Hotkey not working!

9 posts in this topic

Before I make a bug report, I would like to discuss this issue here to make sure that its not my own fault. I'm having a problem with this script.

HotKeySet("{!}", "exclaim")

While 1
 Sleep(500)
WEnd

Func exclaim()
 MsgBox(0, "", "!")
EndFunc  ;==>exclaim

I expect this script to show the msgbox whenever I press ! , but it doesn't do it. Please help!

HI,

right from help:

The following hotkeys cannot be set:

Ctrl+Alt+Delete It is reserved by Windows 
F12 It is also reserved by Windows, according to its API. 
NumPad's Enter Key Instead, use {Enter} which captures both Enter keys on the keyboard. 
Win+B,D,E,F,L,M,R,U; and Win+Shift+M These are built-in Windows shortcuts. Note: Win+B and Win+L might only be reserved on Windows XP and above. 
Alt, Ctrl, Shift, Win These are the modifier keys themselves! 
Other Any global hotkeys a user has defined using third-party software, any combos of two or more "base keys" such as '{F1}{F2}', and any keys of the form '{LALT}' or '{ALTDOWN}'.

So long,

Mega

Ok ty for trying to help me out guys. And a special thanks to BigDod for actually solving my problem! And Mega, I dont see where it says you can't use '!' as a hotkey in the help file...

Also another question. What is the logic behind "+1"? Since '!' isn't the only key I'm having a problem with. I'm having problems with all the keys which need {} around them. So please explain the usage of this "+1" thing. And I hope someone adds it to the helpfile how to add keys like '!' as hotkeys. Ty again! And please answer my new question. Ty.

+1 equates to SHIFT 1 which is !
