HotKey -- Send

2 posts in this topic

I did check the Help file under 'HotKeySet' but I couldn't really make much sense of what it was saying, so here's my question...

I want, when a key is pressed, say "L", for it to send a few commands, such as, Send("Whatever") etc. Can someone help me please?

HotKeySet does not suppport single letters of the alphabet, so L and Shift+L cannot be used. (Also some programs trap hotkeys and prevent AutoIt from interacting fully....) You can use Ctrl+L, Alt+L, Ctrl+Shift+L, Ctrl+Alt+L, or Ctrl+Shift+Alt+L or you can use a few single keys like Escape, Pause, F11

Example using Ctrl+L; press Esc to quit...

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

HotKeySet("^l", "SendStuff")
Func SendStuff()
   Send("Whatever")
EndFunc

While 1
   sleep(100)
WEnd
Exit
