Only action if BOTH keys pressed

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

i found this script by melba23 and its exactly what i wanted > link

#include <Misc.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll")

HotKeySet("{q}","_Start") ; Fire HotKey on q key
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

While 1

Func _Start ()

    ; Look for w key
    If _IsPressed("57", $hDLL) Then
        ; Only action if BOTH pressed
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Got it")


Func _Exit()


if im not wrong, if i hold q key first and then press w key, then the output will be messagebox that says "got it"

but when i tested it, it doesnt do anything.

but if i reverse the order, hold w key first, and then press q key, it works.

now i dont know why is this happen, or is this how this script supposed to do? or there's something wrong?

thank you.

This works:

Func _Start ()

    ; Look for w key
    While _IsPressed(51)
        If _IsPressed(57) Then
            ; Only action if BOTH pressed
            MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Got it")

if im not wrong

I am afraid you are. The script fires the function when the "q" key is pressed - at this point it checks for the "w" key which must have been pressed before the function was fired. All clear?

      i  want to make read-only edit box and the program writes the latest shortcut key pressed
      Please help me,
      greetings to all
      And thanks in advance

      hello guys
      how are you؟
      I hope to be fine.
      I have a question  please
      how do I get the menu item that was pressed without that contains a variable؟
      For example I have a menu  of Favorites and I want the script recognizes the existing path in the pressed item
      i'll repeat to tell the item does not contain a variable
      Is there any solution
      if you want to explain more I could write an example of what I want.
      Greetings to all,
      thanks in advance

      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE Sleep Local $oFrame Local $oDiv For If EndIf Next This is my code and i'd like to repeat the action of clicking a button by its classname every 3 seconds.... i get this done only once and after the first time it doesn't repeat itself.
      Should i insert a continue loop, and if so how can i relate it to my code because i haven't found nothing in help file or example scripts....

      Hey can anyone help me with the right syntax of writing 2 IF conditionals before completing an action? (two IFs must be completed so the action be performed)
      should i write it " If(....) and If(......) then " or " If(....)  , If(....) then " or these are wrong ways?

      I am looking for examples of AutoIt using sendkeys.
      What I would like to use is from an Excel VBA to call the AutoIt.exe file and then take a value from Excel (say cell D4 text  'abc') and sendkeys to an app (the only other open application). Could be Word, Notepad, Arduino monitor, etc. any and only 1 of which will be open.
      Where would I find such examples ?
