Send alt+f4 if the esc button is pressed and only when program is running

Recommended Posts

Ive been trying all day to put something together, but something not clicking. 


This is what I have. 


#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

If ProcessExists("chrome.exe") Then ; Check if the Notepad process is running.
    HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Main")
    HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "Main1")
    Func Main()
    ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Notepad is running")
    Func Main1()
       ControlClick ( [, button = "left" [, clicks = 3 [, 1629 [, 105]]]] )
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Notepad is not running")


what I am trying to do is run a script that will only work when chrome is running and if the ESCAPE button gets pressed it will send the alt+f4 combo to terminate the program, or if the PAUSE button gets click it will click 3 clicks to a pre-determined spot on the webpage (1629,105).


Ive been trying all day, and im at a stand still now, I think I have it right. PLease tell me im not that way off, that its some ; missing somewhere or soemthing lol.

You mean something like this?

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "AltF4")
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "Pause")

While 1

Func Pause()
    If WinActive('[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_1]') Then MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 1629, 105, 3)

Func AltF4()
    If WinActive('[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_1]') Then Send('!+{F4}')


Yeah that worked perfectly, and is similar but different to what I tried. I guess with more expresience ill learn more different ways to accomplish the same thing. Thanks big time.

Just a couple comments.  

If you opt to use GUISetAccelerators instead of HotKeySet, you won't have to worry about the window being active or not.  The "hotkey" function will only fire if the GUI is already active.  

instead of sending the Alt+F4 keystrokes, you could use the WinClose function--more elegant and less room for human error.

Doh, you are totally right.  I glazed over the fact that the OP is not dealing with a GUI they made.  Apologies.

My second statement still stands....I think  :blink:
