Input and hotkeys

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have made a code that is supposed to read an input and set hotkeys to the data in the input,

it doesn't work, what do I need to have the user enter to make it be able to use hotkeys other then single letters and numbers

Case $msg = $Button1
        If $active = 0 then
            $inputhot1 = GuiCtrlRead($Input1)
            $inputhot2 = GuiCtrlRead($Input2)
            Global $Minhotkey = $Inputhot1;what do i need to do to hotkeys to make them work for modifier keys as well
            Global $Maxhotkey = $Inputhot2
            Activate($Minhotkey,$Maxhotkey)
        Else
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "Already Active, Deactivate First")
        Endif

also, why doesn't $TRAY_ENABLE/DISABLE get accepted as a variable, it says it's undeclared

my Au3checkerror says this

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\test.au3(37,43) : WARNING: $TRAY_ENABLE: possibly used before declaration.

about this code

$msg2 = TrayGetMsg()
    If $Active = 0 Then
        TrayItemSetState($SubMenu2, $TRAY_ENABLE)
        TrayItemSetState($SubMenu3, $TRAY_DISABLE)
    Else
        TrayItemSetState($SubMenu2, $TRAY_DISABLE)
        TrayItemSetState($SubMenu3, $TRAY_ENABLE)
    Endif

yes i included GUIConstants.au3 too, and using latest release

Why is this happening?

$Tray_Enable is in the Constants.au3

Thanks missed that

well thats one question answered, but shouldn't that be made more obvious in the online helpfile

it's only in the example, and not in the syntax explanation

I tend to look at the examples for what I may need:

#Include <Constants.au3>
#NoTrayIcon

Opt("TrayMenuMode",1)   ; Default tray menu items (Script Paused/Exit) will not be shown.

$chkitem        = TrayCreateItem("Check it")
TrayCreateItem("")
$checkeditem    = TrayCreateItem("Checked")
TrayCreateItem("")
$exititem       = TrayCreateItem("Exit")

TraySetState()

While 1
    $msg = TrayGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = 0
            ContinueLoop
        Case $msg = $chkitem
            TrayItemSetState($checkeditem,$TRAY_CHECKED)
        Case $msg = $exititem
            ExitLoop
    EndSelect
WEnd

Exit
Edit ... In addition to your other question, I have no idea how to test that... have an example script to play with? And what keys may be used? Edited by SmOke_N

Edit ... In addition to your other question, I have no idea how to test that... have an example script to play with? And what keys may be used?

Here is mine entire script, I made a GUI for a window minimizer, and I want people to be able to set the hotkeys however they want, but I also don't want to have to include a 'Guide' on how to properly enter the hotkey info, but i will if it is really necessary.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
; == GUI generated with Koda ==
Opt("trayMenuMode", 1)

Global $active = 0

$Form1 = GUICreate("Quick Mimimize Menu", 358, 185, 321, 162, -1, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)
GUISetBkColor(0xD4D0C8)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("LWIN", 20, 20, 200, 21, BitOR($ES_CENTER,$ES_UPPERCASE), $WS_EX_STATICEDGE)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Minimize Hotkey", 230, 20, 113, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 800, 0, "System")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xFF0000)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xD4D0C8)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("RWIN", 20, 50, 200, 21, BitOR($ES_CENTER,$ES_UPPERCASE), $WS_EX_STATICEDGE)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Maximize Hotkey", 230, 50, 117, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 800, 0, "System")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xFF0000)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xD4D0C8)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Quick Minimizer", 0, 130, 355, 42, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 400, 6, "Stencil")
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x008000)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xD4D0C8)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Activate", 20, 88, 100, 25, $BS_FLAT)
$Deactivate = GUICtrlCreateButton("Deactivate", 130, 88, 100, 25, $BS_FLAT)
$Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 240, 88, 100, 25, $BS_FLAT)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$menu1 = TrayCreateMenu("Options")
$SubMenu1 = TrayCreateItem("Restore", $menu1)
$SubMenu2 = TrayCreateItem("Activate", $menu1)
$SubMenu3 = TrayCreateItem("Deactivate", $menu1)
$SubMenu4 = TrayCreateItem("Exit")
While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    $msg2 = TrayGetMsg()
    If $Active = 0 Then
        TrayItemSetState($SubMenu2, $TRAY_ENABLE)
        TrayItemSetState($SubMenu3, $TRAY_DISABLE)
    Else
        TrayItemSetState($SubMenu2, $TRAY_DISABLE)
        TrayItemSetState($SubMenu3, $TRAY_ENABLE)
    Endif
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Exit
    Case $msg = $Exit
        Exit
    Case $msg2 = $SubMenu4
        Exit
    Case $msg2 = $SubMenu2
        Global $Minhotkey = "{"&GuiCtrlRead($Input1)&"}"
        Global $Maxhotkey = "{"&GuiCtrlRead($Input2)&"}"
        Activate($Minhotkey,$Maxhotkey)
    Case $msg2 = $SubMenu3
        Deactivate()
    Case $msg = $Deactivate
        Deactivate()
    Case $msg = $Button1
        If $active = 0 then
            $inputhot1 = GuiCtrlRead($Input1)
            $inputhot2 = GuiCtrlRead($Input2)
            Global $Minhotkey = ""
            Global $Maxhotkey = ""
            Activate($Minhotkey,$Maxhotkey)
        Else
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "Already Active, Deactivate First")
        Endif
    Case $msg2 = $SubMenu1
        GUISetState(@Sw_SHOW, $Form1)
    EndSelect
WEnd
Exit

Func Activate($f_minkey, $f_maxkey)
    $active = 1
    GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $Form1)
    HotKeySet($f_minkey, "Minimize")
    HotKeySet($f_maxkey, "Maximize")
EndFunc

Func Deactivate()
    $active = 0
    HotKeySet($Minhotkey)
    HotKeySet($Maxhotkey)
EndFunc
    
Func Minimize()
    WinMinimizeAll()
EndFunc

Func Maximize()
    WinMinimizeAllUndo()
EndFunc

EDIT: almost forgot, hotkeys should be able to be any 1-2 key combonation that autoit is capable of assigning, probably gonna be ctrl+something or alt +something
