Looping by pressing the joystick button

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, I have a problem here and needed your help.

I need this script to be looping when pressed a button joystick, and then loose the button to perform a function

in the case when pressed any button on the joystick enter the loop and when you release the button to appear the message.

thank you.

#Include <GUIConstants.au3>

; Find the max length of the longest label
$label_len = 0

    $len = StringLen($text)
    If $len > $label_len Then
        $label_len = $len
$label_len *= 6

        $coor[1] = DllStructGetData($lpJoy,1,4) ; Y Axis
        $coor[2] = DllStructGetData($lpJoy,1,5) ; Z Axis

        $coor[6] = DllStructGetData($lpJoy,1,11); POV Value
        $coor[7] = DllStructGetData($lpJoy,1,9) ; Buttons Mask

    Return $coor


contrary to what you might think is not automation games, but a mechanical arm controlled by a joystick (analog) only by pressing the function assigned to it is called several times, even giving a touch very quickly on the button.

I do not know if it violates the rules of the forum, anyway thanks.

      Hello my friends
      Can we create a single context menu on more than one item?
      For example, a context menu includes standardized options on more than one control, such as buttons or check boxes
      to Create a context menu on one item am using this function
      GUICtrlCreateContextMenu ($ HWND)
      How to link it with more than one element please?
      or if we can't do that, please give me a solution
      so i tried to add an context menus to all the controls but the script will be long, for that if their are any solutions i hope to give it to me
      thanks in advanced

      Is there a (simple) way to make your script using a picture-control to resize the gui?
      This would be useful for a transparant pop-up window with a custom made theme using picture controls:
      $Form = GUICreate('', 301, 173, 5, 5, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)) GUICtrlCreatePic(@scriptdir & "\resize_win.bmp", 0, 73, 20, 51) ; some api call or code telling the os to use this picture as a resize border GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT+$GUI_DOCKTOP+$GUI_DOCKBOTTOM+$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While True if GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE then Exit WEnd  
      EDIT: to make it more clear what i wanna do, if you go with the mouse arrow over the border of a re-sizable window the arrow changes to a "resize" arrow, you click and drag the border and then the window size adjusts to the mouse position until you release the mouse button.
      I want my picture control to be used the same way as the resize border to resize my window.

      An application is there which is created using vc++,mostly mfc.
      DOn't know the details completely.
      WHen I try to automate the control clicks for testing the UI.
      THe below control is not detected.
      As you can see, during UI operations I can click the elements one by one.
      But all the elements is selected as a whole set, when I use the Windowinfo tool.

      How to click this using AutoIT.?
      Please suggest.

      Hello AutoIt-Fans. The main reason why I wrote this script was to simulate the entire keyboard with just the joypad. Mostly I need it when I play retro games on an emulator like CCS64 or VICE emulator, PCSXR, ... So maybe someone can use it too.
      In the configuration file macroJoy.cfg you can define your macros. A macro has two parts, a button sequence-line and the commands-line. If all buttons of a sequence-line (one by one or simultaneously, depending on pushType) are pressed, the functions in the commands-line will be invoked. The following functions are currently available: sendkey, run, focus, killproc, cursor, sleep. If you like you can add some custom functions in includes/functions.au3. Below you will find a configuration example and a brief description.
      The program resides in the system tray. Use the menu item Check JoyData to test your macros or see the joystick button codes. 
      Project files can be downloaded from Github macroJoy Source code.zip
