Re: Way to have Send send literal { and } withought trying to interpret them? (not SendRaw) Topic is solved

Thanks, BoBo. I looked at the docs and tried it in the code, but I don't think it will work. It looked promising though, thanks.

Any other ideas? Why doesn't escaping them seem to do anything?

Re: Office Clipboard

I can't help with COM, but maybe there is a way to do what you want without using the clipboard? This function 'pastes' text directly into the active input capable GUI control: _paste(text) { controlgetfocus, control, % winexist("a") control, editpaste, %text%, %control% return errorlevel }

Way to have Send send literal { and } withought trying to interpret them? (not SendRaw) Topic is solved

I am working with code that relies heavily on the Send command and handles blocks of text from multiple sources including the clipboard. I'm trying to take as many use cases into account as possible and one issue I've seen is if a text block has { and } in it, such as a piece of AHK code, then the S...

Re: LONG STORY. Input/InputHook(), Hotstring(), AHK_H, ETC

Ok... I thought about what would be needed to convert my code to not rely on the Input command as much. I realized a couple of things, and wrote a little test code... Then modified my script, and it looks like it works??? It can't be that easy! :headwall: #singleinstance, ignore #installkeybdhook se...

Re: LONG STORY. Input/InputHook(), Hotstring(), AHK_H, ETC

Thank you swagfag. I am pretty sure this can't be done, at least not without starting my script from scratch, but I would be happy for a second opinion. :D My script is supposed to be a text expansion and replacement app. It draws these replacements from the strings.txt file. Each (non empty) line i...

Re: LONG STORY. Input/InputHook(), Hotstring(), AHK_H, ETC

I have been trying to fix this for a few days, and I have realized embarrassingly late that what I am trying to do is not possible. My code relies heavily on the built in monitoring and reactions of the Input command (EndKey and MatchList). So no matter what I do with the content of variables AFTER ...

Re: AutoHotKey Password

This is probably far more complicated than you are looking for, but I wrote an app in AutoHotkey years ago that does this:
https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2265

You set trigger codes and when you type them into a small prompt the app can execute programs, open files, load websites etc.

Re: Using shift as a modifier?

Well, you could have a shif-a hotkey:

Code: Select all

+a::send, F
But that would not be specifically LEFT shift. Does this work?

Re: Passing variables to another script...

It is certainly possible, and there are several ways to do it. I am curious though, why not just have everything happen in the elevated script? The two easiest ways to pass variables between scripts are: Have a text file that one script writes content to and the second script reads from on a timer. ...

Re: LONG STORY. Input/InputHook(), Hotstring(), AHK_H, ETC

Hmmm, OK. See, the last time I really worked with AHK InputHook() and Switch didn't exist, at all. So your code is about 95% gibberish to me. :crazy:

I will tinker with it and see if I can learn from it and if it can be applied to my problem. Thanks!

Re: LONG STORY. Input/InputHook(), Hotstring(), AHK_H, ETC

Hi swagfag . Thanks for replying. I assume you mean copy the input to a middle-man variable so it's not lost when the Input blanks its variable. That is the only thing that came to mind for me to, only it's more complicated than that. I remember when I first wrote this, something like 7 years ago, t...

Re: Transform a character into a word from a list Topic is solved

Sooo... Apparently associative array keys have always been case insensitive, and it has caused annoyance for years. There are some work arounds though, like: array := {Asc("a"):"1",Asc("A"):"2"} MsgBox % array[Asc("a")] MsgBox % array[Asc("A")] comChar := Asc("b") array := {Asc("a"):"add", Asc("b"):...

That is... Strange, and a little unsettling. I tried StringCaseSense but that doesn't affect it. Surely arrays CAN be case sensitive? Right???

Re: Transform a character into a word from a list Topic is solved

If you create an array instead of a match-list you would be able to reduce the rest of your code. What's the source of your data (file/clipboard/...)? Darn it, BoBO. You got there ahead of me. But I have a code example, so HA! :D comChar := "b" array := {"a":"Add", "b":"Bench", "d":"Delete"} comCha...
