[general Q] the ways of converting numbers to keystrokes

February 5, 2010 | 7:06 am

hi,
just a general question, after reading the archives for a bit it seems the only way to generate keystrokes (i.e. cmd-c, cmd-y etc) as completely in max as possible, is to use the [shell] object plus applescript and osascript. is this still the case? ideally i’d like to use a midi controller to do things like cut and paste, etc. (no i don’t want to use an external applications for this).
regards,,

er, javascript would be better than the above mentioned, is it possible in javascipt?

It’s not possible via JavaScript either. You might want to have try Masayuki’s aka.keyboard.

There is a java class that does this somewhere on the forum, if I remember right it is called "autobot".
