Two Scripts With The Same Hotkeys, A Solution?

5 posts in this topic

I have 2 scripts with that share some of the same HotKeys. Let's call them A and B Script. A is primary and runs all the time. B is secondary and used only a few times a day. Let's assume that we do not want to change the HotKeys in either A or B. And, that we don't want to close one script when we have to run the other script.

Is there a way to Toggle the hotkeys or scripts so that the HotKeys can be used? Ideally, I would like to assign a HotKey on Script A, to open/close Script B, and when Script B is running, disable the shared HotKeys.

Thanks in Advance.

Maybe

while 1

if winactive("A") then
hotkeyset.....
; set all hotkeys
endif

if winactive("B") then
hotkeyset.....
; set all hotkeys
endif

I have 2 scripts with that share some of the same HotKeys. Let's call them A and B Script. A is primary and runs all the time. B is secondary and used only a few times a day.

I asked this very question a couple months ago.

My situation may be different. I have A run all the time like yours. Its a universal hotkey that does different things depending on what is on the screen at the time so there is a master case statement.

The soln that was suggested is to make A call a different key combo if my key does not match anything that script A cares about.

Then Script B just looks for the alternate key combo instead. This works good for me as A is always running anyway and will pass the alternate when I press the original key if its not a script A thing.

I'm sure there is a better way to handle this for more scripts at once. I have C and D doing the same as B but for now I've only had them running one at a time so there have been no conflicts.

I know this isn't 100% the solution you are looking for but within a script you could call various functions, or a single function that changes it's actions based upon active window, existing window, pixel color, or any other variance.

EX:

Global $Window1 = "AutoIt Help"
Global $Window2 = "Database Error"
Global $Window3 = "InSource CS Login"
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "_PausePress")
While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
Func _PausePress()
 If WinActive($Window1) then Send("{!}")
 If WinActive($Window2) then Send("1")
 If WinActive($WIndow3) then 
  ControlClick($Window3, "", "Edit1")
  Controlsend($Window3,"", "Edit1", "My Message String")
 EndIf
EndFunc

Yeah this really won't do anything functional, but it illustrates the point.
