Hot Key Set With Variable

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I apologize for posting this in the wrong forum would someone move it to the correct one for me. Thank you for your help.

I'm trying to use HotKeySet with a variable so that I can set them using an ini file.

I've search this forum and found this post but I could not get it to work with the changes I made to it.

My ini file:

[Defaults]
hkswofa=!
hkswofb=[

My AutoIt Script:

Local $keySETa = iniread(@ScriptDir & "\IniHKSTestConfig.ini", "Defaults", "hkswofa", "NotFound")
Local $keySETb = iniread(@ScriptDir & "\IniHKSTestConfig.ini", "Defaults", "hkswofb", "NotFound")
Local $keySET = '"' & $keySETa & '{' & $keySETb & '}"'
msgbox (0, "ok", $keySET);test to see what is sent
$keyA = HotKeySet($keySET, "_F6_Func")

While 1
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func _F6_Func()
    MsgBox(0, "", "")
EndFunc

The message box displays the correct code but when I test the key combination the function message box does not popup.

How can I set a hot key using a variable that is read from an ini file?

Thank you for your help,

Don't add the quotes:

$keySET = $keySETa & '{' & $keySETb & '}'

Execute( 'HotKeySet($keySET, "_F6_Func")')

Where do I place this in my script?

I've tried it in two different places and they did not work.

First try was like in the variable $keyA:

Local $keySETa = iniread(@ScriptDir & "\IniHKSTestConfig.ini", "Defaults", "hkswofa", "NotFound")
Local $keySETb = iniread(@ScriptDir & "\IniHKSTestConfig.ini", "Defaults", "hkswofb", "NotFound")
Local $keySET = '"' & $keySETa & '{' & $keySETb & '}"'
msgbox (0, "ok", $keySET);test to see what is sent
$keyA = Execute( 'HotKeySet($keySET, "_F6_Func")')



While 1
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func _F6_Func()
    MsgBox(0, "", "")
EndFunc

The second try was below the $keyA variable:

Local $keySETa = iniread(@ScriptDir & "\IniHKSTestConfig.ini", "Defaults", "hkswofa", "NotFound")
Local $keySETb = iniread(@ScriptDir & "\IniHKSTestConfig.ini", "Defaults", "hkswofb", "NotFound")
Local $keySET = '"' & $keySETa & '{' & $keySETb & '}"'
msgbox (0, "ok", $keySET);test to see what is sent
$keyA = HotKeySet($keySET, "_F6_Func")

Execute( 'HotKeySet($keySET, "_F6_Func")')

While 1
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func _F6_Func()
    MsgBox(0, "", "")
EndFunc

Thank you for your help,

What is the point of Execute here? :)

Excuse me, "Execute" is not necessary, really just need to remove the double quotes
