Virtual Key Codes Hex for "_" and others

Recommended Posts

AutID

Hello,

I don't know if this exists but i was looking for and didn't found a solution.

Is there a hex for the "_" keystroke(underscore)? MSDN says 0xBD is the hex for "-" and "_" but in my case the underscore is SHIFT + "-".

So how can i know if _ was pressed? Same this with the questionmark (?). In my case it is SHIFT + "/"

95 and 63 won`t work for me

I am not looking for a code like this of course

If _IsPressed("A1") And _IsPressed("BD") Then............

Don't confuse keys with characters. Which characters are sent will depend on keyboard character mapping. You need two key presses to access the underscore character. There are possibly other ways to determine the resulting character, which I don't know about, but testing two keys is probably (still) easier.

Would it not be 5F? I'm not sure if that will help because it's not referenced it the misc.au3 udf.

yeah, what czardas said.

My script is like this:

Local $sC
Local $sP
For $c = 10 To 17 ;range example
    While _IsPressed($c)
        Sleep(1)
        $sP = 1
    WEnd
    If $sP = 1 Then
        $sC = $c
        $sP = 0
    EndIf
Next
I can't read 2 keystrokes like this. It will return only one key when it is released... Edited by AutID

I doubt you can read anything with that.

You need to explain what you are trying to do if you don't want to use the answers to your original question.

I have a range of 7 keystrokes and i am reading them. I have given some names to keystrokes so they return me a string. example: 1 returns Paul, 2 return Lio etc. I am using this to add some features on a project i have created for my job and to replace an inputbox which i used to use to get the name. My problem is that some of the characters i use require double keystrokes...

If i wanted to create a keylogger i would have googled it. There are plenty out there. Edited by AutID

Are you using _IsPressed(10) to return Paul? You give an example of a range of keys and then say you are having problems with the underscore character. This doesn't make sense to me. Underscore is not a keystroke in itself - as stated previously. There is also no key with Paul written on it. The question is too vague and the problem is consequently unclear (to me at least).

Ok them me get this clear. Here is where i am atm.

<snip>

According to msdn: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd375731(v=vs.85).aspx

(0xBF) = "/?". It will work when i press backslash but not with questionmark char which requires 2 keystrokes, SHIFT + "/?"

So basically i want to make it work with double keystrokes require characters such as questionmark, underscore etc etc...

Hope it is all clear now.

AutID,

 

For $c = 0 To 227
    While _IsPressed($c)
I suggest you read this announcement. You are essentially scanning the entire keyboard - which is quite clearly not permitted. Thread locked. :naughty:
