You can do this using ControlSend. Read the helpfile for more information. :)

I've tried this but i dont get it to work

but i'l try to explane better...

If i have the Spotify (music program) window active on the screen and push the buttons: Ctrl+{Right} then it changes song...

but when i have another window open/Active this hotkey does not work..

And i want this hotkey to work even do i have another window open..

ive tried the Controlsend, but i just do not get it to work :S

Does the titel of your musicplayer change, when another song is playing? And can you maybe post some code?

Yes i changes for each song

Hotkeyset ("^{RIGHT}","Right")

while 1

sleep (10)

wend

Func Right ()

ControlSend("Spotify", "", "", "^{LEFT}")

EndFunc

So if it changes, you cant just use "spotify" as its title, or am i wrong? :)

Every post you make is "How do I do this"....

I don't think anyone's going to write it for you.

Hotkeyset ("^{RIGHT}","Right")


while 1
sleep (10)
wend

Func Right ()

$a = ControlSend("Spotify", "", "", "^{LEFT}")
msgbox(0, '', $a)
EndFunc

if $a = 0 then the window title is wrong...

Hmm, i got it to work to some degree...

it changes the song but it seems like it holds Ctrl in, so it is imposible to do anything else on the computer..??

and the "Space" Func does not work!?!, i dont know why...

and the "Up"/"Down" Func is ment to adjust the volume, but i cant just hold the Ctrl button, i must push the button for each step.. why so?

Hotkeyset ("^{RIGHT}","Right")

Hotkeyset ("^{LEFT}","Left")

Hotkeyset ("^{UP}","Up")

Hotkeyset ("^{DOWN}","Down")

Hotkeyset ("^{SPACE}","space")

while 1

sleep (10)

wend

Func Right ()

$a = ControlSend("Spotify", "", "", "^{RIGHT}")

EndFunc

Func Left ()

$b = ControlSend("Spotify", "", "", "^{LEFT}")

EndFunc

Func Up ()

$c = ControlSend("Spotify", "", "", "^{UP}")

EndFunc

Func Down ()

$d = ControlSend("Spotify", "", "", "^{DOWN}")

EndFunc

Func Space ()

$e = ControlSend("Spotify", "", "", "{SPACE}")

EndFunc

Is not that better than writing "Bump" in a new post?

You can add additional function or the same lines in every function to loop until the ctrl key is released.

#include <Misc.au3>
$hDll = DllOpen('user32.dll')
;....
;....

Func OnAutoItExit()
    DllClose($hDll)
EndFunc

Func CtrlRelease()
     While _IsPressed('11', $hDll)
           Sleep(50)
     WEnd
EndFunc

Func Hoyre ()
     CtrlRelease()
     $a = ControlSend("Spotify", "", "", "^{right}")
EndFuncoÝ÷ Úò¢çǧuËkêr¢êìçÚºÚ"µÍÙ[
