Help with keybinding (_ispressed) combo

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

back again to AutoIt after a while...

I have a minimal problem I need to solve.

I'm building a tool that will run an application with just an "hotkeyset".

But, since there is another application (geolocalization of water infrastructures) running that uses customizable shortcuts, I want to let user choose a personal key.

So, brutally this is the idea (and it works perfectly)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <HotKeyInput.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
$dll = DllOpen("user32.dll")
Global $Form, $HKI1, $HKI2, $Button, $Text
Global $app = "Thermo"
HotKeySet("^y", "_kill")
$Form = GUICreate('Test', 300, 160)
GUISetFont(8.5, 400, 0, 'Tahoma', $Form)
$HKI1 = _GUICtrlHKI_Create(0, 56, 55, 230, 20)
; Lock CTRL-ALT-DEL for Hotkey Input control, but not for Windows
GUICtrlCreateLabel('Hotkey1:', 10, 58, 44, 14)
GUICtrlCreateLabel('Click on Input box and hold a combination of keys.' & @CR & 'Press OK to view the code.', 10, 10, 280, 28)
$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton('OK', 110, 124, 80, 23)
$out = 0
While $out = 0
Switch GUIGetMsg()
Case $Button
$out = 1
$KB = StringRight(Hex(_GUICtrlHKI_GetHotKey($HKI1)), 4)
While 1
If _IsPressed($KB, $dll) Then _launchAPP()

Func _launchAPP()
MsgBox(0,"Test OK","Test OK")
; just run the application

Func _kill()
Exit 0
EndFunc ;==>_kill

BUT this only works for regular keys, not combo (i.e. ALT-F6)

Is there a way to let _ispressed() to understand combo ?

Obviously all is about 2 lines:

$KB = StringRight(Hex(_GUICtrlHKI_GetHotKey($HKI1)), 4)


_IsPressed($KB, $dll)

if I use ,4 I get all the parameters but it seems _ispressed read only the last two digits

Just use two conditions.

While 1
     If _IsPressed("A2",$hDLL) AND _IsPressed("41",$hDLL) Then
          ; Do Stuff
