hotkey set help

11 posts in this topic

Hello i'm a bit new to autoit, i want to make a script that pretty much does the following:

When i press the "k" key, i want it to send {Space} and then {Space Down} and keep it held down until i lift my finger from the "k" key, at which point it will send the {Space Up} ... is this possible? Thanks!

HotKeySet("k", "AH")
HotKeySet("{F9}", "Terminate")


Func AH()
    Send("{Space}")
    Sleep(50)
    Send("{Space down}")
    Sleep(?????)
    Send("{Space up}")
    
EndFunc


While 1
    Sleep(500)
    WEnd

Func Terminate()
    Exit 0
EndFunc

See _IsPressed in the help file under User Defined Functions >> Misc Management

It will be something like this (Not Tested)

Func AH()
    Send("{Space}")
    Sleep(50)
    Send("{Space down}")
    While _IsPressed("4B")
        Sleep(100)
    WEnd
    Send("{Space up}")
EndFunc

with this code all that seems to be happening is, it spams space bar's really fast when i hold down k

i'd like it to just <space> and then <space down> and only <space up> once i lift my finger from "k"

#Include <Misc.au3>

HotKeySet("{k}", "AH")
HotKeySet("{F9}", "Terminate")


Func AH()
    Send("{Space}")
    Sleep(50)
    Send("{Space down}")
    While _IsPressed("4B")
        Sleep(100)
    WEnd
    Send("{Space up}")
EndFunc

While 1
    Sleep(500)
    WEnd

Func Terminate()
    Exit 0
EndFunc

Why not just hold space down ?

This works for me:

#include <Misc.au3>
HotKeySet ("k", "Spacer")

Func Spacer()
    If _IsPressed("4B") then 
        Send("{SPACE}")
    EndIf
EndFunc

While 1 
    Sleep (40)
WEnd

This script you made Maffe811 only does half of what i want, basically what i want to happen is this:

when i press the "k" key and hold it down, i want the script to send a <space bar> press, and then i want it to wait about half a second or less, and then send a <space down> and once i lift my finger from the "k" key, it will send a <space up>

... <space down> ... <space up>...

After some reading... I dont belive thoose commands exist.

#include <Misc.au3>
HotKeySet ("k", "Spacer")

Func Spacer()
    If _IsPressed("4B") then
    ;Input code when key is pressed.
    ElseIf Not _IsPressed("4B") Then
    ;Input code when key is released.
    EndIf
EndFunc

While 1
    Sleep (40)
WEnd
I could probably had an else instead of elseif... Edited by Maffe811

To hold a key down (generally only useful for games)

Send("{a down}") ;Holds the A key down

Send("{a up}") ;Releases the A key

Although he doesn't need the up/down really

Func AH()
    HotKeySet("k")
    Send("{Space}")
    Sleep(100)
    ;Send("{Space down}")
    While _IsPressed("4B")
        Send("{SPACE}")
    WEnd
    ;Send("{Space up}")
    HotKeySet("{k}", "AH")
EndFunc

Didnt really work for me and then i missed the part you posted in the helpfile and those two combined led me to belive it couldnt be done.

My bad :huh2:

I think i tried While _IsPressed but messed something up so it got stuck ;)

when i press the "k" key and hold it down, i want the script to send a <space bar> press, and then i want it to wait about half a second or less, and then send a <space down> and once i lift my finger from the "k" key, it will send a <space up>

You could checkk how many times you could send space in half a second then use:

Send ('{SPACE 30}')

If there was enough time for 30 times in .5 of a second.

...

#include <Misc.au3> 
HotKeySet ("k", "Spacer") 

Func Spacer()
    If _IsPressed("4B") then
        Send("{SPACE 30}")
    EndIf 
EndFunc 

While 1     
    Sleep (40) 
WEnd

You are missing something there just as I did in my first reply. The hotkey has to be unset when he first enters the function and reset on exit. Otherwise he will just keep calling the function again while k is held down. He wants to send a space then delay and then start sending spaces again while the key is down.

And the timing idea is not good.

By the way, this smacks of game code and you know where we stand on that. Of course that's just an opinion at this point.
