunc
  3. Hi all, I currently have this small script here: $T_INIT = TimerInit() Do Send("{DEL down}") Until TimerDiff($T_INIT) >= 2000 ;2000 miliseconds = 2 seconds, exactly how long it takes to delete one entire row in Microsoft Word Send("{DEL up}") What the above code does is hold down the delete key for 2 seconds. How would I make this script do the exact same thing if I had "DEL" as a variable? For example something like this: (Which by the way doesn't work) $ChosenKey = "DEL" $T_INIT = TimerInit() Do Send("{$ChosenKey& down}") Until TimerDiff($T_INIT) >= 2000 Send("{$ChosenKey& up}")All the parenthesis and "&" symbols and brackets make this difficult.
  4. Hello. I'm trying to hold a key down, but this is only pressing the key "a" one time and then releasing: Send("{a down}") MsgBox(0, '', '') EDIT: really sorry, I forgot to search first. This question is answered here: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> Please delete this thread if you want to.
