Can one hotkey use for two scripts?

Recommended Posts

Hi ,

 

I have 2 scripts, test1.au3 and test2.au3,

;; test1.au3

HotKeySet("{F8}", "keypressf8")

while(1)
wend
Func keypressf8()
    MsgBox(0,"", "AAAAAAAAAAAAA")

EndFunc

 

;; test2.au3

HotKeySet("{F8}", "keypressf8")

while(1)
wend
Func keypressf8()
    MsgBox(0,"", "BBBBBBBBBB")

EndFunc

 

I executed the two scripts at once, when I pressed F8, there is only one Msgbox "AAAAAAAAAA" ,  

anyone knows how to let key F8 works for the two scripts at once?

 

Thanks.

If two AutoIt scripts set the same hotkeys, you should avoid running those scripts simultaneously as the second script cannot capture the hotkey unless the first script terminates or unregisters the key prior to the second script setting the hotkey. If the scripts use GUIs, then consider using GUISetAccelerators as these keys are only active when the parent GUI is active.

you can use _IsPressed(Hex_key) in that case , here is an example : -

First Script

#include <Misc.au3>

$scriptname="test1.au3"

while 1
$key=_IsPressed(77) ;f8 key 
if $key then
    keypressf8()
EndIf
Sleep(1)
wend

func keypressf8()
    MsgBox(0,"","AAAAAAAAAAAAAA")
EndFunc

Second Script

#include <Misc.au3>

$scriptname="test2.au3"

while 1
$key=_IsPressed(77) ;f8 key 
if $key then
    keypressf8()
EndIf
Sleep(1)
wend

func keypressf8()
    MsgBox(0,"","BBBBBBBBBBBB")
EndFunc
