Morse code macro thing - need a little help

Recommended Posts

BarryBareth

Hey guys! This is my first post here and any help will be appreciated.

I'm quite new to any kind of scripting and I've been trying to make a script that types anything I type on my keyboard in morse code.

The issue here is that i can't figure out a way to do "spaces", since when I try to do them it just gets stuck in a loop that spams the "/" symbol. Just enable the last func in the comment, if you want to see for yourself.

I want it to do a "/ " when i press the space bar.

Thanks for any replies!

Hotkeyset apparently sends whatever you have set, in addition to whatever you have set for the space character (since you have a space character in your Send),  see here with the letter "a"

 

HotKeySet("{esc}", "stahp")
HotKeySet("a", "ay")
HotKeySet("{space}", "spake")

while 1
    sleep(10)
WEnd

Func ay()
   Send(".- ")
EndFunc


Func spake()
   send("SPACE_CHARACTER")
EndFunc


Func stahp()
   Exit
EndFunc

 

remove that space from your morse letters and you will probably get the behavior you desire.

BarryBareth,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

Unfortunately what you posted was a crude keylogger - which as you can see from the Forum rules is a forbidden subject here.  I realise that you were not trying to log keys. but I suggest you read this announcement which clarifies what you can and cannot discuss on the forum with regards to key press detection. Thread locked.
