HotKeySet() gets keys stuck

3 posts in this topic

HotKeySet("^!l", "blah1") ;ctrl alt l
While 1
Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func blah1()
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
Send("poop en{ENTER}")
EndFunc

When I press CTRL+ALT+L to run this function, my CTRL and ALT keys get stuck on. I will hit TAB and the alt-tab window will pop up. I'll press "F" in notepad and the Find dialog comes up (because CTRL/ALT is stuck so it did CTRL + ALT + F).

I changed the hotkey to be "SHIFT+CTRL+L" and then SHIFT and CTRL get stuck.

The only way for me to un-stick the keys is by doing CTRL+ALT+CAPSLOCK or CTRL+ALT+SCRLOCK (the 2 stuck keys + CAPSLOCK/SCRLOCK)

If I put in a sleep between each of the "Send" functions, then I can sometimes run this hot key without getting the keys stuck. But the success rate is like 1 in 20 runs, which doesn't make it a solution.

Any ideas why?

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.
