MouseClickDrag function not working

Hello, What would cause MouseClickDrag to not work and is there a way to improve its function? I'm using Camtasia video editing software and I've got a number of steps which are repetitive, hence my use of an AutoHotkey script. In one part of the process, I remove a small section of the recording. D...

Stop looping thread without killing script Topic is solved

Hello, Is there a way to stop or interrupt a looping thread without killing the script (ie without closing the .ahk file)? Suppose you have a script which contains several threads (each with its own hotkey), and suppose one of the threads has a Loop, 99 command. Once you press the hotkey to begin ru...

Re: AHK determine if window is Maximized or not Topic is solved

Thanks boiler & Epialis.

Both of your posts were very helpful.

I got just the solution I needed for the current situation plus I have a new function in my AHK bag of tricks.

AHK determine if window is Maximized or not Topic is solved

Hello, Does AutoHotkey have a method for determining if a particular window is Maximized or not? In other words, I want to include an IF command in my script to ask if the window is maximized. For example, suppose you have a script which needs to end with one sequence of commands if the active windo...

Display list of user threads, not user posts

Hello, How do you create a list of the titles of threads you have created or participated in? I know that there are two places which display a user's posts : Username drop-down > User Control Panel > Show your posts Username drop-down > Profile > Search user's posts However, rather than listing ever...

How to know when to enclose something in percent marks (%'s)

Hello, What does it mean when something is enclosed in %'s and how do you know when to use them? I was recently looking up something on an unrelated topic in the docs (https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/LoopReadFile.htm) and came across an example script in which A_Index and other built-in var...

Re: Save multiple separate values for pasting later in the script

Thanks for the great information braunbaer . I love getting solutions which cause me to learn an AHK function I've never used before. I found an example in the docs which combines Loop, read, . . . with Loop, parse, . . . to get one value at a time: F1:: Loop, read, C:\Database Export.txt { Loop, pa...

For example, suppose you have a website which stores membership records and each record includes four fields: First Name Last Name DOB Phone Numbe...

That's why I said you should use Gui, Submit instead of Gui, Destroy if you're planning on displaying the GUI again.
That's all it needed.

Argh! I keep thinking I've got this but now I'm having another issue. Pressing a hotkey opens the GUI—just as I want.

Re: GUI modification questions

You can't change the color of text in buttons, at least not through "normal" means. Also, be careful in how you treat parameters in commands. Not keeping them in their proper place is what caused an issue before with your GUI title not appearing. Parameters aren't just a list of items that you can ...
