AutoIt beginner

Hi, I just found this site while looking for scripting possibilities, just trying to see how things work and what can be done.

I've downloaded the Autoit program install and the better Script part, I also got the Autoit 123 and have been taking a look through the help files aswell. But sometimes I have a hard time putting it together, may I ask for an example script so that way I can see how something would look in the end, if anyone has the time to help, much apprecaited. Also for keys on the keyboard, do I just use , the alpha letter F, or a Hexadecimal or does it matter?

~ Example,

When keyboard buttom "F" is pressed.

`Button "G" is Activated and Held.

`Button "H" is Activated and Held.

'Button "J" is Activated and Held.

All sequence of G-H-J. ~ G being beginning, J being end.

When button "F" is released", "GHJ" is released.

Thanks for any help, I hope I explained my example right.

This question doesn't make much sense to me, since I don't think I have ever seen several alpha keys being held down simultaneously, or at least not without a control key. I think that each subsequent alpha key would override the previous key. Perhaps there's something I don't know.

There are some keyboards which handle multi-key rollover but they aren't the norm. Is that for a game of some kind?

Yes, my keyboard has the ability use multiple keys at once.

Yes, this is for a game of sorts. I have difficulty moving with the default keybindings.

Thanks you for your repsonses so far.

Edit: I'm mainly just curious how the code would look in AutoIt language, if I have to use hex -codes, ect, parenthesis, or qoutes. thank you for any assistance. I admit this is and open handed attempt to see the mechanics of the code with-out having to figure out each command.

I don't know how to go multi-key using AutoIt, but I urge you to carefully read the generic response to you quest before you get hurt!

We're looking for your next legitimate question, of course.

It's okay my script is entirely with in the Code of Conduct.

I'm just curious as to I want to begin using Auto-it, if it can preform the functions needed.

Another example would be.

~ Example,

When button "X" is activated, Button "X" is repeated ( with wait and sleep standards ) until Any other key-press is activated.

Thanks again, much appreciate the responses.

Until this week I thought you could use only one key at a time. My 7 year old son made me play a 2 character internet game. Each character had three keys for left/right/jump. Both characters move independently. I guess they are using the equivalent of IsPressed().

Indeed this is a similar situation, if you have played the old 2 player on one keyboard games, I'm having a bit of difficulty getting my keyboard which accepts a maximum of 4 active keys, when we each need atleast 3.

Thank you for the response RichardL :oops:

If you mean our rules then no it isn't. You clearly stated it is for a game therefore it violates our rules. Full stop, no argument possible, the rule is zero tolerance.

Thread locked.
