Using One Hotkey Multiple Times

18 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

I don't know whether this is the right place to put such an easy script, but maybe some people need something like that one day. :)

A friend of mine asked me, how to use one hotkey to call different funcs by hitting the key different times.

(The func put() is just to show, that different funcs are called. )

So here it is:

HotKeySet("a", "pressed")
Dim $i = 0, $PushTime = 1000

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func pressed()
    $i += 1
    Sleep($PushTime)
    Switch $i
        Case 1
            put(1)
        Case 2
            put(2)
        Case 3
            put(3)
        Case 4
            Exit (0)
    EndSwitch
    $i = 0
EndFunc   ;==>pressed

Func put($y)
    MsgBox(0, "Func called: ", "Nr: " & $y)
EndFunc   ;==>put

So long,

Mega

Actually i didn't understand at first... i would press ( slowly) and kep getting a message box with "1"

but, then i realized you press the key 1 to 4 times within the $PushTime/sleep and the function is called with the corresponding # of 1 to 3... 4 exits

I have never used hotkeyset() like this

Good demo.... th.meger

Hi,

thanks. It was kind of crackbrained. Firstly, I thought I have to take the time between hitting the hotkey but then I tried to create the buffer with the sleep command and it worked.

Shows another way of thinking outside the box. I was like "hrm how is he going to accomplish this"...once I saw the variable $PushTime and its location in the Sleep I knew it was the amount of times pressed.

I like it. I think it could be a useful script.

Hi,

that's so crazy. I tried to create some useful scripts like (see my sig) and I think there might be some people out there who uses them. :(

But no SmOke_N, garfrost, Valuater, BigDod, JSThePatriot and so on replied. :)

But posting this little script ... :D

Nevertheless, I'll keep on running. I love this forum!

So long,

I am in and out of the forums...many of your programs look good. I dont always have the time to check them out. I do appreciate the value you place on my opinion.

Is this not a better way of doing it. this way you will not have to wait 1 second if you only pressed it once and you can keep going for as many presses as you like.

HotKeySet("a", "pressed")
Dim $i = 0, $PushTime = 200

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func pressed()
    $i += 1
    
    Do  
        $g=$i
        Sleep($PushTime)
        
    Until $g==$i
    
    Switch $i
        Case 1
            put(1)
        Case 2
            put(2)
        Case 3
            put(3)
        Case 4
            Exit (0)
    EndSwitch
    $i = 0
    
EndFunc   
Func put($y)
    MsgBox(0, "Func called: ", "Nr: " & $y)
EndFunc

Hi,

what is better at the func from Cue? :)

Nice idea, but I still like my demo :P

HotKeySet("1", "pressed")
HotKeySet("2", "pressed1")

Dim $i = 0, $PushTime = 1000, $begin = 0

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func pressed()
    $begin = TimerInit()
    $i += 1
    Do
        $g = $i
        Sleep($PushTime)
    Until $g == $i
    Switch $i
        Case 1
            put(1)
        Case 2
            put(2)
        Case 3
            put(3)
        Case 4
            Exit (0)
    EndSwitch
    $i = 0
EndFunc   ;==>pressed

Func pressed1()
    $begin = TimerInit()
    $i += 1
    Sleep($PushTime)
    Switch $i
        Case 1
            put1(1)
        Case 2
            put1(2)
        Case 3
            put1(3)
        Case 4
            Exit (0)
    EndSwitch
    $i = 0
EndFunc   ;==>pressed1

Func put($y)
    ConsoleWrite("Nr: " & $y & " Cue : " & Round(TimerDiff($begin), 4) & @LF)
    ;MsgBox(0, "Func called: ", "Nr: " & $y)
EndFunc   ;==>put

Func put1($y)
    ConsoleWrite("Nr: " & $y & " Mega: " & Round(TimerDiff($begin), 4) & @LF)
    ;MsgBox(0, "Func called: ", "Nr: " & $y)
EndFunc   ;==>put1

So long,

Mega

When i tested them together Cues worked better because if i pressed the hotkey 3 times fastly it would always pop up saying "you pressed 3 times" but yours would sometimes say "you pressed 2 times" then "you pressed 1 times"

Hi,

I see, no problem for me there. :) Both worked fine.

Thanks RazerM.

th.meger i did not mean to say that your function is written badly but i thought it would just be better to wait for a certain time between consecutive keys than wait 1 second for any amount of keypresses.

why did you write code to compare the two?

Edit: [ Your code for comparing the two will always give the same or a longer time for pressed() since you have used $PushTime with a value of 1000 for both functions]

Edit: [mistake on last edit]

Nice work... it's original, even though it was two years ago, I didn't realize that...
