Func IsPressed question

5 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I'm going through some scripts looking at samples of code and I see this. What purpose or function does it serve? I've also seen references that this is no longer needed as it is a duplicate function from an #include now, possible Misc.au3 file.

Func _IsPressed($sHexKey, $vDLL = 'user32.dll')
    ; $hexKey must be the value of one of the keys.
    ; _Is_Key_Pressed will return 0 if the key is not pressed, 1 if it is.
    Local $a_R = DllCall($vDLL, "int", "GetAsyncKeyState", "int", '0x' & $sHexKey)
    If Not @error And BitAND($a_R[0], 0x8000) = 0x8000 Then Return 1
    Return 0
EndFunc   ;==>_IsPressed

Look in the help file, under User Defined Functions Reference -> Misc Management -> _IsPressed

Or, if you prefer, type _IsPressed in the helpfile's search box on the "Index" tab ...

hth,

I do read the help files as well as do a search on this forum along with google before posting. Like a lot of non progammers without getting pretty specific help I'm clueless on most of the aspects about programming.

I did however find the function in the Misc.au3 file so I can assume that an include would mean this function is not needed in a file.

Thanks for helping.

You no longer have to manually include this function in one of your scripts. It was added to the standard libraries some time ago, before this many people copy-pasta it from a topic in the example script, to save them this trouble, and because there were several versions, the best version was added to the standard libraries.

Like a lot of people, without getting specific questions, I'm pretty clueless on what to give as answer.
