Problem with HotKeySet

Recommended Posts

Damein

Hey all, I just started using AutoIt today, I've been a AHK user for a few years so I am not that new to the language.. but the hotkey system is completely different, and even after looking at other scripts I can't seem to get this to work.

Here is the code I have, just to learn what I am doing at first.

HotKeySet("1", "GetCursor")
Func GetCursor()
$MouseID = MouseGetCursor()
MsgBox(0, "Coursor ID", $MouseID)
EndFunc

All I am attempting to do is hook 1 to the func of GetColor. But as soon as I run the script it exits.

Thanks for your help ;)

* EDIT *

So.. I got it using:

HotKeySet("1", "GetCursor")

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func GetCursor()
$MouseID = MouseGetCursor()
MsgBox(0, "Coursor ID", $MouseID)
EndFunc

Do you really have to have something in between the HotKeySet and the func in order for it to run? If so, is that the best thing I could do?

you need a loop to keep your script alive

HotKeySet("1", "GetCursor")

while 1
     Sleep(10)
wend

Func GetCursor()
     $MouseID = MouseGetCursor()
     MsgBox(0, "Coursor ID", $MouseID)
EndFunc
