HotKeySet Help

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a HotKeySet read from a combo box (drop down menu). I can't get it to read the key in the combo box though.

Here is the code I am trying...

$keyselect1 = GuiCtrlCreateCombo("Select Key", 60, 50, 100, 22)
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"{HOME}|{END}")

$key = GUICtrlRead($keyselect1)

HotKeySet($key,"start")

Thanks.

ahh .. yes 30 minutes is slow isn't it.... :(

Maybe your posted example isn't very clear...

You want to use a hotkey which will start func Start() but no code is shown.

It helps in general if you post a small but working script that shows your issue...

Sorry for bumping so soon :(

Anyhow, the code I have works fine if I just have the HotKeySet name as {HOME} and not as $key...

Example:

HotKeySet("{HOME}","start")

When I try and add the variable... $key ...nothing happens. I want it to read from my combo box and have the key from the combo box be in place of where "{HOME}" is on the HotKeySet.

Here is the code I used again...

$keyselect1 = GuiCtrlCreateCombo("Select Key", 60, 50, 100, 22)
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"{HOME}|{END}")

$key = GUICtrlRead($keyselect1)

HotKeySet($key,"start")

Maybe you need to use :

GUICtrlSetData(-1,"{HOME}|{END}","{HOME}")

To set the default selection to {Home} ?

Ok, that worked for {HOME} key, but now when I choose {END} from the combo box, it is still set on {HOME} for the HotKeyset. I don't know why it won't change to {END} when it is set on it?

well, that works like any other gui...

something like:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$keyselect1 = GuiCtrlCreateCombo("Select Key", 60, 50, 100, 22)
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"{HOME}|{END}")

$key = GUICtrlRead($keyselect1)

HotKeySet($key,"start")

GUISetState ()

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $keyselect1 Then 
        $key = GUICtrlRead($keyselect1)
        HotKeySet($key,"start")
    EndIf
    
Wend

That sort of works. Now what happens is...

Say you select the {HOME} key. It will work.

Then you will select the {END} key, and that will work... Along with the {HOME} key!!!

I want it so when either one or the other key is selected, only the one will make the function work. Any ideas? Thanks for all the help so far JdeB :(

This removes the hotkey for home :

HotKeySet("{HOME}")

I think you'll get it from there..

You have to unregister the function from the hotkey

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Func start()
    MsgBox(0, "test", "success!")
EndFunc


GUICreate("My GUI"); will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$keyselect1 = GuiCtrlCreateCombo("Select Key", 60, 50, 100, 22)
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"HOME|END")

$key = GUICtrlRead($keyselect1)

HotKeySet($key,"start")

GUISetState ()

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $keyselect1 Then
        $key = GUICtrlRead($keyselect1)
        HotKeySet("{HOME}")
        HotKeySet("{END}")
        HotKeySet("{" & $key & "}","start")
    EndIf
    
Wend
