Left Alt vs Right Alt

6 posts in this topic

When sending a key combination (ALT+r), your documentation says you can use Send("!r"). If the application that I'm sending the keys to is dependent on the Alt key being the Right Alt, how could I accomplish the same task? I need to be able to send "Right Alt + r" Please let me know as soon as possible!

Thanks for your help,

Jacob

cdkid, you're the man! That worked like a charm. I looked through the documentation and saw the {ALTDOWN}, but didn't see anything that lead me to believe you could use other keys with the DOWN ({RALT DOWN} like you suggested). Does this work to hold down any keys until specifying an UP?

Wow, I guess I can't read today.

"To hold a key down (generally only useful for games)

Send("{a down}") ;Holds the A key down

Send("{a up}") ;Releases the A key"

Thanks for your help guys :lmao:
