Keystroke Broadcasting question

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am a little new to these forums but have been using auto it for a while. I wanted to ask if it was possible to hook or broadcast keystrokes to other open windows like if I had 3 notepads open it would type whatever the key that has been typed to them. This would be like a hardware device that would allow one keyboard to control more then one computer but in a software type fashion. Is there any special commands i would be looking for? I have taken a look at the help and functions page but nothing really that would allow it in a easy way with out having to code in all individual functions to do all the task at hand. Just thought I would ask before going and doing it.

Thanks, Mutebox

I would suggest using HotKeySet() to create a hotkey for each button press, then on the press of a hotkey your script can perform a ControlSend() to multiple windows.
