override other program hotkeys?

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if it's possible to override another program's hotkeys with autoIt? I know the help file says you can't:

"Any global hotkeys a user has defined using third-party software...."

But I know other similar programs allow you to do this. Just wondering if there was a way with autoIt.

Thanks

Well, obviously the people who wrote AutoIt wrote most the help file. So what does that tell you? You can not.

I used the _IsPressed function, which worked out more or less the way I wanted it to.

thanks for your help, Justin Reno.

An alternative to using _IsPressed could be to use DllCall in combination with SetWindowsHookEx (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms644990(VS.85).aspx) and making a WH_KEYBOARD_LL (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms644985(VS.85).aspx). Search the forum about WH_KEYBOARD_LL and it will surely pop up some examples that uses it.

That way you would not need to constantly poll the keys you want 'detect'. :D
