Toggling a function with a hotkey

Recommended Posts

I am writing a script that has several functions. I have added an if statement at the end of each function that reads

Global $Debug = 1

While 1
    ToolTip("Debug Status: ", & $Debug,0,0)

Func SendH()
If $Debug == 1 Then

Func ToggleDebug() ;First attempt
    If $Debug == 1 Then
        $Debug = 0
    ElseIf $Debug = 1 Then
        $Debug = 0

Func ToggleDebug() ;Second attempt
     Switch $Debug
          Case 0
                $Debug = 1
          Case 1
                $Debug = 0

I have tried both ToggleDebug functions listed above and neither work. Is the F12 key off limits or what am I doing wrong?

Is the F12 key off limits

I take it reading the Help file is far too difficult for a Saturday? ;)


The following hotkeys cannot be set:


F12 - It is also reserved by Windows, according to its API.

It is good programming practice to check HotKeySet() for errors.  For example:

If HotKeySet("{F12}","ToggleDebug")= 0 Then MsgBox(Default, Default, "Hotkey invalid or set by another application.")
