Re: How to add a 'datestamp'

Took me some time to figure out how to get it going. Lack of experience one thing. The "Browser_Back" can not be used in the script above, it will work fine with a script using only the last 3 lines, I had tested this and therefore it took me some time to find out that it will not work with the adde...

Re: How to add a 'datestamp'

I am reviving this thread after having used the simple 'date' stamping which is very helpful for me. I have found that often I download files, datasheets via Firefox to the Downloads folder and loose track of what I have got there. Lately I have tried to follow up instantly with going to the downloa...

Re: Making a syntax-highlighting scheme for AHK: Full List of Special Words?

I am an EditpadPro user, some years ago I looked at making syntax highlighting for simple text editing, I had to give up still too complicated for me. I am very new to AHK so the following is probably not of use. If you are looking at making syntax scheme(s) I will assume you have also found in AHK ...

Re: How to add a 'datestamp'

just me thank you for your post. I looked at the information at: https://autohotkey.com/docs/commands/KeyWait.htm "Waits for a key or mouse/joystick button to be released or pressed down." My understanding is that the following KeyWait, a Used in a script, the script will stop running waiting for a...

MannyKSoSo It is very late here, but I confirm it does work, when I posted my previous entry I started thinking about wht other options and what came to mind was "Input" but I did not get around to check, so I ma rather happy that I was thinking in the right direction. I am thinking up a few improv...

Re: How to add a 'datestamp'

swagfag

The result of your script suggestion is now :180928-.glk(Left 4)

Interestingly, if it was supposed to have waited for input it would almost be correct. My head is spinning, I think it is time to go and do some gardening for change of mind. :)

Re: How to add a 'datestamp'

MannyKSoSo The 'Keywait' does not seem to have any effect on my system, I tried a couple of other characters, Control and 'a' just following some leads by searching. Then I remembered reading about Keyhooks and following some pointers I arrived at how to check for Keyhook and see the following for ...

Re: How to add a 'datestamp'

MannyKSoSo I have allocated your script to run as AutoHotkeyU32.ahk, still struggling to get my head around using the default script option, but good fun. By now I had figured out the connection to some of the keys on the multimedia key range on this keyboard, beauty with few extra dedicated keys t...

Re: How to add a 'datestamp'

Yes it does work so now the first suggested script looks like this: Browser_Back:: FormatTime timestamp, A_Now, yyMMdd- Send % timestamp return So when I press the "Browser_Back" key, wherever the focus is, like here: 180927- that takes care of the filename/folder name "header". How do I input the '...

Re: How to add a 'datestamp'

Ouch, I did not think properly. I downloaded both scripts above and renamed first one AutoHotkey64.ahk and the second one as AutoHotkey.ahk, they both work in a fashion. Will return to that. The main thing now I have lost my normal search with ctl-F and also the applications F1 key macro, I did expe...

Re: How to add a 'datestamp'

Thank you both, I can understand the first line in both replies and will try and decode the rest. F1:: ie hot key is F1 ^f:: ie hot key selection is ctl-f That will do me for tonight, tomorrow I will look at the rest when I have re-read the start tutorial. Need to do that because of short term memory.

How to add a 'datestamp'

Some months ago I tried to study up on AutoHotKey for a very simple task but failed to understand or get it. I believe it is very simple so not getting it under my own steam, I will blame my advanced years. I have just registered in an effort to see if I can get an answer to my problem. (have done a...
