Quick Question

6 posts in this topic

You know that nasty sticky keys window that pops up whenever you press shift, alt or ctrl more than 5 times consecutively?Yea..well..I'm trying to play Alladin and shift=jump..now that game is ALL about jumping around :)..And I keep getting switched off the game and into the damn window..I've tried disabling it through windows..I'm kind of looking for a temp. solution till I email Microsloth and tell them what a shitty feature they have..Thing is I've made a lil proggie to kill it and return me tot the game..(the process is classname=#32770 which is the same with taskmanager..I dunno why..maybe some strange coincidence..it also seems that it breaks any other program..just like a ctrl+alt+del..)

Infinite loop
If <annoying_window> exists then
Kill it()
Return me to the game();That's an Send("{ALT}{TAB}");
end if
End infinite loop

Right..so what's the problem?It keeps finding the annoying window ALL THE TIME..:evil:..Should I do a title search?I *think* classname=#32770 gives hundreds of matches..:D..and that could be why it doesn't correctly identify it..And the thing is, the proggie can't kill it..because it keeps detecting it, "killing it", then alt+tab..etc..what could be wrong?Can anyone come up with a WORKING script or a permanent solution?

Can anyone come up with a WORKING script or a permanent solution?

Most windows have a class name of #32770 so you would want to match by class and another criterion. But really, there's no need to script a solution -- once they're disabled (or just their activation shortcuts) you won't have a problem. Edited by LxP

Well how do I fix the problem?:)..5 consecutive shifts bring up the window REGARDLESS if I disable Sticky Keys or not..it's kind of like asking you if you've changed your mind..it's "kind of" driving me insane X-(

Does your "annoying_window" have a specific title? Could use the If WinExist() if so I would think.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

How are you disabling it? This is how I've done it and I haven't had problems with it still popping up:

Control Panel > Accessibility; untick all 'Use xxxKeys' boxes. Alternatively if you wish to use them without the activation shortcut then click each Settings button and deselect the 'Use shortcut' options.
