Can controldsend call a function?

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Good day, i have been trying to make and script so i dont get kicked from a chat application, it sends a key stroke to the application ever 8 or so minutes (if i didnt the math wrong), it work when i leave the window in first plane and i go to do another thing out of the pc, but now i want it to work when the window program isnt focused (still not minimized since i get is kinda different controls for minimzed windows) and stil be able to use the computer. I have been playing with the controlsend() function but i cant seem to make it work the way i want.

Global $UnPaused
HotKeySet("{f9}", "TogglePause")
HotKeySet("{f8}", "Terminate")
global $counter = 0
Local $hWnd = WinWait("[CLASS:LWJGL]", "")

While 1
    Sleep(100)
    ToolTip("Script is Paused",0,0)
WEnd

Func TogglePause()
    $UnPaused = NOT $UnPaused
    While $UnPaused
        ToolTip("Sending...",0,0)
        ControlSend($hWnd, "", "", Call("Specific"))

    WEnd
 EndFunc

 Func Specific()
     
        If $counter = 800 Then
           send("{space}")
           $counter = 0
        EndIf
        $counter += 1
        Sleep(700)
        EndFunc


Func Terminate()
    Exit 0
EndFunc

So my doubt lays on the way im using Controlsend() to call a function (if it is possible to use both like that) or if the looping/function is done wrong, since i get kicked from the chat

Thanks in advance

You're not using ControlSend to do anything. You're using this line to TRY and do a ControlSend, but all it's doing is calling the function, and that function is trying to do a Send instead.

ControlSend($hWnd, "", "", Call("Specific"))

Get rid of the send in that function and just use the function to do a ControlSend. Get rid of the ControlSend line you're using too, and do it inside the function if you feel the need.

Also, you don't need to use CALL at all. In fact you rarely ever need to use Call to call a function.

OK, so i modified to shape it like this (changed to notep to test it) and it worked as intended on notepad

Func TogglePause()
    $UnPaused = NOT $UnPaused
    While $UnPaused
        ToolTip("Sending...",0,0)
        If $counter = 800 Then
           ControlSend($hWnd, "", "Edit1", "{space}")
           $counter = 0
        EndIf
        $counter += 100
         sleep(700)

    WEnd
 EndFunc

Sadly the aplication im using doesnt have info to put on the "Edit1" place, im thinking of using the process ID, but that is a question for another thread. Thanks a lot

By the way, you'll be sending more than once a second

700 = 0.7 seconds approx

you want...

$sleep = (1000 * 60) * 8 ; 8 minutes approx

; 1000 = 1 second

; (1000 * 60 = 1 minute) * 8 = 8 minutes

Sleep($sleep)
