Need to capture NumPad directional keys

2 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I am trying to capture a NumPad direction key-press and send out a normal arrow key-press in its place. These are the numpad keys that register when numlock is OFF (2, 4, 6, 8).

I am currently using the _IsPressed Function but there is no HexKey for these buttons, only for the numerical numpad keys. Is there another way I can do this?

AaronBaird,

The Numpad keys already send out normal arrow key presses when the NumLock is off - take a look at this: ;)

#include <Misc.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "On_Exit")
Func On_Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

While 1

    ; Look for the NumPad 6 key
    If _IsPressed("66") Then ConsoleWrite("You pressed the NumPad 6 with the Numlock ON" & @CRLF)
    While _IsPressed("66")
        Sleep(10)
    WEnd

    ; Look for the right arrow key
    If _IsPressed("27") Then ConsoleWrite("You pressed the NumPad 6 with the Numlock OFF" & @CRLF)
    While _IsPressed("27")
        Sleep(10)
    WEnd

WEnd
