Does _IsPressed function work with keys that contains accents? - (Moved)


Recommended Posts


I want to use is _IsPressed function with accent keys.

In the hungarian keyboard there are keys like á ö í ű and I did not found the in the _IsPressed documentation.

For further thinking there are keys in ohter languages, we can collect them.

It appears that the _IsPressed function calls the Windows API GetAsyncKeySync function, so it is not specifically limited to the Hex Codes in the help file, but should support at least all of the Virtual Key Codes listed in the MS documentation.

Now, having said that, the virtual key codes page (above) does not specifically mention accented characters, so some researching or creativity to capture what key code those keys use may be necessary, but once the codes are identified, I would think it should work.

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:


General development and scripting discussions. If it's super geeky and you don't know where to put it - it's probably here.

Do not create AutoIt-related topics here, use the AutoIt General Help and Support or AutoIt Technical Discussion forums.

I can confirm that it is working with french keyboard.  For example é is vk "BF".  To know what vk is for each char, you can use _WinAPI_SetWindowsHookEx example found in the help file.
