Thank you.

I don't know why the alt key doesn't work with the code I wrote below, but it does work with the enter key. There's probably some technical reason that I'm unaware of. Anyways, try this code to give you some ideas. Remember, this uses the enter key, not the alt key.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $isCreated = 0
Global $MenuItem1, $MenuItem2, $MenuItem3

HotKeySet ("{ENTER}", "_MenuItemCheck")
$Form1 = GUICreate("MyGui", 615, 438, 192, 124)
_CreateMenuItems()
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _MenuItemCheck()
    If $isCreated = 0 Then
        _CreateMenuItems()
    Else
        _DeleteMenuItems()
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func _CreateMenuItems()
    $MenuItem3 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("MenuItem1")
    $MenuItem1 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("MenuItem2")
    $MenuItem2 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("MenuItem3")
    $isCreated = 1
EndFunc

Func _DeleteMenuItems()
    GUICtrlDelete($MenuItem1)
    GUICtrlDelete($MenuItem2)
    GUICtrlDelete($MenuItem3)
    $isCreated = 0
EndFunc

The ALT key is a modifier for HotKeySet, it can't be used as a primary key. You'd need to use _IsPressed or something similar to detect just the ALT key being pressed.


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.
