ControlSend whilst other keys are being pressed.

Recommended Posts


I'm using ControlSend to send hotkey repeatedly to a window a number of times.

Sometimes it fails to send this key set to the window.

I wondered if this was down to other keys being pressed by the user whilst ControlSend was being executed.

For instance, if I send Ctrl+Down 10 times, but manually press Alt or other button once during those 10 times, will one more fail to send?

If so how would I work around this?



The code I'm using for the ControlSend is:

ControlSend($hWND, "", "", "^{Down 10}")

I have proper error checking for $hWND, so that is not the issue.
