Is it possible to send a value to a function triggered by a HotKeySet?

I tried this at first but it doesn't work.

HotKeySet("q", "q_func(5)")

Func q_func($value)
  $total = $value + 10
  MsgBox(4096,"",$value & " + 10 = " & $total)
endFunc

I altered it a bit like this, some improvement because it at least shows a msgbox with the correct $total but it doesn't wait for me to press the HotKey, it just runs as soon as it reads q_func(5).

HotKeySet("q", q_func(5))

Func q_func($value)
  $total = $value + 10
  MsgBox(4096,"",$value & " + 10 = " & $total)
endFunc

Seems to me it is not possible to send a value to a function directly - at least, I couldn't get it done.

However, you could avoid it by using a second function:

HotKeySet("q", "q_func1")
$total = 0
While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd


Func q_func1()
  q_func2(5)
endFunc

Func q_func2($value)
  $total = $value + 10
  MsgBox(4096,"",$value & " + 10 = " & $total)
endFunc

Stupid, but working :)
