Send() after hotkey_assign

Recommended Posts

My impression was that the Hotkey UDF library was like an extended version of HotKeySet, with no drawbacks (or at least, none that I can find listed), but I came across a problem when trying to use Send() upon pressing a hotkey.

The following snippet does as I would expect (when "1" is pressed, a "2" registers instead)

HotKeySet("{1}", '_press2')
While 1


Func _press2()

Here's what I believe to be its equivalent using UDF

#Include <HotKey.au3>
#Include <vkConstants.au3>
_HotKey_Assign($VK_1, '_press2')
While 1

Func _press2()

Yet, when I run the 2nd one, nothing happens when I press "1". The function is called correctly, but for some reason Send() doesn't work. If I insert a sleep of at least 200 or so, it sort of works, but I can't have a delay for my purposes.

My end goal is to be able to remap Caps-lock, ESC, and backspace (as well as normal letters) to other keys. Thanks in advance!

I just realized that I can actually set Caps-lock, ESC, and backspace simply using HotKeySet()

But I am still very curious on why hotkey_assign won't work, and I suppose it's possible that I may find a use for it later on.

Hi ymn.

I have the same problem with send - it didnt work correct.

Iam new in this forum because hotkeys ^^.

I am looking for a solution to the problem. - I've got it right.

It works, but i must modify HotKey_20b.au3 to work.

Just wait some time

You do realise that the post above yours is nearly 3 years old and that neither of the earlier posters have been back to the forum since then?  Please do not necro-post like this in future.
