Adding a syntax wrapper

Recommended Posts

rophl

Sorry if this question has been asked before, but how do I add a wrapper to the interpreter so I can change the syntax autoit accepts?

Basically, I want autoit to treat

{F2}::
{code and so on}

the same as

HotKeySet("{F2}",DummyFunc)
Func DummyFunc()
    code and so on
EndFunc

rophi,

First, welcome to the AutoIt forum. :mellow:

You are not really saving a lot of typing in your example. Have you thought of using SciTE abbreviations to produce a template for your code? I use one such abbreviation to write a bunch of standard HotKeys with just 4 keystrokes. If you use the abbreviations cleverly, I would bet that they could reduce your typing as much as your projected wrapper. :(

thanks, these sort of work well enough to do what I wanted.

Second question: is it all possible to bind a hotkey to something like Ctrl+MouseClick?

rophl,

What have you tried?

I would have thought this would do what you want:

HotKeySet("a", "_My_Function")

Func _My_Function()
    Send("{CTRLDOWN}")
    MouseClick{"primary")
    Send("CTRLUP}")
EndFunc

But I have not tested it myself.

No I meant something like: HotKeySet("{LCTRL}"&"{MOUSECLICK}","FuncName")

rophl,

Search for the MouseOnEvent UDF - I think it was by MrCreator. That UDF, together with _IsPressed, should do what you want. :mellow:
