Need help with an easy script

3 posts in this topic

Hello all. Before posting this I did some googlin and search this forum to no avail.

I'm looking for a very simple script I was hoping someone would be kind enough to help me with, or point me in the right direction. I'm looking for something that will infinitely send a button press while the button is held. For instance if I hold down the 1 button I'd like for it to repeat infinitely until I release the button. Hope somebody out there can help me with this.

Welcome the the AutoIt forum. :)

No need for AutoIt to make a key repeat if it is pressed continuously, that is the default behaviour under Windows - try it yourself in Notepad. :)


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

It's not possible to send NUMPAD1 by script if you already hold down it.

But with an hotkey you can try something like this :

HotKeySet ( "{PAUSE}", "_Invert" )

$_Var = False

While 1
    If $_Var = True Then Send ( "{NUMPAD1}" )
    ;Sleep ( 1000 )

Func _Invert ( )
    If $_Var = True Then
        $_Var = False
        $_Var = True

no need to press the button all the time...Posted Image
