Getting The Last Key Pressed.

Recommended Posts

Christopher Blue

I need to get the last key pressed in a form that is compatible with Send(). For instance it must differentiate between 1 and {numpad1}.

Even if I cannot differentiate it would be nice if there was a way to wait for any key to be pressed. I know of _IsPressed but I am hoping there is an easier and less strenuous way then waiting for any in a huge list of keys to be pressed.

Here's some code for you:

A UDF that waits for a keypress then returns it.

;;;A UDF
#include <Misc.au3>
Func _WaitForKeypress()
   While 1
      For $c = 8 To 165
         If _IsPressed($c) Then 
            Return($c)
         EndIf
      Next
      Sleep(20)
   WEnd
EndFunc

A UDF that waits for keypresses and mouseclicks then returns it:

Func _WaitForKeypressOrClick()
   While 1
      For $c = 1 To 165
         If _IsPressed($c) Then 
            Return($c)
         EndIf
      Next
      Sleep(20)
   WEnd
EndFunc

Array of keycodes:
