send press down tilde

Recommended Posts

Found this in the help file, but it doesn't seem to behave the way I expected (no repeating chars).

To hold a key down

Send("{a down}") ; Holds the A key down
Send("{a up}") ; Releases the A key

It sends key one time instead of pressing it.

I don't know what that means.

Perhaps you can provide a detailed description of what you expect to happen, along with your code.

I think a key only repeats when you send it's up too. Unlike the the hardware keyboard which does the up for you when you hold it in the pressed position.

He want to emulate an human pressing.

If you hold a key it will repeat the key in text edition like this : tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt

but with key send from autoit

I guess this should work:

For $i = 1 To 100

        Send("~")

        Sleep(10)

    Next

Yes, it doesn't work just sends it one time

I tried something like this also

sleep (1000)
Send("{ASC 0126 down}")
sleep (5000)
Send("{ASC 0126 up}")
 
It doesn't work at all, probably coded wrong.

The Send command will not activate key repeat, ControlSend won't do it either. You'd have to send the key multiple times yourself to get it to do what you want Send("{~ 10}") will send the tilde key 10 times in a row.

BTW, this isn't an AutoIt limitation for Send, as it does the same thing using VBScript with the SendKeys function in it.
