Uu

Recommended Posts

Achilles

This originally created by Larry, I think. I modified it slightly to make it a tool that is great for making your regular tasks going faster. What you do is press Ctrl twice and then whatever and then enter. For example: "fire" and then enter. It would then run firefox (if you have it programmed to, as it is below). Here is the part you modify:

Switch $command 
        Case 'avg' 
            Run('C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8\avgupd.exe')
        Case 'fire'
            Run('C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe') 
        Case 'foobar'
            Run('C:\Program Files\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe')
        Case 'gmail' 
            Run('C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe "www.gmail.com"') 
        Case 'msn'
            Run('C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger\msnmsgr.exe')
            
        Case 'exit' 
            Exit
    EndSwitch
You can add whatever you want (obviously) in the case statements. I'm currently trying to make a avgupdate command but first have to figure out how to update AVG using AutoIt. However, there are tons of ways this could be used.. for your media player, for sending text and the list goes on...

--> exit to exit <-- muttley

It's called Uu because it was originally programmed so that you press U twice to show run something but I think this works better.

Comments and ideas welcome, this is pretty easy to modify yourself..

You forgot add GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $gui) and i don`t understand, why need to use keyboard hook? Only for processing the Enter key? muttley Unreasonably IMHO...

:) That's what I get for writing this late at night, however the key hook is still needed for when you press control twice... I think I might change enter to being hotkeyset so that the enter doesn't get sent to the active window.

I found a bug. If you go to a window, and open Uu then Alt+Tab, it will not come back!
Well, actually it's just left behind the window... This won't completely solve the problem (because I don't think many people will be pressing Alt+Tab when in the middle of such a simple script) but it will make it so that when you press control twice again the window comes to the top...

And I'm not many people...

You're one person, but since you matter I changed it muttley The window now is always on top (until a command is entered), plus enter is no longer sent to the active window.

Edit: @Rasim, I don't won't this popping up when the script starts, I placed in my startup and I don't need right when I startup so it's easier just to keep hidden until needed.

muttley I suppose I do, since rasim isn't a word I recognize my mind always reads Racism without me even realizing it...

Edit: I updated it so that you have to press Control twice within 500ms...

I fixed the problem with if you hold down control it shows up... Holding down Ctrl is pretty common so this kept on popping up when I was just trying to select files..

One thing: change

If $wParam = $WM_KEYDOWN Then

to

If $wParam = $WM_KEYUP Then

beause the down-event is sent multiple times, when you press a key a longer time.

I would do that except I think it makes the program feel unresponsive. If you have to wait until you release the key it just seems as if the program is going to slow and didn't automatically realize you pressed the key. Also, with the "If $diff < 50" I added it means that by if you hold down control it won't trigger this program (at least on my computer).

Hey. you should check out how i did my command prompt. you might like it. you can run any thing in the current directory by just CD RUN [filename].

Wow, that's a nice program, I hadn't looked at that yet... I'm not sure how I would implement in a simple way 'cause I would have to add the entire part with the active directory.

LOL this script is totaly ALSOME smile.gif

Thanks
