How to make hotkey use send?

12 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

How can I make it so that when I press the ~ button, it type in a certain character?

It'd just be a lot easier than having to type in a book title over and over again?

I know I have to set it in HotKeySet

But when I add send to the func. It doesn't work

For example if my hotkeyset is a

And my func is

Func a()

Send("New Moon")

End Func

Everytime I press A, it doesn't send New Moon. It doesn't even type A

Why is it so difficult to post an snippet that should work but you have issues with? Posting one Func doesn't tell us diddly. :)

put a exit command in the function. Does it exit the script when you press 'a' with exit in the function?

Func a()
   Send("New Moon")
   exit
EndFunc

this will of course test if your function is called, which I believe it is being called if 'a' is removed from the window's event que - could be wrong terminology but I hope you get the idea.

Dgameman1,

How are you defining your HotKey to action function a()? :)

I know that it calls Func A because when I put a msgbox, it works.

So, for which program does it not work?

Dgameman1,

Q: What do you think happens when your HotKey tries to Send the very key combination you have set as the HotKey? :)

A: It fires the HotKey again! :)

The solution is to unset the HotKey as you enter the function and reset it as you leave. ;)

HotKeySet("a", "a")

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "On_Exit")

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func a()
    HotKeySet("a")
    Send("; ")
    Send("a") ; This "a" will be sent as the HotKey is inactive
    Send(" sent by the Hot Key" & @CRLF)
    HotKeySet("a", "a")
EndFunc

Func On_Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

All clear? ;)
