Hotkeys?


Recommended Posts

Guest mechman

Hey folks. I just recently got into programming with AutoIt, and frankly, I'm more then impressed with its simplicity for its abilities. Anyways, I have a simple question. I would like to know how to trigger a command loop with a hotkey .. example, I have a loop to click a spot every 5 seconds, but I want to beging that loop once someone presses "Ctrl + E" or something like that. The same with pausing the loop as well, enabling it to start again once needed with the same hotkey. I hope you understand what I mean. Much thanks!

Change the placement of the mouse to suit you, and you might want to add one more while in the loop.

AdlibEnable("pause"); this keeps running at all times till you exit.

HotKeySet("^e","pauseset"); uses the CTRL+e key to change the value of $Pause
$Pause = -1

sleep(500)
While 1
 mousemove(100,100,0)
 mouseclick("left")
 sleep(1000) ; sleep for 1 second before repeating
Wend

Func pauseset()
   $Pause = $Pause * -1
EndFunc

Func pause()
   While $Pause = -1
        Sleep(500)
   Wend
EndFunc

You might want it only to click if the active window is up

if winactive("MyProgram") then mouseclick("left",1,1,1,1)
