GUI to set a Hotkey

Recommended Posts

MuffettsMan

I am trying to find a way to set Hotkeys from a GUI so that users can define their own hotkeys without me having to create them manually.... so far I kindof can get it to detect what key was pressed though its far from being able to report if someone wanted to assing say Shift+Alt+G furthermore from the way i have hacked together it to detect which key was pressed i'm losing alot of the range of what Ispressed can find (ie all the keys that don't resolve directly to a number)

anyone have some tips to make my code cleaner? here is a streamlined version of what i'm attempting:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <Misc.au3>
$dll = DllOpen("user32.dll")

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 136, 150, 193, 125)
$BindLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Key is Bound to:", 18, 24, 94, 16, $SS_CENTER)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("<No Key Bound>", 24, 40, 89, 21, BitOR($ES_CENTER,$ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_READONLY))
$SetKey = GUICtrlCreateButton("Set Key", 32, 64, 75, 25, 0)
$Clear = GUICtrlCreateButton("Clear Key", 32, 96, 75, 25, 0)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $SetKey
            $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Press any key", 24, 40, 89, 21, BitOR($ES_CENTER,$ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_READONLY))
            BindKeyFunc()
        Case $Clear
            ClearFunc()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func BindKeyFunc()
    $KeyPressed = GetKeyPressed()
    $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput($KeyPressed, 24, 40, 89, 21, BitOR($ES_CENTER,$ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_READONLY))
EndFunc

Func ClearFunc()
    $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Key Unbound", 24, 40, 89, 21, BitOR($ES_CENTER,$ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_READONLY))
EndFunc


;  10 SHIFT key
;  11 CTRL key
;  12 ALT key
Func GetKeyPressed()
        while 1
            for $i = 8 to 222
                If _IsPressed($i, $dll) Then
                    Return $i
                EndIf
            Next
        wend
EndFunc;GetKeyPressed()==>

Don't let that status fool you, I am no advanced memeber!
