Hotkey with NumPad

Recommended Posts

Wizardry

I have been trying to create a hotkey using various numeric pad keys unsuccessfully.  If I set up a hotkey using a single numeric key such as {numpad0} the hotkey will execute.  Whenever I use a combination of keys (modifiers) with a numeric key to create a hotkey it does not execute.  I have had no other issues creating hotkeys with various key combinations.

For example, the following key combination does not execute

HotKeySet("^+{Numpad0}","Group6") ; Shift + Control + Numpad0

I have tried placing a shift down in from of the ^ (control key) and a shift up after the numpad0 key and it still doesn't work.

The following Hotkey works:

HotKeySet("^+{F10}","Group6") ; Shift + Control + F10

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @Wizardry:)
I was trying to make an HotKeySet with your key combination, but without any result.
I only tried to remove the Shift key ( + ), and it seems to work.
Maybe it's a key combination which is not supported.

Let's see if some veteran will reply :)

Best Regards.

FrancescoDiMuro,

Thanks for the quick reply.  I will try it again without the "+" key and see what happens on my end.

Since the Shift-NUMPAD0  combination equals the keyboard  INSERT-Key use 

HotKeySet("^{INS}","Group6)")

for setting  Shift-Ctrl-Numpad0

ajag is correct.  B/c you're using the numpad you must consider the numlock state.  I think anyhow, that comes up for me when I use the numpad.

Thanks guys, looks like I need to avoid several "shift" combinations if I use the NumPad keys for hotkeys.

Thanks a million.
