Hi, I need to know how to enter a key in dos without pressing enter. Ie: at the command prompt the user must press 1 - 5 and as soon as the user presses the number that number automatically goes to the next step.
Hi there Mech. I was looking at some other posts you have helped with... quite a collection going there! Ok, I have a simple "Loop Menu" system here. ============================================= @ECHO OFF :MAINMENU CLS @ECHO Please Make Selection... @ECHO. @ECHO 1. DISPLAY THE NUMBER "1" @ECHO 2. DISPLAY THE NUMBER "2" AND EXIT SET CHOICE= @ECHO. SET /p CHOICE=Type the number to make selection. - IF '%CHOICE%'=='1' GOTO CHOOSE1 IF '%CHOICE%'=='2' GOTO EXIT COLOR 04 CLS @ECHO. @ECHO. ECHO "%CHOICE%" IS NOT VALID, PLEASE TRY AGAIN. PRESS ANY KEY TO RESET... PAUSE>NUL COLOR 07 GOTO MAINMENU :CHOOSE1 CLS @ECHO USER PRESSED "1". PAUSE GOTO END :EXIT CLS @ECHO USER PRESSED "2". PAUSE EXIT :END GOTO MAINMENU =============================================
NOW I KNOW YOU CAN, but please will you incorporate your answer into my menu as I did try, and I failed! Thanks Lee
Hi there, thank you for that. I downloaded Choice.exe and Sleep.exe and bat2exe. Now I can do what I originally wanted, however these days, most people dont want to download exe files as they cant use them on their 'work' computers. So I am going to settle for the user just pressing the selection and then pressing enter. Thank you for your help though. Keep up the good work.
