Got a few simple questions

Recommended Posts


Hello AutoIT forums!

So once again i got a few more questions about some pretty simple stuff that i can't seem to figure out myself.

  • So i would like to know if its possible to capture your OWN keystrokes?
  • My previous script does never end, which is not what i want. Is there any way i can make it shut down after a specific amount of time?
  • What is the commands i should have a look at to create this script:
I'm going to create a little script that i would like to on key press, capture my screen, save it at a specific folder and then ask for name to the captured file. Like a pop-up box.

I hope to get my questions answered soon as i don't know what to do in the meantime! :-)

Best regards ~ nacon

HotKeySet would be the one to look at first. TimerInit and TimerDiff for the duration question might help as well.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
