HotKeySet Source Code

9 posts in this topic

...or at least see if I can.

Does anyone know where I can find the HotKeySet source code? I've tried looking in multiple places but can't seem to find it. Maybe it's not available?

acksonm1234,

What exactly do you want to change? There might be a way to do it in AutoIt. :graduated:

Well I was hoping to modify it so that I could specify a application context that the hotkey would work under. For example,

hotkeyset("!d", "MyFunction", "Untitled - Notepad")

Which would theoretically make it so that hotkey only worked when the active window is "untitled - notepad".

I looked at the source but it looks like its too much trouble to fight with right now.

I know some guy (Yashied?) made his own hotkey UDF with similar functionality, but I didn't like his implementation. BUT, it appears that is my only option at this point.

jacksonm1234,

Go and look at GUISetAccelerators in the Help file - like HotKeys but they only work in the app in which they are declared.

Sounds just what you are looking for! :graduated:

I don't know where I got this from but I used something similar in my media player, more to see if it would work rather than because it works better than accelerator keys.

Global $f_HotKeyEnabled = False
Run("Notepad")
While ProcessExists("Notepad.exe")
    If WinActive("[CLASS:Notepad]") Then
        If Not $f_HotKeyEnabled Then
            $f_HotKeyEnabled = True
            HotKeySet("^x", "Paste")
        EndIf
    Else
        If $f_HotKeyEnabled Then
            $f_HotKeyEnabled = False
            HotKeySet("^x")
        EndIf
    EndIf
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
Func Paste()
    Send("abcdefghjklmnopqrstuvwxyz {Enter}")
EndFunc

What this does is that it sets the hotkey CTRL-x only when the Notepad window is active and as soon as it's not active it unsets the CTRL-X hotkey. When it's set if you hit CTRL-X it will Send the letters of the alphabet to Notepad, and does nothing when Notepad isn't the active window.

You can get Source Code for an older version of AutoIt by following this link

I seem to see only the source for up until version 3.1.0 listed there...any other resources I should look to, or perhaps I'm not seeing the right thing? Is there a repository somewhere?

I'm trying to find the source for GUICtrlCreateObj to port it to Ruby :)

Thanks!

Autoit is no longer open source, so what you see is what you get.
