_IsPressed not working for "FD" ( ² key)? | Double tap code?

Recommended Posts

For Azerty keyboard, the [ ² ³ ] key on top left is one of the best placed keys that you can also do without.

Therefore I'd like to assign it multiple functions.

(1) I can't seem to get _IsPressed ("FD", "_Main") to work for it.

FD *is* the correct hex code for it, isn't it?

Major bummer if this wouldn't detect...

(2) I've been searching here for "key held" code and "double tap" code.

For "key held" I found

For Double tap, I'm sensing this could be related?

But I haven't been able to figure it out yet...

I'd love if someone could add a "double tap" piece of code to the following:

(in the example I've used "C0", which is hopefully "`" for you Querty guys?

#include <Misc.au3>
$user32 = DllOpen("user32.dll")
$key = "C0" ; hex code for `, but looking for hex code for &sup2; ("FD"? but not working for _IsPressed)
HotKeySet( "`", "_Main")

While 1

Func _Main()

While 1 * Sleep(10)

If _IsPressed($key,$user32) Then
     $t = TimerInit()
     Until Not _IsPressed($key,$user32) Or TimerDiff($t) > 400
     If _IsPressed($key,$user32) Then ; if still pressed


Func IfHeld()
MsgBox("", "", "You've HELD the hotkey", 0.8)

Func IfTapped()
MsgBox("", "", "You've TAPPED the hotkey", 0.8)

Func IfDoubleTapped()
MsgBox("", "", "You've DOUBLE TAPPED the hotkey", 0.8)

Thank you! :)

Try using the basic editing mode, rather than the full featured editing mode, it's the icon on the upper left of the reply box, tooltip says "Toggle editing mode". The code blocks don't like Unicode for some reason.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

_IsPressed is made for qwerty keyboards (this is an assumption), but azerty keyboards have similar keys so you can use it.

I have already tried to capture this key, not hard to do : just make a for from 0 to 0xFF for example and see if it works. The result is that the key ² can not be caught.

Maybe you can find an external library to do it.
