Volume adjust script?

Recommended Posts

blackhydra866

I'm still really terrible at making scripts and i'd really like something to quickly change the master volume of my computer on the fly. I just got a really nice gaming headset so it would be nice to have this right now. Also I don't have a keyboard with a volume shortcut.

I want F9 to mute all, F11 to increase master volume up a tick, and F12 to decrease master volume a tick.

(i don't want to use F10 since that exits most steam games like TF2 instantly :) )

Thanks in advance.

Try this (NOT TESTED):

HotKeySet("{PAUSE}","Quit");Press PAUSE to quit
HotKeySet("{F9}","VolumeMute")
HotKeySet("{F11}","VolumeUp")
HotKeySet("{F12}","VolumeDown")

While 1
    Sleep(50)
WEnd

Func Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func VolumeMute()
    Send("{VOLUME_MUTE}")
EndFunc

Func VolumeUp()
    Send("{VOLUME_UP}")
EndFunc

Func VolumeDown()
    Send("{VOLUME_DOWN}")
EndFunc

It all worked except for F12, when I hit it it does nothing. The script looks fine to me though..

from help file. I had the same issue with another app.

The following hotkeys cannot be set:

Ctrl+Alt+Delete It is reserved by Windows

F12 It is also reserved by Windows, according to its API.

NumPad's Enter Key Instead, use {Enter} which captures both Enter keys on the keyboard.

Win+B,D,E,F,L,M,R,U; and Win+Shift+M These are built-in Windows shortcuts. Note: Win+B and Win+L might only be reserved on Windows XP and above.

Alt, Ctrl, Shift, Win These are the modifier keys themselves!

Other Any global hotkeys a user has defined using third-party software, any combos of two or more "base keys" such as '{F1}{F2}', and any keys of the form '{LALT}' or '{ALTDOWN}'.

Some systems reserve the F12 key for other uses and it should not be used as a hotkey. There used to be a warning in the help file about that but I can't seem to find it now.

Thanks a lot for the help so far guys! But i'm having a little problem now.

I've changed the code to this:

HotKeySet("{SCROLLLOCK}","Quit");Press PAUSE to quit
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}","VolumeMute")
HotKeySet("{PGUP}","VolumeUp")
HotKeySet("{PGDOWN}","VolumeDown")

While 1
    Sleep(50)
WEnd

Func Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func VolumeMute()
    Send("{VOLUME_MUTE}")
EndFunc

Func VolumeUp()
    Send("{VOLUME_UP}")
EndFunc

Func VolumeDown()
    Send("{VOLUME_DOWN}")
EndFunc

But for some reason when I hit page down to turn the volume down a tick it actually pans the master volume to the left a tick instead. Everything else works fine. Really strange.
