Recommended Posts


hello agian,

im using HotKeySet() function to run part of my program when i press 'G' it runs the code i set it to do fine. but when i want to type in my edit box (good) but the 'G' is still been held by HotKeySet() function is there a way to unset the key afterwards? after it has run its bit of code?

i used thr help file to get to work but i cant find any thing to make it let go afterwards

Suggestion: Engage brain before posting! :(

joboy2k is absolutely correct - read the Help file:

HotKeySet ( "key" [, "function"] )


key The key combination to use as the hotkey. Same format as Send().

function [optional] The name of the function to call when the key is pressed. Not specifying this parameter will unset a previous hotkey.

So to unset a HotKey you do exactly as joboy2k told you - although I would use lower-case letters myself. :mellow:


Edit: Added case suggestion.
