Unset a Hotkey ?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

i have this

HotKeySet("q", "q")
HotKeySet("ض", "da")
Func q()

Func da()

While 1

look at the upper left of your keyboard for letter "q" lets call that key "key1"

if you have an English keyboard you will see "q" written on "key1" 

if you have an Arabic keyboard you will see "ض" written on "key1" 

when i run the script if my keyboard style was Arabic ill get "ض"

if it was English ill get "q"

but when i switch the keyboard language while the script is running i'll get the old msg box


i ran the script with the English keyboard language then i pressed "q" i got "q" when i switch the keyboard language to Arabic (while the script is running) then i press q another time ill still get "q" and the same thing for Arabic i still get "ش" when i switch the keyboard lang while the script is running

so i have to restart the script so Autoit can detect what is pressed exactly

my question is can i unset a hotkey with the script is running or maybe reset hotkey while the script is running ? maybe it will detect what is processed correctly ?

any ideas ?

From the help file:

key The key combination to use as the hotkey. Same format as Send().

function [optional] The name of the function to call when the key is pressed. Not specifying this parameter will unset a previous hotkey.
