Is there a way, like send, controlsend, to "emulate" a button press with virtual key code?

Sends 0x41 ("A") key.

DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'keybd_event', 'int', 0x41, 'int', 0, 'int', 0, 'ptr', 0)
DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'keybd_event', 'int', 0x41, 'int', 0, 'int', 2, 'ptr', 0)

Just wrap those 2 lines in a function: ;)


Func _Send_Virtual_Key($iCode)
    If Not IsInt($iCode) Then Return
    DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'keybd_event', 'int', $iCode, 'int', 0, 'int', 0, 'ptr', 0)
    DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'keybd_event', 'int', $iCode, 'int', 0, 'int', 2, 'ptr', 0)

How much more convenient would you like it to be? :)
