Multiplication

5 posts in this topic

I want to do a task that will find and convert a x sign into a * sign. This is because windows calculator interprets x as exponent, not to multiply. Can someone help with (or even write!) a code snippet so that this will work?

Thanks in advance,

mathpie

Or maybe you mean you want this

hotkeyset("x","convertx")
hotkeyset("X","convertx")


while 1
 sleep(50)
wend

Func convertx()
 send("*")
endfunc

In the future, try to ask more precise questions. Our mind reading ability is, well, limited after all :D
