HotkeySet remembers amount pressed and skips sleep (i think)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Situation:

Im trying to make a gui move to the right with HotKeySet("{d}", "_Right") which goes to func _Right().

The _Right() func does a sleep(1000) and then a winmove to currentcoord + 5

Problem:

If i press 'd' once, it waits 1sec and then moves the gui by 5.

if i press 'd' 3x in a row, it waits 1sec then moves the gui by 15

what i want is if i press 'd' 3x in a row it waits 1sec moves 5 waits 1sec moves 5 etc etc.

is there a delay option for hotkeyset? or what am i doing wrong?

thnx in advance,

Aapjuh

;gui stuff etc not rly needed;
HotKeySet("{d}", "_Right")
Func _Right()
Sleep(1000)
$BoxPos1 = $BoxPos1 + 5
Winmove($Box, "", $BoxPos1, $BoxPos2)
EndFunc

If you want it so that the hotkey isn't active when you're script is sleeping, you need to unregister the hotkey as you enter the function and then reregister it as you leave it. This way the script won't pay any attention to your hotkey presses.


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.

If you want to unregister a hotkey, just use HotKeySet("d") and then just set it back to what it was before, no need for a dummy function to handle it. Also, you don't need the braces around a hotkey unless it's a special key like ESC or the Windows key.
