Send/Post the same key that is held down - (Locked)

Recommended Posts


I'm new to autoit and need a little direction/help. 
For a game, I do not like pressing "Q" over and over again.  I would rather just hold the Q down and release when I am done.

Is it possible to distinguish between when I physically press the Q up/down on my keyboard AND when a Q up/down is sent/posted through autoit to a window?

Thanks for the help

NOTE:  I realize that I could pick a different key, but I'm asking about the same key.

Game automation is not allowed here.
Maybe you missed to read Forum Rules and Forum Etiquette.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum.

Unfortunately you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked.

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope.
