MsgBox overrides HotKeySet


Go to solution Solved by bogQ,

Recommended Posts

Calling MsgBox inside the HotkeySet invokes an MsgBox right after the start of the script and no HotKey is registered, but the script can run:

HotKeySet("!y", MsgBox (0, "It's working!", "You pressed alt y"))   ; yes working
While 1
    Sleep (1000)
WEnd

I've already found the correct syntax:

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")
Func Terminate()
        Exit
EndFunc

But still curious if it's a bug or whether is there an option to call a built-in function directly in the HotKeySet().

No due that HotKeySet second parrametar expect to be a "string" with function name in it.

MagBox dont return string but your custom funcs can return it.

HotKeySet("{F10}", testFunc()) 
While 1
    Sleep (1000)
WEnd

Func testFunc()
    return "callMsgBox"
EndFunc

Func callMsgBox()
    MsgBox (0, "It's working!", "You pressed F10")
EndFunc

but then why all the trouble when this is always easier

HotKeySet("{F10}", "testFunc") 
While 1
    Sleep (1000)
WEnd

Func testFunc()
    MsgBox (0, "It's working!", "You pressed F10")
EndFunc

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

It started as a mistake, but this thing can do cool things:

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "SetHotKey")
Func SetHotkey ()
    HotKeySet(InputBox ("HotkeySet", "Key:"), InputBox ("HotkeySet", "Func:"))
EndFunc
Func HotExit ()
    Exit
EndFunc
While 1
    Sleep (10000)
WEnd
