HotKeySet chain letter

Recommended Posts

You can't do it that way with HotKeySet, the function only works with a single key, and the modifier keys CTRL/ALT/SHIFT/WIN can also be used with that single key.

You  could do it with _IsPressed instead though, but it's trickier and harder to code.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Somewhere else recently @Melba23 answered a similar question.

You can not check simultaneously for a combo key press.  So checking for ispressed 'abc' will not work.  Rather check for

ispressed 'a' then ispressed 'b' then ispressed 'c'


and only when ALL conditions are met, do the next step.

Sorry to revive an old topic, but I actually solved this issue earlier this year. Check out my example script Map.au3. It uses a password in map.txt as a hotkey and only works if you type the string in fast enough. So if my map.txt contained a password of "apples", I would have to type in "apples" one letter at a time, and when the last letter has been typed, the function activates.
