Assigning Hotkeys

Recommended Posts

BChat

I have a script:

Sleep(250)

Send("bchat")

I created a shortcut to the script, put the shortcut on the task bar (Windows Vista Ultimate), now when I press the Windows key plus the "1"

key, the script works. Now I'd like to assign the script to a set of key strokes, ex: Ctrl + Shift.

I see in Help, that Ctrl = "^" and Shift = "+", and I assume I use this format:

HotKeySet ( "key" [, "function"] )

HotKeySet ("^+" [, "Send"] ) is as far as I get.

Where/how do I add the "bchat"?

TIA

There is already a shortcut on the taskbar?

RightClick->Properties->ShortcutKey-> yadayadayada (will launch the script)

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")
Func Terminate()
Exit 0
EndFunc ;==>Terminate

-the above is a hotkey function demo. Did you want the script to sendkeys somewhere?

HotKeySet ("^+" [, "Send"] ) is as far as I get.

You can not set build-in functions there, and you can not catch Ctrl + Shift only, you need there some key, use this:

HotKeySet("^+s", "_Send")

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _Send()
    Send("bchat")
EndFunc

I copied this into a new script - Ctrl Shift S doesn't do anything.

BUT - I think I have learned that using Ctrl and Shift may not be good key choices.

ETA - NOW the script is working just as it should. I don't know if it is Vista or me, but this is the 2nd time I have seen AutoIt scripts stop or start working for no apparent reason.
