HotkeySet & Windows 7

Recommended Posts

Works fine for me too.

Does it work like this?

HotKeySet("'", "func1")
;~ HotKeySet("{'}", "func1")

Func func1()
    MsgBox(0, "test", "hello")
EndFunc ;==>func1

While 1

      I have a very strange problem concerning MouseClick function.
      I need to start Control Panel, navigate it on the Display Section (Adjust screen resolution link), click on it, and from the next Dialog choose Intel Graphic tool tab and navigate into it when it opens. 
      I wasn't using MouseClick() at first when I tried to use Control IDs, but I was fed up with the Autoit Window Info poor and inaccurate info (It flickers and the moment I click on the control the control ID and class disappear) so I ended up choosing the easiest way.
      The code I'm posting worked OK until two weeks ago, the mouse clicks were accurately performed and the Script reached the end with no errors...and I was happy.
      All of a sudden, between one try and the other, I noticed the cursor not flying exactly where it was supposed to, namely to the Control Panel ->Display->Adjust screen resolution link   but it clicked some 30 pixels below and some 30 pixels to the left, choosing obviously and undesired function and from that point it screwed the whole thing up. And from that moment onward, it seems I can no longer regain the mouse to click on that sequence.
      Could it be because my Control Panel ->Display form moved slightly from one test to another and therefore I got that small offside?
      If you believe this is the reason, I should then re position the Control Panel ->Display window to 0,0 and recalculate all the clicks. 
      do you have a suggestion?
      Thanks a lot

      I need to open an INTEL Graphic Tool clicking on a Win7 Tray Icon. This icon is not shown on the Win7 Tray but it is shown once you click on a button that shows a little  arrow-up. This button opens up an extension of the tray and there is my INTEL Graphic Tool Icon. 
      The first ControlClick('[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', 1502 ) at line 26 of my source code (Rotatedisplays.au3) works fine as it clicks on the up-arrow shown on the uparrowfirst Menu.jpg  picture and opens up an extension of the tray. Then I'm trying to click on the INTEL Graphic Tool Icon which is the first blue icon (up-left) of the tray extension but I failed all my attempts. Can somebody help me out?

      Hey all,
      I know this code has been attempted before as a GUI app, and it would not copy text properly. Here is an updated version of the Google Search Shortcut  Script from: Google Search Shortcut Script

      Right now the script will exit immediately if I don't pause it somehow (obvious of course).
      I was  curious on people's opinions of how they do it or what option they prefer below? Thanks
      Option 1 (I prefer)
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> HotKeySet('^!p', SomeFunc) ProcessWaitClose(@AutoItPID) Func SomeFunc() MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Title", "This message box will timeout after 10 seconds or select the OK button.", 10) EndFunc Option 2 (in the help file)
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> HotKeySet('^!p', SomeFunc) While Sleep(100) WEnd Func SomeFunc() MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Title", "This message box will timeout after 10 seconds or select the OK button.", 10) EndFunc Option 3
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> HotKeySet('^!p', SomeFunc) While 1 GUIGetMsg() ; Use the internal sleep WEnd Func SomeFunc() MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Title", "This message box will timeout after 10 seconds or select the OK button.", 10) EndFunc

      Dear developers and creators of the language, please explain to me why when pressing the combination Crtl + Shift + C from the 5th or the 10th time "sticks / sinks" Ctrl or Shift? And then you need to press Ctrl or Shift again to reset their triggering. I only need to use hot keys like in the example!
      The code is a small example. Its essence is that when a user in the editor selects any number and presses a combination, then it increases by 1. 
      Dim $x HotKeySet("+^c","Calc") While 1 Sleep(10000) WEnd Func Calc() Send("^c") Sleep(50) $x=ClipGet()+1 ClipPut($x) Send("^v") EndFunc I thought that in my program some kind of glitch was searching for a reason for a long time. And it turned out that apparently somehow the work of some functions used in the example is not compatible. 
      Tell me, please, what is the problem?
