Hello everybody,

So I have two keyboards, I want to use another keyboard for macros/execute something/etc.. I want that my script would get input of keyboard, get pressed key, shift, alt, ctrl, etc..

I couldn't find any way to do it, could somebody help me? :)

(Maybe to use AutoHotKey (AHK) and send pressed key to AutoIt script?)

So, let me get this straight, you have 2 keyboards on the same computer at the same time?

You want one keyboard to be used for sending information to the script, but not both?

As far as I know, this can't be done using any program but I could be wrong.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

I'm trying to wrap my head around why you would want to do this. I have seen PCs with dual mouse/keyboards but only in very specific situations, and it never went flawlessly.


When you're dead, you don't know you're dead - it's only difficult for those that know you. It's the same way when you're stupid...

Yes, I have 2 keyboards, and I want one keyboard for normal use, to write text, and etc., and another to run macros, like pressing S button would write to an file something, or like saving/reading something and save text to clipboard with ClipGet, ClipPut.
It can be done with many programs, but I need more customization, I wanted to try something new with AutoIt :)

It's possible with AutoHotKey(witch has used AutoIt2 source code I think)
Example:

I'll use HID macros and run an autoit script when key is pressed to execute some script. :)

I've never figured out multiple keyboards.

My approach is to use joysticks to extend my keyboard.  I bind events to actions.  Actions can be a list of commands.

I have no complaints.  I mean there are lots of things wrong with the world but I am not unhappy.
How could we ever fix it all, but to hope that one day we might?

I would recommend using Xpadder, I think it would be perfect solution for this...

I have greater control with command lists.

I know Xpadder.
