_IsPressed

24 posts in this topic

Hey,

I wanted to know if there was a way to do that.

I have a _IsPressed in a While loop.

But I have this problem. When the key is pressed, it detects that the key has been pressed 6-7 times (because of the time it takes to release the key).

Is there a way to know only when the key is really pressed? Not hold down.

Maybe detect when it's pressed, then wait for it to be released then pressed again to detect it again... or i don't know.

Help plz

There is a timer on that function i think..

i toyed with it at some stage, it lets you choose how many MS to detect for or something like that.

i cant find it in the helpfile at the moment, its not painstakingly obvious.. but i am sure its there.

Either way, if it is to run a function when a certain key is pressed, try using HotKeySet() instead, its usually a lot easier.

Can we see the script? That would help, also there is no delay choice for IsPressed.

#Include <Misc.au3>

_IsPressed ( $s_hexKey [, $v_dll = 'user32.dll' ] )

Parameters

$s_hexKey key to check for

$v_dll Optional: Handle to dll or default to user32.dll

While 1
If _IsPressed("23", $dll) Then
; Do whatever here.
    EndIf

WEnd

kk, first i use _IsPressed because I need to use it, I know there is hotkeys but I need to use _IsPressed

And for the code, well there isn't any for the moment. I'm just trying to make that work.

While 1
If _IsPressed("23") Then
run(@ScriptDir& "/prog1.au3")
WEnd

But it opens the prog1 like 4-6 times when I hit the key.

Maybe a workaround as follows works. It will do something only the first time that _isPressed is triggered.

$keyHasBeenPressed = 0
While 1
    If _IsPressed(<key>) Then 
        If $keyHasBeenPressed = 0 Then
            ; Do Ya Thang
        EndIf
        $keyHasBeenPressed = 1
    EndIf
    
    If Not _IsPressed(<key>) Then $keyHasBeenPressed = 0
WEnd

Add a sleep in a Do..until loop, because whats happening is you are holding the pressed button in for such a time that it loops several times through before you release. This should hold it in a seperate loop so that it must be released to continue.

While 1
    If _IsPressed(23) then
        ;Whatever
        Do
            Sleep(100)
        Until Not _IsPressed(23)
    EndIf
WEnd

First>>> I could have told you that 30 years ago

Second>>> It IS in the help file. Take a look in Appendix>Ascii Codes

Not under _IsPressed... open helpfile, go to contents then appendix and then ASCII characters

I know, but, like you said, it is not in the _IsPressed helpfile page

I think that that list should be pitched and replaced with a link to the appendix.

That way we don't need a list thats 300 miles long on the _IsPressed Page but is still incomplete.

That would be nice, and it would avoid situations like these...

I found that this error trap for _IsPressed works:

Ant..

CODE
;

#include <Misc.au3>

$dll = DllOpen("user32.dll")

While 1

sleep(50)

If _IsPressed('11', $dll) And _IsPressed('2E', $dll) then

sleep(50);hit the keys once

$PID = ProcessExists("yourchoice.exe")

If $PID then ProcessClose($PID)

Do; hold the keys

$PID = ProcessExists("yourchoice.exe")

If $PID then ProcessClose($PID)

Sleep(100)

Until Not _IsPressed('11', $dll)

$i = 0

Do; press the keys more than once

$i = $i + 1

$PID = ProcessExists("yourchoice.exe")

If $PID then ProcessClose($PID)

sleep(100)

Until $i = 100

Msgbox(0,"","Yourchoice Disabled",1)

EndIf

WEnd

ispressed does work with [ ]

some other keys that may or not be of use with ispressed

BA: ;

BB: =

BC: ,

BD: -

BE: .

BF: /

C0: `

DB: [

DC: \

DD: ]

cheers

Funny how looking @ AutoIt Help file under ASCII Character Codes doesn't match what I've posted..

From help file:

; 3b Semicolon (does not work for me with _IsPressed , ba does work for me)

Am I reading the wrong part of the help file, or am I not translating 3b to ba by some form of formula that I missed ?

Is there a way to make those work ( BE, BF, DC, etc.) ??? Using another dll, or I don't know.
