HotKeySet closing brace

Recommended Posts

I have discovered an issue I wish to report. I don't know if it is a bug since I'm new to Autoit.
To declare braces as hotkeys "{{}" and "{}}" are used. The former works but "{}}" does not work. Instead "}" works.

Please run this:

HotKeySet( "{{}", "myfunc1" )
HotKeySet( "{}}", "myfunc2" )
while 1
func myfunc1()
msgbox( 0, "Test", "You pressed {{}" )
func myfunc2()
msgbox( 0, "Test", "You pressed {}}" )

myfunc2() does not fire. Instead if we replace "{}}" by "}", it fires.


HotKeySet( "}", "myfunc2" )
while 1

func myfunc2()
msgbox( 0, "Test", "You pressed }" )

This works.

Am I doing something wrong?

It looks like a bug. HotKeySet should use the same format as Send where it is necessary to enclose a "}" in a "{}" pair. I will raise a Trac ticket - thanks for reporting it. :thumbsup:
