in script language auto it 3

there is this command

send ( "string haha!")

that would automaitcally send exact string to the keyboard.

not only that, if I try

send ( "i" ) in a game,  it would also then prompt the game to do whatever that is done by pressing "i"



however, when I do this



void output ( string string1 )
{
      int size = string1.size();

      for (int i = 0; i < size; ++i)
      {
         BYTE vk = LOBYTE(::MapVirtualKey(string1[i], 0));
 
         keybd_event(VkKeyScan(string1[i]),vk,0,0);
         keybd_event(VkKeyScan(string1[i]),vk,KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
      }
     
}




it would only send "i" to the chat window, if the cursor were focused there, but not if i want the game to press "i"


how do I do what I can do with auto it 3 in c++?

As I wrote in your other Q, that is a matter of which window currently has the focus. You need to use 'SetActiveWindow()' from your code to set the focus to the window that should receive the keypress.

Then, you need to do that using code. AutoIt uses the same means.
