press apostrophe

4 posts in this topic

All I'm trying to do is make a script that pushes the ` key (apostrophe). I checked the list of simulated key presses and I didn't see the apostrophe. Can this button not be simulated? I'm running Vista64

Thanks,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum!

Simply use Send("`") if you want to send the character typed in your post (Unicode name grave accent). Note that this is not the same than an apostrophe, or more correctly, a single quote.

0x60 ` grave accent

0x27 ' apostrophe

Look in the appendix of the help file, there is an ASCII & ANSI latin 1 table. Not all keys have verbose names.


This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
