Holding a key down

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

How can I hold a key down for like 10 seconds in autoit?

I tried:

Send("{a down}")

Sleep ( 10000 )

Send("{a up}")

but it doesn't seem to work since it only sends 1 "a", wait 10 seconds and then close.

thanks!

use the option

AutoItSetOption ( SendKeyDownDelay, 10000)

Alters the length of time a key is held down before being released during a keystroke. For applications that take a while to register keypresses (and many games) you may need to raise this value from the default. A value of 0 removes the delay completely.
Time in milliseconds to pause (default=5).

Thanks, it stills only send only one "a" but I'll try inside the game to see if it really does hold the key down.
