send out ascii code

May 23, 2013 | 7:32 am

Hi

Im looking for a way to create ascii code in my max patch and then send it out to other programs im running at the time.

i.e looking for a way to simulate typing or keystrokes – press a bang and the patch types a sentence in word for instance. All the googling i have done so far keeps bringing me back to arduino. I was wondering if there was a way to do this with just Max.

Any help would be hugely appreciated

Cheers

Hi

I used the aka.keyboard object and it worked straight off.

Thanks for the help!
