combining variables with HotKeySet...

Recommended Posts

guysmilie

I am trying to use variables with HotKeySet. Say the code looks like this:

$hotkey1 = ^

$hotkey2 = {PGDN}

HotKeySet($hotkey1$hotkey2, "FUNCTIONNAME")

When I try to run this I get an "error in expression" message for the HotKeySet line. It works if I use just one variable, but when I combine the two variables I get the error. I looked in the help file and searched "combining variables" in the forum, but did not find the answer.

Thanks very much to anyone who can offer suggestions/advice.

Guy.

This should work:

$hotkey1 = "^{PGDN}"
HotKeySet($hotkey1, "FUNCTIONNAME")
Sleep(20000)
Exit

Func FUNCTIONNAME()
  MsgBox(0,"","Hotkey pressed")
  Exit
EndFunc

Variables are combined with the & symbol.

For example:

$hotkey1 = "^"
$hotkey2 = "{PGDN}"

HotKeySet($hotkey1 & $hotkey2, "FUNCTIONNAME")
