returning the key pressed....ie. "The Enter Key"

Recommended Posts


here is what i have

#include <misc.au3>
WinActivate("Untitled - Notepad")

                For $ct = 8 To 165
                    $hex = Hex($ct, 2)
                    ConsoleWrite($ct & "  Hex " & $hex & @LF)
                    While _IsPressed($hex)
                        $keydown += 1
                        If $keydown > 100 Then
                            MsgBox(262144 + 64, "KEYSTUCK", $hex, 0)

i know the long winded way for creating an array with all the key strokes in it, and returing the match.... NOT the Hex but the actual KEY as in easy read terms, "The Space Bar" , "The Left Control Key", etc.

But is there a quicker way.....

Use the _IsPressed function

You can use my MiscConstants UDF to make it easier,


#Include <Misc.au3> ;needed to use the _IsPressed function
#Include "MiscConstants.au3" ;udf if you want to use the pre-defined constants

;enter without MiscConstants UDF, Key gotten from help file entry

;enter with MiscConstants UDF, Keys are pretty obvious but can be looked up in the AU3 file if necicary
