I HATE HotkeySet!

Recommended Posts

I am getting really frustrated with this.. here is my code:

Global Const $ubuntuHotkey = IniRead($iniPath, "Settings", "ubuntuhotkey", "^!a")
Global Const $winHotkey = IniRead($iniPath, "Settings", "winhotkey", "^!d")

HotKeySet($ubuntuHotkey, "ShowUbuntu")
HotKeySet($winHotkey, "ShowWindows")

Func ShowUbuntu()
    Local $cWin = WinExists($vmxName)
    If $cWin = 0 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Uh-oh!", "Ubuntu is not running!")
        Return 0
    Else
        WinSetState($vmxName, "", @SW_SHOW)
        Sleep(50)
        Send("^g")
        Return 1
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func ShowWindows()
    Local $cWin = WinActive($vmxName)
    If $cWin = 0 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Uh-oh!", "Ubuntu is not the active window!")
        Return 0
    Else
        Send("^!")
        Sleep(50)
        WinSetState($vmxName, "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
    EndIf
EndFunc
I have already tried using variables and normal text for HotKeySet.. neither work.

When the keys are pressed, as you can see by the function, it will do SOMETHING. But even if I press these keys a billion times, NOTHING happens.

I have tried both with the windows active and inactive. Oh God, I feel like the guy in my avatar :D

Hopefully this won't be one of my stupid questions again. :)

sorry to say it, but i think you need a break sandman, rather basic mistake.

your script opens, then closes. throw in a loop with a sleep, and bob is your mothers brother.

... try this:

Global Const $ubuntuHotkey = IniRead($iniPath, "Settings", "ubuntuhotkey", "^!a")
Global Const $winHotkey = IniRead($iniPath, "Settings", "winhotkey", "^!d")

HotKeySet($ubuntuHotkey, "ShowUbuntu")
HotKeySet($winHotkey, "ShowWindows")

while 1
    Sleep(250)
WEnd

Func ShowUbuntu()
    Local $cWin = WinExists($vmxName)
    If $cWin = 0 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Uh-oh!", "Ubuntu is not running!")
        Return 0
    Else
        WinSetState($vmxName, "", @SW_SHOW)
        Sleep(50)
        Send("^g")
        Return 1
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func ShowWindows()
    Local $cWin = WinActive($vmxName)
    If $cWin = 0 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Uh-oh!", "Ubuntu is not the active window!")
        Return 0
    Else
        Send("^!")
        Sleep(50)
        WinSetState($vmxName, "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
    EndIf
EndFunc

Yes, I already have that, sorry to not post it :)

What I posted was only a portion of my code. That is included in my full script, but it doesn't work.

hmm, well, i created an ini file:

c:\test.ini

and specified it as $inipath (for testing)

and over-wrote your chosen default values with A and S.

as such:

[settings]

ubuntuhotkey=a

winhotkey=s

and when i hit A or S, i get an error, but it does activate the function like it is meant to..

perhaps if you removed the default values, and juts ran with what is in the ini file.

Hm, that's weird, it works now.. I should report that then. That's WEIRD..

Okay, well, thanks!

Can't follow what's been said here.

I don't see any problem with the "^!a" or "^!d" in the defaults or in the ini file, change either and what's in the ini file works.

Remove the setting from the ini file and the default setting works. No errors.
