Quick Auto-It Question

3 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I've just recently started using auto-it, trying to make some scripts for various things. I have been reading the help file for the most part to learn more about the commands in this language. One thing I cannot seem to find is this:

Basically I want a key to be pressed down for a certain number of seconds. This is what I tried to come up with, but I have tested it multiple times and I cannot seem to figure it out:

send("{UP down}")

sleep(5000)

send("{UP up}")

When I execute that it seems as if it is just pressing the "UP" key down then immediately releasing it.

Any help with this would be much apprciated.

Thank you.

Use Opt() to set a delay. The UP key does not have a natural down state like a SHIFT key can have.

Opt('SendKeyDownDelay', 5000)
Send('{UP}')
Opt('SendKeyDownDelay', 1)oÝ÷ Úî²)ài@Ŷ©¥êâ~ëu©hµ«­¢+Ù}-å½Ý¸ ÌäííUAôÌäì°ÔÀÀÀ¤()Õ¹}-å½Ý¸ ÀÌØí­ä°ÀÌØíÑ¥µ¤(%=ÁÐ ÌäíM¹-å½Ý¹±äÌäì°ÀÌØíÑ¥µ¤(%M¹ ÀÌØí­ä¤(%=ÁÐ ÌäíM¹-å½Ý¹±äÌäì°Ä¤)¹Õ¹
