    sendkey question

    I am attempting to make a skin for the pandora.com which is mostly flash. If the flash is focused keyboard right will skip to the next track and space will pause/play. I would like to map some skin buttons to send keys to the flash object.
    Is this possible? I tried SENDKEY;{RIGHT} but it's not getting to the flash.
    Thanks

    yes it is possible, you need to activate the flash window first, i use something like this in my pandora plugin. i use the flash player activeX, to control and embed the pandora player.

    Code:
    "ACTIVATE;!MacromediaFlashPlayerActiveX1||SENDKEY;{right}"

    It's not working for me. It doesn't seem to be activating the flash window. Is it always named the same?

    I downloaded your skin to check out your pandora plugin. I can't get the pandora.exe to work. It gives me a line -1 error.
    Do you still have the autoit script?
    I found a program called open pandroa which supports key stroke input but it's an older pandora flash player version. It doesn't look like it's in development anymore either.
    So I got the idea to download the pandora swf file and try an embed it into RR. It embeds but it doesn't connect properly and gives an error. I guess it needs to be run off their servers.

    That is so awesome! I have been trying to find a good solution for pandora for a year. Now I can even map my steering wheel controls using ibusRR to control Pandora.
