Send command on hotkey press

6 posts in this topic

I have a gui that has 2 entry boxes and a submit button, but I want to make it so you can press enter while in the entry box and have the submit button actually submit.

This is what I have so far:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{Enter}", "HotKeyPressed")

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 623, 114, 192, 114)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 56, 48, 121, 21)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input2", 240, 48, 121, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 424, 48, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            MsgBox(0,"","test")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func HotKeyPressed()
    Switch @HotKeyPressed ; The last hotkey pressed.
        Case "{Enter}" ; Enterkey
            If GUICtrlRead($Input1) <> '' OR GUICtrlRead($Input2) <> '' Then
                MsgBox(0,"Ummmm...","I have no idea how to call the button?!")
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
EndFunc

Jewtus,

Rather than use a HotKey I would do it like this: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 623, 114, 192, 114)

$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 56, 48, 121, 21)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input2", 240, 48, 121, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 424, 48, 75, 25)
$cEnterDummy = GUICtrlCreateDummy()

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

 ; Set Accelerator key
 Local $aAccelKeys[1][2] = [["{ENTER}", $cEnterDummy]]
 GUISetAccelerators($aAccelKeys)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cEnterDummy
            ; Clear flag
            $bOK = False
            ; See what has focus
            Switch _WinAPI_GetFocus()
                Case GUICtrlGetHandle($Input1), GUICtrlGetHandle($Input2)
                    If GUICtrlRead($Input1) <> '' Or GUICtrlRead($Input2) <> '' Then
                        ; Set flag
                        $bOK = True
                    EndIf
            EndSwitch
            ; If flag set then fire the button
            If $bOK Then ContinueCase
        Case $Button1
            MsgBox(0,"","test")
    EndSwitch
WEnd
Please ask if you have any questions. :)

@M23, this appears to work.  Am I missing something?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 623, 114, 192, 114)

$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 56, 48, 121, 21)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input2", 240, 48, 121, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 424, 48, 75, 25)
$cEnterDummy = GUICtrlCreateDummy()

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

 ; Set Accelerator key
 Local $aAccelKeys[1][2] = [["{ENTER}", $cEnterDummy]]
 GUISetAccelerators($aAccelKeys)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cEnterDummy
            If GUICtrlRead($Input1) <> '' Or GUICtrlRead($Input2) <> '' Then GUICtrlSendMsg($Button1,$BM_CLICK,0,0)
        Case $Button1
            MsgBox(0,"","test")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

kylomas,

The main difference I can see is that you are not checking to see if the focus is on one of the inputs - which was part of the initial requirement: ;)

so you can press enter while in the entry box
