An (Shift) Hotkey problem

Recommended Posts

Ticki84

Hello everyone,

So my problem is for all scripts, when i do an HotSetKey with Shift + D, and that it seem to write an phrase like "Abracadabra", it write Abraca and redo the function again.

So i get AbracaAbracaAbracaAbraca...

I don't know if it's a keyboard bug or somethings else but it's like if i press Shift.

Is there anyways to fix this?

I think but it's not for the same thinks, it is to write an notepad automatic writer.

You may be typing your hot key wrong it should be

Hotkeyset("{LSHIFT}","Function name") - that will set the hotkey to the left shift button for right just use RSHIFT

That won't work, you can't set a modifier key to a hotkey. You have to use a modifier with another key for it to work.

It's not the function that no work, it just that the program thinks that i press shift (or somethings like that).

Disable the HotKey as you enter the function, reenable it as you leave the function, that way your hotkey and the send won't interfere with each other. Although, if I were you I wouldn't use SHIFT + 1 I'd use the exclamation point inside curly braces "{!}".

Show us some minimal example code that is typing AbracaAbracaAbracaAbraca... into notepad, and we can help debug it for you.


Who else would I be?
