Stop Hot Key functionality

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

What can I do in order Enter will return to its functionality?

Here I wish that when program is active enter will click on Run button, but when it will not be active, enter will retrun to regular functionality

Local $scanU, $enter=1

GUICreate("MyProg",300,300)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter your input:", 30, 50, 120)

$scanU = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 150, 50, 100, 20)

GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)

$btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run", 120, 200, 60, 20)

GUISetState()

If WinActive("[CLASS:AutoIt v3 GUI]") Then

HotKeySet("{ENTER}", "_FuncEnter")

Else

$enter=0

EndIf

$msg = 0

While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

Select

Case $msg = $btn

...

EndSelect

WEnd

Func _FuncEnter()

ControlClick ( "MyProg", "Run", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]" )

EndFunc

Thanks a lot for all your help!

Noa

autoitquestion,

Look at GUISetAccelerators in the Help file. Accelerator keys act in a similar manner to HotKeys, but only when your GUI is active. :)

Try to get them working and come back if you run into problems. :)

You could fallow Melba23 advice , or you could do it this way ( but is uglier ) :

$dll = DllOpen("user32.dll")

...

While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
If _IsPressed("0D", $dll) and WinActive("[CLASS:AutoIt v3 GUI]") Then 
_FuncEnter()
Endif
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
Case $msg = $btn
...
EndSelect
WEnd

...

DllClose($dll

Just a question. The event about this stopping the functionality of the hotkeys is DLL closing?

If so, this means I can stop and call back in Hotkey working/not working at will while executing the various steps of a script by dll opening and closing?

Newb,

I think you have misunderstood. :)

The code you reposted uses _IsPressed to detect ENTER being pressed. As it says in the Help file, you should open/close user32.dll if you call the function repeatedly - which Azraelsub7 correctly did.

Doing this has no effect on HotKeys. You turn them off by setting them with no function name - and back on by setting them with a valid function name.

All clear? :)

No i don't think so , i think DllClose is probably the some kind implementation for freelibrary , so you can even delete that line and the code will still work , but is better to use it as i don't know if the autoit interpreter does the clean up .

So DllClose is used cause _ispressed is calling the getasynckey form user32.dll .

Basically what you do is asking continuously the Operating System if that key is pressed , normally a sleep command must exist in the loop , else autoit will use a lot of cpu , anyway the sleep time must not be to great cause you will miss when the key is pressed , 100 milliseconds is a good choise , but i do not like to use getasynckey cause it has a lot of disadvantages , mostly you can use hooks , some languages have build in Key Pressed events , i think using events is a better way then using getasynckey function .
