Holding Down Keys using ControlSend

Recommended Posts


What I'm trying to do is to do a key hold down as a ControlSend. I got it to work as a send, but I'm not sure how to work it with ControlSend

Send("{LEFT down}")
Send("{LEFT up}")
^ This is the working
ControlSend($WinTitle, "", "", "{LEFT down}", 0)

ControlSend($WinTitle, "", "", "{LEFT up}", 0)


This seems to only be  sending LEFT once

Can you explain why you need to repeatedly send the left arrow key to a specific control? If you provide a more detailed explanation of what you are trying to accomplish, then perhaps we can recommend another alternative.

P.S. This looks awfully similar to your other thread that was locked. :ermm:

I agree with Danp2. Do NOT start a third thread on this - our patience has limits. :naughty:
