PostMessage/SendMessage CTRLDOWN + 1

4 posts in this topic

Hello.

I've been trying to figure out how to postmessage/sendmessage ctrl down + a key. say, 1. Here is an example of how i thought it should work.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hWnd = "any window"

DllCall('User32.dll', "int", "PostMessage", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $WM_KEYDOWN, "int", 0x11, "int", 0)
DllCall('User32.dll', "int", "PostMessage", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $WM_KEYDOWN, "int", 0x31, "int", 0)
DllCall('User32.dll', "int", "PostMessage", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $WM_CHAR, "int", 0x31, "int", 0)
DllCall('User32.dll', "int", "PostMessage", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $WM_KEYUP, "int", 0x31, "int", 0)
DllCall('User32.dll', "int", "PostMessage", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $WM_KEYUP, "int", 0x11, "int", 0)

I've seen a few examples for (vb) but, i'm stuck with this.

Thanks.

If I use ControlSend() it does interfere with other windows. If I set ControlSend() to send CTRL + 1 to a window every 500ms and I scroll on FireFox it will zoom in and out.

Tell ControlSend where in particular to send.

Function ControlSend
