associate a gui button with a key

Recommended Posts

 

ok so, I have this this scrip for my work already finished but I cant find the way to press the button "send " with a key,  it's annoying to have to maximize the gui every time I need to use it; hotkeyset and & º are the ways that I found but, they dont work me at all, there is another way to do it?

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{F1}", "_SendDate" )
Local $vCurrentDate
Local  $_vCurrentDate
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
Local $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 250, 170, 192, 124)
Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 110, 50, 105, 21)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "aaaa-mm-dd", "")
GUICtrlSetState($input1, $GUI_DISABLE)
Local $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("(F1) Send", 90, 90, 75, 24)
;; Or
;~ Local $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("$º Send", 90, 120, 75, 24)
Local $Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Date1", 60, 53, 33, 17)
Local $Radio1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Auto", 60, 17, 78, 17)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_CHECKED)
Local $Radio2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Manual", 140, 17, 113, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###


While 1
   $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
   Switch $nMsg
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
   EndSwitch
    Switch $nMsg

         Case $Button2
               Select
                  Case GUICtrlRead($Radio2) = 1
                     _SendDate (GUICtrlRead($Input1))
                  Case GUICtrlRead($Radio1) = 1
                     _SendDate ()
               EndSelect
         Case $Radio1
               if GUICtrlRead($Radio1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                  GUICtrlSetState($input1, $GUI_DISABLE)


               EndIf
         Case $Radio2
               if GUICtrlRead($Radio2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                  GUICtrlSetState($input1, $GUI_ENABLE)


               EndIf
    EndSwitch

 WEnd


 Func _SendDate ($_vCurrentDate = "(F1) Send")
Local $vCurrentDate = $_vCurrentDate = "(F1) Send" ? StringRight(@Year, 4) & ("-") & StringFormat("%02u-%02u", @MON, @MDAY) : $_vCurrentDate
WinActivate ("Untitle - Notepad", "")
WinWaitActive ("Untitle - Notepad", "", 0)
Send ($vCurrentDate)
Send("{ENTER}")
EndFunc

With HotKeySet you can't use parameters in the function call, all parameters are ignored.  You shouldn't use HotKeys that are used frequently by other programs like F1, so use something like Ctrl+F1, see example code below:
nb: Not sure why but your default "Untitle - Notepad" is "Untitled - Notepad" on my system, so you may need to change it.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("^{F1}", "_SendDate")

Global $g_vCurrentDate

GUICreate("Example", 250, 170, 192, 124)
Global $g_idDateInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 110, 50, 105, 21)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "aaaa-mm-dd", "")
    GUICtrlSetState($g_idDateInput, $GUI_DISABLE)
Global $g_idSendButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("(F1) Send", 90, 90, 75, 24)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Date1", 60, 53, 33, 17)
Global $g_idRadio1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Auto", 60, 17, 78, 17)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_CHECKED)
Global $g_idRadio2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Manual", 140, 17, 113, 17)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $g_idSendButton
            Select
                Case GUICtrlRead($g_idRadio2) = 1
                    $g_vCurrentDate = GUICtrlRead($g_idDateInput)
                    _SendDate ()
                Case GUICtrlRead($g_idRadio1) = 1
                    $g_vCurrentDate = GUICtrlRead($g_idDateInput)
                    _SendDate ()
            EndSelect
        Case $g_idRadio1
            If GUICtrlRead($g_idRadio1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                GUICtrlSetState($g_idDateInput, $GUI_DISABLE)
            EndIf
        Case $g_idRadio2
            If GUICtrlRead($g_idRadio2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                GUICtrlSetState($g_idDateInput, $GUI_ENABLE)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
 WEnd

 Func _SendDate ()
    If $g_vCurrentDate = "" Then $g_vCurrentDate = "(F1) Send"
    $g_vCurrentDate = $g_vCurrentDate = "(F1) Send" ? StringRight(@Year, 4) & ("-") & StringFormat("%02u-%02u", @MON, @MDAY) : $g_vCurrentDate
    WinActivate ("Untitled - Notepad", "")
    WinWaitActive ("Untitled - Notepad", "", 0)
    Send ($g_vCurrentDate)
    Send("{ENTER}")
    $g_vCurrentDate = "" ;~ Reset the variable to blank
EndFunc
