LWINUP?

5 posts in this topic

Hey all, back again for some help.

I'm once again just trying to write a simple macro...

Send ("{LWINDOWN}") - works fine

Send ("d") - works fine

Then I try to send the "LWINUP" function, and LWINUP simply never turns orange, it stays grey like normal text.

Any ideas as to why this is happening? The help file simply says, {LWINDOWN} presses the left windows key down until the {LWINUP} key is sent. Am I missing something here? I've checked and double checked the syntax...

:zorro: Judging what you want to do... you want to minimize all the windows using WinKey+D... right? So, I do it like:

Send('{LWINDOWN}d')
Send('{LWINUP}')

OR perhaps just:

Send('{LWINDOWN}d{LWINUP}')

How's that???

Both are working for me (Win XP x86).

Wouldn't this be easier?

Send("#d")


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.

Thanks,

#d works, but MKISH, as for LWINUP, that was my problem. I was trying to use it, but it was acting as if I didn't have the library, or something, installed that calls LWINUP. LWINDOWN and RWINDOWN worked just fine, but neither UP key.
