2 Different Keystrokes 1 Script

9 posts in this topic

hi,

i got a really easy question for you guys:

how can i put 2 different key-combinations together in one script so that they will be executed alternately?

i want my desktop to be turnt by 90° using Send("^!{LEFT}") and then if i run the script for the second time to undo the turn by turning my dektop another 90° in the opposite direction using Send("^!{UP}"). so i know the two commands to turn the desktop, but i have no idea how to connect them in one script.

please help me =)

hmm, i have a convertible netbook... when i need this script, my keyboard is usually covered by the screen. so hotkeys are not really better tha hitting the combination.

i wanted to compile the script to .exe and deposit this file somwhere on the desktop where i can klick it with the stylus. at the moment i always have to lift the screen a bit to hit the combination. it would be an improvement to have two .exe files to rotate the desktop (which is that easy that i can do it myself ;P) but there has to be a possibility to get it into one, no?

Gui maybe?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Gui = GUICreate('',180,60,@DesktopWidth -184, @DesktopHeight -120)
$b1 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Tilt /L',0,0,88,60)
$b2 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Tilt /B',88,0,88,60)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
WinSetOnTop($Gui,'',1)
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    if $msg = $b1 Then
        TiltLeft()
    endif
        if $msg = $b2 Then
        TiltBack()
    endif
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then
        Exit
    EndIf
WEnd

Func TiltLeft()
    Send("^!{Left}")
EndFunc

Func TiltBack()
    Send("^!{UP}")
EndFunc

ok does work thank you =D

it's not what i expected, but nevertheless very useful. im wondering whether there is really no easier solution than creating GUI ?! something like a icon which tilts the desktop and sets a variable. and if i run the script the sencond time the variable causes another rotation.

I assume that when the desktop is rotated the desktop dimensions are changed so then you could just have

If @DesktopWidth > @DesktopHeight Then
    TiltLeft()
Else
    TiltBack()
EndIf


Func TiltLeft()
    Send("^!{Left}")
EndFunc

Func TiltBack()
    Send("^!{UP}")
EndFunc

Well I was assuming Turnleft meant rotate 90 degrees like on a phone say or on monitors which can be used in portrait or landscape. If it means 180 degrees then it's no help at all, so you could have a little ini file

$inifile = @AppDataDir & "\ScreenBits\Rotation.ini"

If IniRead($iniFile,"Screen","Rotation","Back") = "Back" then
 TiltLeft()
Else
 TiltBack()
EndIf


Func TiltLeft()
 Send("^!{Left}")
 IniWrite($iniFile,"Screen","Rotation","Left")
EndFunc

Func TiltBack()
 Send("^!{UP}")
 IniWrite($iniFile,"Screen","Rotation","Back")
EndFunc

EDIT: Um, I see the OP did specify 90 degrees, so what was wrong with my first attempt?
