Hey there. New user here.

I have managed to get (through searching here ) how to make a key repeat but I am having trouble getting the key to stop repeating always at an even number.

So I was wondering if anyone could help me? Essentially I think it would be something like

Repeat x
If x = OddNumber
+1

Many thanks! If anyone can help I will buy a virtual beer!

Depending on what you need it could be this simple
```\$a::

while GetKeyState("a","P")

{

Send a

Sleep 100

send a ;send the key an even number of times on each loop

Sleep 100

}

Return```

Hi there. Thanks for the reply!

I essentially want this code but instead of LControl I want the key V to be repeating the 1 pkey but always end on an even number of presses
```\$LControl::
send {LControl}
sleep 610
Loop
{
GetKeyState, state, LControl, P
if state = U
break
Sleep 150
send 1
}
return```

```\$LControl::
send {LControl}
sleep 610
Loop
{
GetKeyState, state, LControl, P
if state = U
break
Sleep 150
send 1
Sleep 150
send 1
}
return```
If you put the send twice the loop will always end on a even number

You can also use the Mod() function on the A_Index value in a loop to check if the loop count is odd or even as well. If the index is even, you simply break if it's odd you do one more send and break. If it's just a hold-down-this-key-spammer, then you have to do the counting for each send and Mod() that counter instead of A_Index.
