What I am trying to do is make my character run up 50 steps then down 50 steps repeatedly using the up key and the down key. I know how to utilize system events to push keys and I know how to tell applications to do certain things but what I put together so far is not looking right. I am pretty much new to this, and I am trying to learn a bit, please help!!
You might also add a delay somewhere in the loop to make it easier to stop the script:
activate application "TextEdit" delay 0.5 -- time to release modifier keys if the script is run with a keyboard shortcut tell application "System Events" repeat while name of (process 1 where frontmost is true) is "TextEdit" repeat 50 times key code 126 -- up delay 0.1 end repeat repeat 50 times key code 125 -- down delay 0.1 end repeat delay 0.5 end repeat end tell
See Events.h or my website for the key codes.
