HotKeySet and Keyboard Scancode

Recommended Posts


I would like to re purpose my unused keyboard keys into useful shortcuts.

HotKeySet("{BROWSER_FAVORITES}", "test")

Did not work.   The adjacent { BROWSER_BACK } and { BROWSER_FORWARD } do work with hotkeyset.

Function _Ispressed returns 0xAB, as the key scan code.

Is there a way to do HotKeySet(0xAB, "test)?  

I do not want to do


While True
            If _IsPressed(0xAB) Then

You can use _WinAPI_SetWindowsHookEx with $WH_KEYBOARD_LL (see the example in the function reference).

The scan code is in the $tagKBDLLHOOKSTRUCT and if you return 1 in the hook procedure, you can prevent the key from doing anything else.
