Recorded Macro replay speed

Recommended Posts

Hi all ...

sorry if I bug you, and I am sure the answer to my question lies somewhere in the docs, but I am in a hurry, so I misuse you as a time-saver ...

does Autoit have a way to not only record mouse movements and keyboard actions, but also their speed? I think about using AutoIT (which I have used before to automate installations) for automated testing of software. The objective is to let a software run at roughly(exactly) the same speed like when operated by the user to find bugs which are related to timing issues. I know I can do code like

sendkeys ...

sleep ...

sendkeys ...

but is the macro recorder capable of doing this automatically, or would I have to add the "sleep" commands by hand?

Thx, ALina.

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

Look at Opt("SendKeyDelay", #) in the Help file - that function "Alters the length of the brief pause in between sent keystrokes" which sounds like what you want.
