opposite of _IsPressed??

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

So i understand _IsPressed and ive used it a few times before. Currently im trying to figure out how to do if any other key is pressed besides the one its looking for.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include<String.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("GUI", 401, 201, 723, 228)
GUISetBkColor(0x0000FF)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
Local $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll")
 
HotKeySet("{F2}", "Close")
 
$Password = "Hello"
 
Func Close()
    Exit
EndFunc
 
$Password = StringUpper($Password)
$len = StringLen($Password)
$array = StringSplit($Password, "")
For $i = 1 to $len Step 1
    $Hex = _StringToHex($array[$i])
        Do
            Sleep(100)
        Until _IsPressed($Hex)
Next
ConsoleWrite("Outside the For Loop")
 

currently, if you just mash the keyboard, you will eventually get the password correct since the For loop doesnt reset itself on an incorrect letter. eventually i would like it to put an * in the top left corner as a tooltip for every letter i type correctly. if i type it incorrectly too many times, it will run a count down as a tooltip in the top left corner. however im just trying to get the first part done which is the for loop resetting on an incorrect letter typed.

Kidney,

The problem I see with the direction you are taking this script is that you are essentially looking to detect which key has been pressed - how else will you determine whether it was the key required for the password? And looking to detect which of all the keys has been pressed brings us into keylogger territory - I appreciate that is not your intention, but what you are trying to do is the same thing. If you have not read this announcement please do so now. ;)

Kidney,

If you just want to validate a password you might take a look at InputBox.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but what you r saying is that the only way to accomplish what I am trying to do is to scan for every letter besides the one I'm looking for? Which I understand is very very close to a key logger so if that is the case, I won't be asking for help on this script. I was just curious if there was a simple way to code the idea of, "any other key besides the letter z, restart the for loop" without it looking like a key logger.

@kylomas, I originally was gonna go down that route but I kinda liked the idea of a no GUI approach. I understand I have a GUI currently in the code but that is for testing only.

I quite understand that, which is why I did not come over all heavy initially. :)

But I know of no way to do that without getting into "keylogger" type code, which is why I pointed you at the announcement.  :(

I really do think that an InputBox is the easiest way to go - it is designed for it. ;)

The GUI approach will cause you less headache down the road, due to the fact it's visual so you can see the number of characters you've typed. What you want to do will loose it's appeal when you start loosing track of how many characters you've entered etc.

Keylogger?  To me you are describing the Hangman game using the same one word everytime.

I always thought has a simple Hangman engine you can adapt to suit. 

I could be wrong.

Malkey,

Exactly the kind of approach I was suggesting. :)
