HotKeySet question

4 posts in this topic

I am new to Autoit. I have been playing with the help file, but I am kind of lost.

I am trying to create a new, single key hotkey for the Copy and Paste function (Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V) I would like my script to run say using the F10 to copy and ghe F11 to paste.

Here is what I have so far...

HotKeySet ("{F10}" , ["Ctrl+c"])

HotKeySet ("{F11}" , ["Ctrl+v"])

I think I have the first part set OK, but am having problems with the actual function.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

HotKeySet("{F10}","copy")
HotKeySet("{F11}","paste")
;loop to keep the script alive
While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd
;funcs to match the hotkey second parametar func name
Func copy()
;sending keyes to copy, '^'=CTRL
    Send("^c")
EndFunc

Func paste()
    Send("^v")
EndFunc

a hotkey calls a function, your using the syntax wrong.

HotKeySet("{F1}", "_function") ;whenever you see [these] in the help file it only means its optional, putting the brakets in the script will cause errors.

Func _function() ;function the hotkey calls
    ;function stuff here
EndFunc
