Replace music key on keyboard with Chrome back button


Recommended Posts

Here's a hacky script I made to make the music key on my keyboard click the back button on my Chrome browser.  You need to compile the script in to an exe, and associate "cda" file extension to the executable.  Note- this also means you can reassign the music key on your keyboard to whatever executable you want using this method!

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
HotKeySet("{Escape}", "exitScript")
$chromePos = WinGetPos("Chrome")
If (@error <> 0) Then
    ConsoleWriteError("Can not find Chrome window - WinGetPos returned @error: " & @error & @CRLF)
    Exit
EndIf
$originalMousePos = MouseGetPos()
MouseClick("primary", $chromePos[0] + 20, $chromePos[1] + 45, 1, 2)
MouseMove($originalMousePos[0], $originalMousePos[1], 2)

Func exitScript()
    ConsoleWrite("Exiting script..." & @CRLF)
    Exit
EndFunc

Yay AutoIt3 community.  Unfortunately, for the most part at work I've moved on to OSX machines (meh).  Seems like that's what all the companies are developing on lately.

I would not recommend changing the default for the .cda extension.

You do realize, that .cda files are what exist on an audio CD.

Extreme care should be taken when altering registry based things.

      zPlayer is the name I used when I introduced the early version of this player in my blog back in early 2009 and, therefore, has nothing to do with the mobile media player of the same name which started marketing in 2015.
      After I retired from active duty in 2002 I spent much time listening to music. First I started with CD's and LP's, then quickly moved on to mp3 files. I converted many of my CD's to mp3 and I collected many more from various sources which were freely available at the time. As the number of my mp3 files grew, I put them in folders according to their genres and my favorite classifications. I mainly used Windows Media Player to listen to them and I slowly began to dislike wmp because it had massive user interface while I just wanted to listen to music in the background while I was doing other work in the foreground, hopping between folders from time to time. It was the time I was beginning to learn AutoIt and I thought I should make my own player with AutoIt. Coming from a sales career with no experience in programming, it was not an easy task. Somehow, after about 2 years of learning and trying, I had my own audio player which worked with only hotkeys without any graphical interface. I gave it to some of my friends who were not as computer-savvy as I. They liked it but definitely wanted something to clcik with mouse. So I came up with very rude gui which took a form similar to what it is now.
      The attached source files include one au3 file, one icon file and 14 jpg files. The jpg files are used for drawing a graphical player and are fileinstalled in @DocumentsCommonDir folder. This player uses WMPlayer.OCX as its engine and supports all audio file formats supported by wmp and additional codecs installed. I would like to thank @Bilgus for kind answers to my questions and would appreciate it if anyone could review the code and give me any suggestion. This player works for me, but I don't know whether the code is presentable as an example. I am posting this here with a hope to learn much from AutoIt community.
      PS: Video function was added in August 2020. Please see Downloads section of this forum for the latest version of this player.

      If you like to launch a game that has uncomfortable key combination, can you use AutoIt to map better keys just for that game without affecting the entire system?
      For the sake of example, let's say your game's executable is notepad.exe and you'd like the letter / to actually type \, but only inside Notepad.

      I am using web driver and xpaths to automate chrome. 
      I am able to edit everything I need to until I get these pop ups. Then when I try to find the xpath it act like it does not exist. 
      This code below is working to find input fields on the main page of the site. But, if I try the same thing for ones in the popover it will not find it. 😕
      $sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//*[substring(@id, string-length(@id) - string-length('_3') + 1 ) = '_3']") _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'value', "TEST") Here is the html

      Any idea why it is not finding the element inside these pop overs?

      Hello, the script below will read column A from an excel file - and if a value matches in the browser, it will click the corresponding link and click on a specific button to paste the data, then writes "Completed" in Column B. It will continue to read from the excel file and do the same thing for all the remaining rows.

      What i am trying figure out now is if the excel crashes while the script/loop is running, I want to relaunch the excel file continue to the last row before the excel crashed. So if the value of column B is not marked as "completed", it should continue from that row
      Appreciate any help that I can get to achieve this.
