Remap keyboard keys

3 posts in this topic

need help to remap '<' button and SHIFT+'<'
I made a little editor that allows to my users to write using proprietary codes.

In production we have 2 keys/symbols that i want to 'emulate'. So, when is press on my keyboard :

< = «
SHIFT+< = »

Try to use help example _IsPressed :

#include <Misc.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll")

While 1
    If _IsPressed("10", $hDLL) Then
        ConsoleWrite("_IsPressed - Shift Key was pressed." & @CRLF)
        ; Wait until key is released.
        While _IsPressed("10", $hDLL)
        ConsoleWrite("_IsPressed - Shift Key was released." & @CRLF)
    ElseIf _IsPressed("1B", $hDLL) Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "_IsPressed", "Close the application.")


but how manage keys combination ?

thank you for any help,

Something like this:

HotKeySet("<", "_Bracket")
HotKeySet(">", "_Bracket")
HotKeySet("{ESc}", "_Exit")

While 1

Func _Bracket()
    MsgBox(0, "Key pressed", @HotKeyPressed)
EndFunc   ;==>_Bracket

Func _Exit()
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

      I have a situation where the desktop is designed in java swings. The nodes JTree is not allowing me to do checkbox selection using "spacebar". I am able to navigate through the nodes using up, down arrow and a tab. When I reach to the desire node selection, mouse left click is not working due a flaw a JTree core. However since it is selected, if mouse cursor auto moved to the position of the selection and send a "click"  then it should be solved. Any ideas much appreciated. 
      the problem with having fixed coordinates are the main windows is divided to 2panels where right panel containing this JTree can be expanded or shrink-ed.

      First of all I would like say infinite thanks to the team involved in designing this great tool.
      Here is my problem
      1. Press windows button
      2. ESC
      3. TAB
      4. It will take me to the first pinned icon in the taskbar
      5. If I I do SHIFT F10 which usually opens context menu like  right click of the mouse.
      6. For one of the application I am using it does not support  Shift + F10 context menu rather it listens to only mouse right click event.
      7. I do a search in a tree view of my application and the search item is selected or focused
      8. For eg


      Now if I search for User1 the tab or focus move to User 1 (Red)

      If I search for User3 the tab or focus moves to User 3
      Now my question is how can I move the mouse automatically go to the focused item on the window. Such that during automation I can issue MoveClick("{RIGHT}") as {SHIFT F10} is not working from the keyboard. It is a java app, unfortunately it is not honoring the right click events from keyboard to open the context


      the above scripts take the tab to the first pinned icon in the taskbar. Now i want
      MouseMove( "move to tab" selection")

      Hi guys,
      I've seen the @kblayout macro, but the information I'm after is the keyboard layout (aka "Input Method") so I can detect if I'm using "US Keyboard" or "United States-Dvorak Keyboard" rather than 00000c09 or 00000409 which relate to languages such as EN AU or EN US for example.
      For example I have 1 language set up (English Australia) in my regional settings, but then under the language I have "US Keyboard" and "United States-Dvorak Keyboard" setup, so that when I press WIN+SPACE I can toggle between them.
      Effectively I want a way of determining if I'm running qwerty or dvorak.
      Thanks guys!!

      I post here because i was wonderring if someone in this forum could help me with my script.
      What i'm trying to do, is to basically install a new keyboard layout in Windows and activate it. I want to acheive by the registry or the command line, but not with the autoit automation tools, i don't find it stable...
      Thanks for your help and have a good day!

      Hi There, 
      I'm currently rebinding some of my keys (multimedia ones) and I have two keys that handle the Zoom (+ & -)
       (just after the calc key)
      I looked everywhere (in the help file and on Google) but I was not able to find the matching code.
      Do some of you could have a little idea on how to get their "name" so I'll be able to remap them?
