Capturing and Saving a Keypress

6 posts in this topic

I have a script that uses hotkeys that I want to be customized by the end user.

Basically right now, it opens using default keys and you can press a certain key to open up a GUI that lets you assign your own hotkeys with input boxes. Right now, the script works if you type in the autoit code for a hotkey. (e.g. "^{End}")

What I'd like to do is have the person who's setting up the script to put their cursor in the GUI's input box and press a hotkey combination. (CTRL and or SHIFT and or ALT + Some Key)

I'm not seeing a function that does anything like that in the functions library and I'm wondering if it is even possible, what with keyloggers being a problem now-a-days.

Point me in a direction please. :whistle:

Thanks!

_IsPressed will work. It isn't in the help file, but look in Misc.au3 for information. I haven't had much experience with this UDF.. one of the more experienced people could probably give more help than me. :whistle:

I have done this in one of my programs. It requires an array of scancodes corresponding to each key on the standard keyboard. Then use _IsPressed() and return the index from the array of scancodes. Send me a private message if you need more info, I wont post anything here. Btw for convience I added a text file in INI format with all the scancodes, check it out.
