two keypress at once help?

7 posts in this topic

Hi! I’m new to scripting with autoit so go easy on me!

I’m trying to do a simple script that press two key at once simultaneously in this case q and w about 500 times.

I tried this : send ("{qw 500}") but I get only the q to work?

any help would be appreciated!

wizart,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :mellow:

You cannot press 2 keys absolutely simultaneously - there is always one slightly ahead (or behind) the other.

Why do you want to send a double key press 500 times anyway?

thank you Melba23 for the quick response.

My friend and i are doing a simple flash game and in this game you have to press Q and W has fast has you can. I wanted to see if there was a way to simulate the keypress Q and W about 500 with autoit.

What would be the best way to do it ?

wizart,

Sounds like a fascinating game. :mellow:

Have you thought of a loop?

For $i = 1 To 500
    Send("qw")
Next

Good luck with it

Its just a little confusing that you are capable of writing a flash game but cannot figure out a loop, and sounded like it was just an annoying spam tool.

But I'm sure I'm wrong, and its just that flash dosent use loops.
