      Hello everyone, long time since I made a post in the H&S sub-forum
      I am working on a project where in a situation I would have to hold down an arrow key and release it in another statement/command, however when I wrote the code it isn't working exactly like I thought it would. Here is an example:
      Send("{UP down}") Sleep(10000) Send("{UP up}") This should hold the up arrow key for 10 seconds before releasing it again, but when I run this code the cursor in SciTE moves up only once
      If I hold the up arrow manually for 10 seconds it "repeats" and the cursor moves up several times until I release the key... Is this a known limitation of Send? Is there any other way I can accomplish this?
      Thanks for all the help and feedback in advance! TD

      Hi all,
      I currently have this small script here:
      $T_INIT = TimerInit() Do Send("{DEL down}") Until TimerDiff($T_INIT) >= 2000 ;2000 miliseconds = 2 seconds, exactly how long it takes to delete one entire row in Microsoft Word Send("{DEL up}") What the above code does is hold down the delete key for 2 seconds.
      How would I make this script do the exact same thing if I had "DEL" as a variable? For example something like this: (Which by the way doesn't work)
      $ChosenKey = "DEL" $T_INIT = TimerInit() Do Send("{$ChosenKey& down}") Until TimerDiff($T_INIT) >= 2000 Send("{$ChosenKey& up}")All the parenthesis and "&" symbols and brackets make this difficult.

      I'm trying to hold a key down, but this is only pressing the key "a" one time and then releasing:
      Send("{a down}") MsgBox(0, '', '') EDIT:  really sorry, I forgot to search first.
