Key capture and text replacement

2 posts in this topic

Is there anyway to capture certain key combinations like if the user types "go" it will replace that text with "stop".  I don't want to have to type Ctrl or Alt I just want to type a certain word and it replaces it with certain text. I tried using Hotkeyset but that seems to only capture the first character. When I press "g' it types "stop" instead of capturing "go".

The following doesn't work:

 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

; Press Esc to terminate script, Pause/Break to "pause"

Global $fPaused = False

HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "TogglePause")
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")
HotKeySet("go", "stop")
HotKeySet("+!d", "ShowMessage") ; Shift-Alt-d

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func TogglePause()
    $fPaused = Not $fPaused
    While $fPaused
        Sleep(100)
        ToolTip('Script is "Paused"', 0, 0)
    WEnd
    ToolTip("")
EndFunc   ;==>TogglePause

Func stop()
    Send("Stop")
EndFunc

Func Terminate()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>Terminate

Func ShowMessage()
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "This is a message.")
EndFunc   ;==>ShowMessage
