Help with a loop please

Recommended Posts

I thought I would write a sort of "Master Control Program" for some tasks here at work. I basicly want to define a bunch of keys that will trigger functions within the script. Here is what I have for my first function. It will run, but it will not recognize the hotkey. I removed the application's window name for descreetness(SP?) Please advise:

;set hotkey to run function

HotKeySet("{LALT}q", "checkcase")

;define functions

Func checkcase()

WinActivate("Activate application window", "")

ControlClick("Activate a button in that application's window", "", "Button85")

ControlFocus("Load Query", "", "Edit1")



ControlClick("Load Query", "", "Button2")



;main program

While 1

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}'.
