Virtual Key Code (UDF)

Recommended Posts

Belini

I made a UDF to return the code for each button to dispense with the table of key codes.

_keycodes.au3

; #FUNCTION# =====================================================================================
; Name...........: _keycodes
; Language ......: English
; Description ...: Return the key code
; Syntax.........: $variable = _KeyCodes($sInputKey)
; Parameters ....: key
; Return values..: Success    - Virtual Key Code
;                 Failure     - @ Error returns "0" if the code is not listed
; Author ........: Belini
; Country.........:Brazil
; Modified.......:
; Remarks .......:
; Related .......:

; Example .......: Yes

#CS
;#EXAMPLE# =======================================================================================
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Const $MASCARA = 0x8000
Const $tecla = _keycodes("a")

MsgBox('', '', "The key code is  " & '"' & $tecla & '"')
While 1
    $estado = _WinAPI_GetAsyncKeyState($tecla)
    If BitAND($estado, $MASCARA) Then MsgBox('', '', "The key was pressed.")

Just for the heck of it, you should add a sleep in the while loop so it won't use up an entire CPU in the example.

While 1 
  sleep(10)
$iEstado = _WinAPI_GetAsyncKeyState($sCode)     
If BitAND($iEstado, $MASCARA) Then MsgBox(4096, "_KeyCode", 'The key "' &amp; $sTecla &amp; '" was pressed.')
WEnd

Also, the same things with less code is in the example, you just need to tweak it a little.

THAT1ANONYMOUSEDUDE,

Your code is too close to a real keylogger - so it has vanished. We all know it works, but please do not post it again - Jon does not approve. :oops:

Oh god, I had a suspicion this was a probability. Sorry about that, I would have thought detecting only one character would have not skimmed close enough to the posted rules.
