[Solved] AutoIT equivalent to vbKeySubtract?

Go to solution Solved by GMK,

Right now, I'm just activating a window and using the AutoIT Send command to send "{NUMPADSUB}" to a window, but I'd like to use the native COM command to send directly to a PowerTerm Pro object. (I've developed a UDF for PowerTerm Pro, so if anyone has any interest, let me know.) Does anyone know if there's an AutoIT equivalent to vbKeySubtract?

I assume it is 0x6D - that is the key code for the "Subtract" key in all languages. :)

You can see the full list on the Help file page for _IsPressed. ;)

Well, just in case anyone is curious, I found a way to accomplish what I needed. The VBA help file indicated keystrokes similar to or exactly like AutoIT's send command: {ENTER}, {TAB}, etc. I thought I'd try something else, since it wasn't working, and the command worked with <ENTER>, <PF1>, <PF4>, etc. I don't know if anyone could explain what might cause this, but at least I found a solution for this problem. Now if I can find a solution for looping through and/or attaching to different PowerTerm Pro windows (i.e., objects), I'll be great! I've tried using the beta version of ObjGet, but with no success, but perhaps that's for a different topic.
