Escape key assigned in HotKeySet()

Recommended Posts

I believe the typical way to handle this is to "unbind" the hotkey at the start of your function and then enable it again at the bottom --

HotKeySet('{RIGHT}', 'test')

Func test()
      HotKeySet('{RIGHT}')
      If WinActive('[CLASS:MSPaintApp]') Then
        MsgBox(0, 'Hotkey Pressed', 'RightArrow')
      Else
        Send('{RIGHT}')
      EndIf
      HotKeySet('{RIGHT}', 'test')
EndFunc

it obvious from the document but didn't know what it meant. it still a mystery to me, so how does it work?

so, initial {Esc} key pressed call captureEsc(), then  unregister/unbind {Esc} key event then able to send {Esc} as 'raw' key, and why set HotKeySet("{Esc}", "captureEsc") inside the function?

; capture and pass along a keypress
HotKeySet("{Esc}", "captureEsc")
Func captureEsc()
    ; ... can do stuff here
    HotKeySet("{Esc}")
    Send("{Esc}")
    HotKeySet("{Esc}", "captureEsc")
EndFunc

Yes, but remember that there is quite a large elapse time between unregistering a hotkey and reregistering the key.  If you type real fast, you will find that this is not a good approach to take.
