Question about Running a Script

Recommended Posts

jbh5000

Forgive me if this is a basic question, but I cannot seem to find the answer.

I need to have a script which runs when I press CTRL+P.

So for example, nothing is running or open on my machine and I want to be able to press CRTL+P and have the script start.

Is there a way to do this?

Or do I need to write a script that runs all the time that includes a hotkey for CTRL+P and then have that hotkey call a function from the script? Or is there a better way to make ascript start on demand?

Thanks in advance.

Two ways I know of.

1.) as you said, you have a script listening for a key sequence - see HotKeySet()

2.) Using a shortcut, you can a shortcut key that windows listens to. That would be a shortcut to your compiled exe.


Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y.
