Using a number as a hotkey?

Recommended Posts

I have learned a lot reading around on this forum, however, I am having trouble getting this script to work with a number set as the triggering hotkey. It works perfectly if I use a letter or function key, and I would like to bind it to non-keypad numbers.

Error I am getting upon running this script is 'Line 10...func 5() Error:Badly formatted "func" statement."

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Global $a

HotKeySet("5", "5")

While 1




Func 5()







;MsgBox(32, "a", "a")

From the Help file:

"Function names must start with either a letter or an underscore, and the remainder of the name can contain any combination of letters and numbers and underscores"

Does that make it clearer? :)
