HotKeySet("{F3}", "StartProcess")

Recommended Posts

billshu

I am using HotKeySet("{F3}", "StartProcess") to start processing my program.  It works great.  Now I want to have 2 instances of this program running at the same time.  How do i test for this. 

I put the following in the program.  I was hoping that F3 would only start the "Active" program, but it does not work. 

If ( WinGetHandle("") <> $P3Form) Then   
      PostLog("Another instance of this program is loading")
      Return(0)
EndIf

Use GUISetAccelerators instead of HotKeySet, this will make the hotkeys only active when that window is active and not globally.

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.
