how to hotkey + # ^

5 posts in this topic

i am completely confused because i can't get it going: hotkeying "+","#","^".

i tried everything (even hex and vk_codes):

HotKeySet("a","alpha")
HotKeySet("{+}","plus")
HotKeySet("{ASC 043}","plus2")
$x=Chr(43)
HotKeySet("{"&$x&"}","plus3")
HotKeySet($x,"plus4")
HotKeySet("{#}","cross")
HotKeySet("{^}","circumflex")
HotKeySet("<","smaller")
HotKeySet(">","bigger")
HotKeySet("!<","bigger")

While 1
    GUIGetMsg()
WEnd

Func alpha()
    MsgBox(0,"","a")
EndFunc

Func plus()
    MsgBox(0,"","+")
EndFunc

Func plus2()
    MsgBox(0,"","+2")
EndFunc

Func plus3()
    MsgBox(0,"","+3")
EndFunc

Func plus4()
    MsgBox(0,"","+4")
EndFunc

Func cross()
    MsgBox(0,"","#")
EndFunc

Func circumflex()
    MsgBox(0,"","^")
EndFunc

Func smaller()
    MsgBox(0,"","<")
EndFunc

Func bigger()
    MsgBox(0,"",">")
EndFunc

so why not possible ?

thank you very much

Probably not what you want to hear..

On most standard keyboards to type the + you would press Shift and Equal keys to type + symbol

So in reality you can't press the plus key without first pressing the shift key. (with the exception of Num Pad + key of coarse)

So wouldn't it just be easy to use HotKeySet("+=","plus")?

Same thing goes for the other keys such as:

"#" would be HotKeySet("+3","cross")

"^" would be HotKeySet("+6","circumflex")

Cheers

Edit:

HotKeySet("{ESC}","Esc")
HotKeySet("+=","plus")
HotKeySet("+3","cross")
HotKeySet("+6","circumflex")
HotKeySet("+,","smaller")
HotKeySet("+.","bigger")

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func plus()
    MsgBox(0,"","+", 1)
EndFunc

Func cross()
    MsgBox(0,"","#", 1)
EndFunc

Func circumflex()
    MsgBox(0,"","^", 1)
EndFunc

Func smaller()
    MsgBox(0,"","<", 1)
EndFunc

Func bigger()
    MsgBox(0,"",">", 1)
EndFunc

Func Esc()
    Exit
EndFunc

{RSHIFT} {LSHIFT} {RWIN} {LWIN} etc. Try reading the send key list.

I was reading the send key list as was jennico by the look of his example of what he tied.

So how was that spose to help in pressing the plus as a hotkey?

thanx

of course i read the sendkeylist.

Send Command (if zero flag) Resulting Keypress

{!} !

{#} #

{+} +

{^} ^

the problem is, send() works fine with + # ^, while hotkeyset() does not. why the difference ?

my keyboard is a German one, and the three keys + # ^ are unshifted, while ! is shifted and makes no problem hotkeying it. that's the problem.

so anyone has an idea ? maybe double-shifting ? modifying the modifier keys ? using the MapVirtualKeyEx Function ? does this make sense ? anyone who has experiences in that ?

j.

edit:

- _ispressed does not do it, because still passes the keypress

- wm_keydown with guiregister does not work globally and not with editboxes

There is a suggestion to the autoit team: change the modifiers !^+# to chars which can internationally be used ! why not ABCD for example ? they can easily be hotkeyed by +a +b +c +d and still be used as modifiers.

or maybe S=shift A=alt C=ctrl W=win ?

this would be a nice tribute to foreign kblayouts !

edit:

maybe it is possible to modify these modifiers manually ? how ?

edit:

maybe one of the developers can give me the api call scource of hotkeypress ? so i can try to modify it. unfortunately it is not in the "included" section. this would be easy.
