Java programmer with question

Recommended Posts



I am a java programmer in college right now in my senior year so I have an idea on how programming works. However I am not familiar with any functions that auto-it offers with the windows api let alone working with windows api directly.

Where do I look up or can someone be kind enough to tell me what type of function/code will I need to write to simulate a key being held down, or the mouse being held down. I have it where it sends a key stroke but I want it to act as if it were holding the key or mouse keys down. The only way i could think of now is to write a for loop that iterates for an extended period but that is inefficient to what I want to accomplish.

Additionally, where would I look or set the mouse pointer to a pixel on the screen.

Thanks for your time and help.

Welcome to the forum! Glad to help.

Have you downloaded the full AutoIt Suite? If so, take a look at the following commands - (the help file is really well laid out in answering just about any question..)


Send - look at the {SHIFTDOWN} area of the list of keys.
