Hotkeys and Functions with Parameters

4 posts in this topic

In my script, I have a function called Calendar that takes one parameter. I want to set a hotkey that calls this function with a certain number as the parameter. I tried to do it like this, but it calls it an unknown function:

HotKeySet("{NUMPAD1}","Calendar(1)")

Why doesn't this work?

Why doesn't this work?

because it's designed to work like that.

From the help file section of HotKeySet: The called function can not be given parameters. They will be ignored.

Solution: Define two different functions.

@HotKeyPressed contains the key used to initiate the func

Func test()
    MsgBox(0, "test", @HotKeyPressed)
EndFunc

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "test")
HotKeySet("{F10}", "test")
While 1
    Sleep(15)
Wend

Writing AutoIt scripts since
_DateAdd("d", -2, _NowCalcDate())

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

it doesn't work because it wasn't written to work that way. ;) a work around could be to use the _IsPressed() UDF.

#include <ispressed.au3>
HotKeySet("{NUMPAD1}","Calendar")
While 1
sleep(100)
WEnd
Func Calendar()
    $numpressed
if _IsPressed(61) Then $numpressed = 1
if _IsPressed(62) Then $numpressed = 2
if _IsPressed(63) Then $numpressed = 3
if _IsPressed(64) Then $numpressed = 4
if _IsPressed(65) Then $numpressed = 5
if _IsPressed(66) Then $numpressed = 6
if _IsPressed(67) Then $numpressed = 7
if _IsPressed(68) Then $numpressed = 8
if _IsPressed(69) Then $numpressed = 9
;your code here with $numpressed in place of the parameter you had EndFunc

this way your parameter will be grabbed automatically based on the number you pressed, one thing that i noticed though that maybe saunders could explain, is that it seems like only the numpad 1 registers....i tried doing a for loop, stepping forwards and backwards and still only number 1 registered or a select case, and this was my final attempt. i think the number codes may be wrong, but per the comments in _IsPressed

  60 Numeric keypad 0 key

  61 Numeric keypad 1 key

  62 Numeric keypad 2 key

  63 Numeric keypad 3 key

  64 Numeric keypad 4 key

  65 Numeric keypad 5 key

  66 Numeric keypad 6 key

  67 Numeric keypad 7 key

  68 Numeric keypad 8 key

  69 Numeric keypad 9 key

***edit***

i like MSLx Fanboy's solution better.. all you'd have to do is a select case based on @HotKeyPressed and you'd be set.
