Help - Send {"Escape"}

12 posts in this topic

I am trying to get my script to send the escape key, but I also have a hotkey set for escape key.

here is the relevant portion of my script.

-----

HotKeySet("{ESCAPE}", "Escape")

Func Escape()

$Escape = True

$HasSentEscape = True

Send ("{ESCAPE}")

EndFunc

-----

I want the script to set those variables and then proceed to send the Escape key as if it was not absorbed by the hotkey.

But when I try this it goes into an infinite loop and crashes. Any suggestions how I could do this, would be greatly appreciated.

A work-around I can do is make the Escape hotkey be Shift+Escape, but that's rather more of a pain in the ass, then just quickly tapping the Escape key is. So I would like to be able to do it like this, if it's possible.

Thanks in advance for any tips,

RiCK

_IsPressed()

Hi chip, thanks for you answer, that looks like it might be what I was looking for, I looked it up in the autoit help and got this:

---

#include <Misc.au3>

$dll = DllOpen("user32.dll")

While 1

Sleep ( 250 )

If _IsPressed("23", $dll) Then

MsgBox(0,"_IsPressed", "End Key Pressed")

ExitLoop

EndIf

WEnd

DllClose($dll)

---

Could you show me how I would use that to my benefit with what I am trying to accomplish? thanks! :-D

I've already read through all that before ever coming to ask in a forum, common sence would tell one to consult the instructions before asking for help. but thanks anyways for your poke.

It wasn't a "poke", I misread what you wrote.

EndIf

Hi, I put this in my script, but it's not seeming to detect the Escape press now at all, just passing it to the program.

---

#include <Misc.au3>

While 1

If $CloseGUI = "CLOSE" Then ExitLoop

If _IsPressed("1b") Then

;If _IsPressed("{ESCAPE}") Then

$Escape = True

$HasSentEscape = True

EndIf

sleep(10)

Wend

Also tried replacing 1b with Escape, but still nothing. Any idea why it's not working? Thanks again for the ideas though! Appreciated!

EDIT: I'm thinking maybe the gui='close' is messing with it since the gui is actually closed at this point.

Am I able to have more than one While 1 Wend statement in a single script?

Thanks again!

Absolutely! You can have as many as you want, you can even have loops within loops, example:

While 1
    While 1
        $msgbox = Msgbox(4,"","This loop will continue forever" & @CRLF & "However, if you press YES, we will view the second msgbox" & @CRLF & "But it will loop back to this after.")
        If $msgbox = 6 Then;If user selects YES
            ExitLoop ;Exit the loop
        EndIf
    WEnd
    Msgbox(0,"","Unfortunately, you can only view me once everytime you press YES on the other msgbox")
WEnd

To send a char that is assigned to a Hotkey use this

HotKeySet("{ESC}")
Send("{ESC}")
HotKeySet("{ESC}","YourFunc")
