Help with Hotkeys, block sending keys to system

9 posts in this topic

I need some help with hotkeys. I made a hotkey that uses Window Logo button and also one that uses shift.

When I use the window logo button to send the hotkey, the hotkey works, but also the winlogo button triggers the start menu to popup.

So what I would like to do is have autoit not send the winlogo to the system when it's used as a hotkey combo, like Winlogo +1 would do my fuction and not send winlogo to the system to open start menu. But if I press only winlogo button by itself, I would like it to function normally still.

Also same problem with the shift hotkeys, if i do shift + numpad1 it excutes the End button and does not excute my function at all.

Can either or both of these be fixed or worked around with some code? anyone know how? If so please post the code I will need, thanks much!!

Here is some examples from my code:

; ^ Ctrl ! Alt + Shift # Win

HotKeySet("^+{NUMPAD3}", "GetData13")

HotKeySet("^+3", "GetData13")

HotKeySet("#{NUMPAD5}", "PasteData5")

HotKeySet("#5", "PasteData5")

HotKeySet("#+{NUMPAD7}", "PasteData17")

HotKeySet("#+7", "PasteData17")

Summary:

Basically if I wasn't clear enough above. I want the hotkey to work, but block the keys from passing through to the system.

Thanks again,

RiCK

Hi,

no problem here:

HotKeySet('#1', '_1')
HotKeySet('#+1', '_1')
HotKeySet('#^1', '_1')

While 1
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func _1()
    If @HotKeyPressed == '#1' Then ConsoleWrite('! WindowsKey and 1' & @CRLF)
    If @HotKeyPressed == '#+1' Then ConsoleWrite('+> WindowsKey and Shift and 1' & @CRLF)
    If @HotKeyPressed == '#^1' Then ConsoleWrite('> WindowsKey and CTRL and 1' & @CRLF)
EndFunc

Did I mess something up? Or should that also work?

My data is being pasted, however it's still opening the Start Menu :D

Hi,

is your script running? You need a loop!

HotKeySet("#{NUMPAD1}", "PasteData")
HotKeySet("#1", "PasteData")
HotKeySet("#{NUMPAD2}", "PasteData")
HotKeySet("#2", "PasteData")

while 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func PasteData()
    If @HotKeyPressed == '#1' Then PasteData1()
    If @HotKeyPressed == "#{NUMPAD1}" Then PasteData1()
    If @HotKeyPressed == '#2' Then PasteData2()
    If @HotKeyPressed == "#{NUMPAD2}" Then PasteData2()
EndFunc

Func PasteData1()
    ConsoleWrite(@HotKeyPressed & @CRLF)
EndFunc

Func PasteData2()
    ConsoleWrite(@HotKeyPressed & @CRLF)
EndFunc

It works for me!

...You need a loop!...

I beat ya to that point :-)

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...st&p=511555

...once I added the stuff needed to test it :-(

[The While/Sleep/WEnd and the two Functions]

I bet the OP knows that kinda stuff... but I sure like code that I can copy/paste/test.

So much for only having one thread on this topic :-(

Ha, two topics! Okay, that explains a lot.

I sent the OP a PM and asked if he could delete this thread after I posted to the other one. No one had posted to this one at that time.

The OP does not have a high enough "post count" to be able to delete yet. Does anyone know how high in the post count you must get before you can delete your own post (or topic/thread - as long as it has no replies)?
