prevent key hold down...?

Recommended Posts


I have a relatively simple question with I hope a relatively simple answer...how is it possible to prevent the user from pressing and holding down a key? In other words to allow only singular keystrokes at a time...for example (see code below) allowing the 'right arrow' key on the keyboard to be depressed so as to run the function but to ignore when the user holds the key down...? Thank you in advance...

HotKeySet("{RIGHT}", "right")
Func right()
if $Map_X >= -1280 Then
GUICtrlSetPos($TheMap, $Map_X - 10, $Map_Y)
$Map_X -= 10
EndFunc ;==>right

Look at _IsPressed() in the help document. You can use a loop to determine the threshold in which you want something to happen.
