Shorten repeated SEND keystrokes

Recommended Posts

I have some repeated code like this:

===========
Send("{CTRLDOWN}")
Send("{END}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{END}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{END}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{END}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{END}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{CTRLUP}")
===========

where END and TAB repeat themselves.

Although the above works well, it probably is not the most efficient way to write, especially if the pattern repeats for about 50 times.

How can I make it shorter, please?

That is, how do I incorporate // Send("+{TAB 4}") ; Presses Shift + Tab 4 times //  here, because it involves two keys END and TAB ?

Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yes, the following code nicely replaces the earlier one :

===========
Send("{CTRLDOWN}")

For $i = 1 To 5 Step 1
Send("{END}")
Send("{TAB}")

Next
Send("{CTRLUP}")
===========

However, I was hopeful of a single line of code like Send(("{END}" "{TAB}") 5) .

Anyway, if not possible, leave it, not much an issue.

Thanks.

Nope though you can add the End and Tab together

Send("{END}{TAB}")

Or maybe this 

Send("{END down}{TAB 50}{END up}")

@hutralospi There is no way to do something like that with Send unfortunately. Using a For loop is the best we can do.

P.S The Step keyword in a For loop is optional and is 1 by default :)

_CtrlSequence("{END}", "{TAB}", 5)

Func _CtrlSequence($arg1, $arg2, $count)
    Send("{CTRLDOWN}")
    For $i = 1 To $count
        Send($arg1)
        Send($arg2)
    Next
    Send("{CTRLUP}")
EndFunc
