Open hotkeys after stopping all autoit scripts


Recommended Posts

I have a script which is compiled and runs at start up.  Its function is to stop all running scripts by pressing a hotkey.  I obtained this script from this forums as it was authored by someone else.  It works great but I wanted to add one more feature to it.  I wanted to have it close all the running scripts and then open my hotkeys.  So I added the function named: OpenHotkeys to the existing script.  When I invoke the hotkey ("Ctrl - Alt - Shift + Pause) to stop all running scripts, all running scripts are stopped but the set of hotkeys I want to run does not execute.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advanceAutoIt - Kill-Stop all Scripts - JQ Modified.au3

In your HotKeyPressed() function, how do you think the code after the "Return" statement is going to get executed:huh2:;)

 

Also, Call("f_OpenHotkeys")  is the exact same as f_OpenHotkeys().  You don't need to use the Call function to execute that function.

How does your viewer help solve the issue I posted?  I see no correlation.

I have it figured out.  "Return" ends a function.

You've got it :)

The Shellexecute command does the trick to run the script I need.

There is no trick, just coding.

The reason I pointed to that code, is because you question was no clear to me and I figure that you may get a hint on how to code your script out of that other script.

Happy coding   :construction:
