Global shortcut won't trigger. Appears to only work with certain hardware devices.

Recommended Posts

Hi there, so I have a laptop (Razer Blade) which contains some proprietary software called Synapse. It allows global shortcuts so I can change performance profiles and these trigger fine if I manually enter the shortcut into the hardware keyboard, however they are not triggered if I use automation software such as AutoIT or AutoHotkey.

My question is; are there workarounds for this kind of eventuality, when a command just won't activate?

CraftyClown,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

Can you please post an example of the code you have tried to run - see here how to do it.

nope,  that is incorrect...read help file carefully.

 

apologies, I've just jumped over from AHK so I may have got myself confused.

I think this may be a moot point anyway as the shortcuts seem to be restricted to recognised hardware.

Before I spend too long searching the help files, can you let me know if my code is far off?

CraftyClown,

As explained in the Help file for Send (HotKeySet uses the same syntax) you only need the braces {} when sending "special keys" - try:

Send("^+1")

Ah yes of course. Sorry I was quickly copy and pasting there :)

 

The code you just shared was what I was trying, without the curly braces.

 

Unfortunately it doesn't work though. As mentioned before it appears the global shortcuts are restricted to compatible hardware, but I'm wondering if there is a way around that?

Of course I don't have the hardware so I can't test, but autoit keys should be treated just like you're pushing them on the keyboard. Perhaps there's some logic chip in between the keyboard and where it passes to windows.... 

 

You could try sending the keys to the explorer.exe?

Easy test, plug another keyboard into the computer and try using the same keyboard shortcut and see if it works. You can even leave the Razer keyboard in as another test and see if they work without it, and with it.


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.

Thanks. How would one go about sending the keys to explorer.exe?

The Razer keyboard is actually the laptop built in one, but yes I can try hooking up another one and see if that works.

If it doesn't work and this is a hardware limitation, is there any kind of workaround where I can emulate the working hardware?

My guess would be no.

If you really want to accomplish this still, I'd look at the synapse software itself.  Perhaps the window tool can get a control ID for toggling between the modes, and you can simply emulate a click on that.  Does it live in the taskbar and can you right click -> change whatever your trying to change?

Good call! Yes there is taskbar app that can be left clicked to bring up, however it looks like I need to hover the mouse over the profiles to make them show up. Do you think this would still be possible?

Below is code I used when I had to try to automate something in the sys tray. Removed things that reference what I was using It for.. it should work once you enter the 3 strings you're looking for.  Of course, if it has a menu, that changes things.  A screenshot would help understand.  I believe this is win10 specific; as the overflow window is called something else.

By taskbar, you to mean in the system tray? (Bottom right next to clock)

 

Sorry, yes of course I meant the system tray.

As you can see from the screen grab the mouse needs to hover over the triangle on the right edge of the profile, to reveal the three profile options to the left. The mouse then needs to glide to the left to select the relevant profile. 

Will all these mouse movements make automation of this kind difficult?
