Can autoit press a key like a physical press - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,
I'm just starting to learn autoit, I'm doing a example that I need autoIT press a key everytime i click a mouse like a physical press.

Everytime I left click the mouse, AutoIT helps me press "A".

Here is the code but it doesn't work like I thought:

#include <Misc.au3>

$hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll")
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "On_Exit")
MsgBox(64, "Example", "START",5)
While 1
    If _IsPressed("01", $hDLL) Then
Func On_Exit()

Thank you for reading

Moved to the appropriate AutoIt General Help and Support forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:


General development and scripting discussions.

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

well, "Sleep(10)" is not a good contingency. But  

While 1
    If _IsPressed("01", $hDLL) Then
        While _IsPressed("01", $hDLL)

is better.

Nothing will press a keyboard key. Send() does not press a key but yeah, it sends it.
Hey !, welcome to coding and becoming grumpy as you train yourself to be "all logic and minimal fun". :P
