How to make commands shorter?

Recommended Posts

Hello I'm trying to figure out how to make a key press command into an abbreviated version to use in a script, so that I dont take up tons of lines. I know this must be extremely simple but I've been looking everywhere and cant figure it out. I'll show an example blow.

Global $Cata = Send("{2 down}")
Send("{5 down}")
sleep(100)
Send("{2 up}")
Send("{5 up}")
sleep(2500) 

how do I make it so in a script by just using $Cata that it will know to send the text following?

You probably wouldn't believe me but I managed to emulate a ps4 controller through my computer. Remapped the controller buttons to keys on my laptop. I've made a few scripts over 5000 lines of code and getting hard to find spots that I made an error with that many lines. I know there has so be a some way to shorten those key press commands but I just cant figure. If you can help me with the solution to this problem I'd very much appreciate it.  Thank you :)

One possible way: you can put all the Send() and Sleep() sequence into a single string by separating them with the + sign and then use Execute () to execute that string of commands; something like this for example:

HotKeySet("{Esc}", "Bye")
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "captureMyKey")

Global $Cata = 'Send("{2 down}") + Send("{5 down}") + sleep(100) + Send("{2 up}") + Send("{5 up}") + sleep(2500)'

While Not GUIGetMsg()
WEnd

Func captureMyKey()
    Execute($Cata)
EndFunc   ;==>captureMyKey

Func Bye()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>Bye

Another approach is to use a function that combines send key and sleep ie..

_key_slp("keys ",2000)

Func _key_slp($k,$s=0)
    Send($k)
    Sleep($s)
EndFunc

If you use sleep a lot could cut down quite a bit on the number of lines.  Remapping the controller sounds challenging, good luck and don't forget to enjoy the process.
