Help with send() function

Recommended Posts

crest

Hey guys,

im once again in need of your help.

global $var = "{F3}"

send("{"$var"}")

i wanted to store a Keyboard-button in the variable $var, so that its easier to use/change the send()-function whenever i want this button ( F3 ) to be pressed in the active window.

Yet im getting an Error-message right at this point.

Errormessage:

send("{"$var"}")

send(^ ERROR

error: error in expression

And since im rather new to autoit and programming i dont know the right syntax to make this work :whistle:

Hope, someone can help me

well, first,

send("{"$var"}")

if $var is {F3} then you end up sending {{F3}}, which I'm assuming you don't want. remove the brackets from $var = "{F3}"

Second, you need to seperate string and variables with the & symbol.

send("{"$var"}")

should be

send("{" & $var & "}")

you're welcome :whistle:
