Send problems

Recommended Posts

Hello to all :mellow:

i have problem with the Send command (i found this script somewhere here but can`t rly remember from where.)

using this script cause of stuck ctrl key when i use hotkey combination

#include <Misc.au3>
;Send the string $ss after the Shift Alt and Ctrl keys are released.
;Optionally give a warning after 1 sec if any of those keys still down.
;Requires misc.au3 to be included in the script for the _IsPressed function.

Func _SendEx($ss, $warn = "")
    Local $iT = TimerInit()

    While _IsPressed("10") Or _IsPressed("11") Or _IsPressed("12")
        If $warn <> "" And TimerDiff($iT) > 1000 Then
            MsgBox(262144, "Warning", $warn)
    $ss = Asc($ss)
    Send("{" & $ss & "}")


My question is : can i use other command to "Send" a key to window? (seems the window is protected and send don`t work, spent some time to test it and the window just don`t accept the commands, that the program is sending)

also i have similar problem with mouse but i`ll leave this for later

yes there is another way to send info to a window and it's called Control Send. Use the Window info tool to get some information about your window and where you want to send the information to and read up on control send.

I would suggest ditching your above code until you get the basics working.

good luck

ok that seems working but i have problems with some keys.

before i was using this :

AutoItSetOption ( "SendKeyDelay", 200 )
AutoItsetoption ( "SendKeyDownDelay", 200)
AutoItSetOption ( "SendKeyDelay", 0 )
AutoItsetoption ( "SendKeyDownDelay", 50)

but if i use ControlSend delays seems not working. any ideas how to fix this ?
