Connect Hotkey to program

Recommended Posts



I've tried to connect two hotkeys with two functions,

the first hotkey should Start a program and the second hotkey should exit it, but the problem is that I can't find a way to put it in a loop.

Any1 knows if I can put functions in loops?

Or if it can be done in an other way?

Simple demo:

HotKeySet("{PGUP}", "_Start")
HotKeySet("{PGDN}", "_Stop")
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Quit")

While 1

Func _Start()
    If Not WinExists("Untitled - Notepad") Then Run("notepad.exe")
EndFunc   ;==>_Start

Func _Stop()
    If WinExists("Untitled - Notepad") Then WinClose("Untitled - Notepad")
EndFunc   ;==>_Stop

Func _Quit()
EndFunc   ;==>_Quit
