Send key press

Apr 21 2010 | 7:10 pm

Hello everybody,

I’m quite new to max, but here’s the situation.
I know how to handle received key presses in max, but is there a way to send them out as well, to simulate the pressing of the actual keyboard?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A search of the forum might be in order – this question comes up a lot. I’ve never actually needed or wanted to do this but I think there’s a java/javascript approach called autobot, or something similar – do a quick search and you should come up with an answer…

yep search for "mxj autobot"

does a whole ton of potentially eeeeevil things.

Wondering why some of these functions aren’t built into Max, like a [keypress] object or something? Maybe it’s too dangerous?? :)
