I hope this is the right forum to post this question. I am very new to Autoit and have written a little script. I would like it to hit the w key every 10 seconds in my script. When i run it, it kinda works, it hits w over and over non stop. I get a ton of scripts running at once to. I dont think im telling it to exit or something right. Any help would be great thanks.

Hope this helps you understand, thanks for feedback guys!

Run ("new1.exe")
WinWaitActive ("World of Warcraft")
Send ("{w}")
Sleep (10000)
WinCLose ("World of Warcraft")
Exit

ähm... yes, your problem is that you use the Run() function... it's much better and faster and only uses 1 file opened if you use a loop:

HotkeySet("{ESC}", "Exit1")

While 1
    WinWaitActive ("World of Warcraft")
    Send ("{w}")
    Sleep (10000)
Wend

Func Exit1()
    WinClose ("World of Warcraft")
    Exit
End Func

You need to put your Send key in a loop so that it repeats. "While 1" creates a condition that is always true and thus an infinite loop.

To stop this program, right-click on its tray icon and stop it. To do this more gracefully, read the documentation on HotKeySet and look through the forum for examples of how to create a Terminate function.

haha, i was faster and built hotkeyset in :evil:... because he don't have a gui xD... but i removed the Run("newl.exe") part, because i think his file is named newl.exe... because he said that the w key always was hit, but many programs were open... and if you don't remove the Run function he gets every 10 seks 2 times the w key... xD

ahm and @jdbe iit can't be so that he called is script new1.au3... 'cause he said that the w key always gets pushed... :D

all the needed i said ^^... that it's better with a loop... and i think he'll understand mine too... it's called learning by doing and not learning by explaining ^^... it's better for his future in programming if he checks himself with the helpfile or with testing, what the different code lines do... and i think that this isn't a very difficult script... if it is more complicate you're right, than it's better to explain everything...

HotkeySet("{ESC}", "Exit1")

Func Exit1()
    WinClose ("World of Warcraft")
    Exit
End Func

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

When I try this code I get the error Func has no matching end func, any clue? I tryed puting a end on it but no luck, Thanks Edited by Ford21

It should be EndFunc without any space inbetween.

Wend

Func Exit1()
    WinClose ("World of Warcraft")
