Re: Shell hook handling (not really a bug)

I am sort of a sensitive type, so I'm gonna stick to "Ask for Help" section for the time being. And, for the record, I certainly didn't mean to be questioning the AHK developer! I have been continually impressed with AHK's robustness, integrity and utility, not to mention the quality of documentatio...

Shell hook handling (not really a bug)

I and other users who are using a registered shell hook to detect window activation, are finding that we need to test for shell hook code 32772 as well as 4. Some users have been equating 32772 = HSHELL_RUDEAPPACTIVATED but I haven't found any Microsoft documentation of that. At https://msdn.microso...

Re: Switch/Case statement

Hey thanks! At first I didn't understand why your code works, I had to look back at the documentation to discover that an operator at the start of a line is parsed as a continuation of the previous line -- I never knew AHK did that! Learning something every day. :-)

any UNscripted key

My AHK script turns on a certain state variable in response to some of the scripted keystrokes. Is there some way I can turn off that state variable when the user types any key that is NOT in the script (e.g. goes back to regular old typing without control/alt/shift modifiers)? I found some forum th...

Re: Switch/Case statement

YES, I want to pile on to this request. Adding a switch/case syntax is my #1+ wish for AHK. It comes up a lot in typical AHK applications: the user pressed key X, but what it does depends on some condition (e.g. window class) that has multiple cases.

Re: 4k window manager

Some Windows Aero themes include transparent window borders that make the window sizer appear to produce undersize windows. The following new release solves this. While I was at it I also streamlined the coding and changed the numeric keypad assignments slightly, so now they are (Numlock OFF): 1 ful...

Re: avoid triggering Ctrl-Alt-Delete

Thanks Masonjar13 and TheDewd. I feel like you have both resolved my question, albeit unsolved: I will stop trying to move the immovable. ;-)

Ooh, tricky! I love it. But, it doesn't work -- same result. :-(

Re: avoid triggering Ctrl-Alt-Delete

You could try something like this... ^!d:: KeyWait, LAlt ; Wait until Left Alt is released before sending ^{Del} Send, ^{Del} return Yeah, I thought of that, but it won't work for the purpose. I typically want to delete several words in a row, which means my behavior is holding down ^! and then hit...

avoid triggering Ctrl-Alt-Delete

I have a script that includes: ^!d::SendInput ^{Del} Because the Alt key is still depressed when the SendInput function sends the ^{Del}, it is triggering the task manager instead of having the desired, less dramatic :-) result of simply deleting the next word in my document. I can't figure out how ...

4k window manager

This is a butt-simple window manager designed specifically for 4k monitors. It's not really a full-blown window manager, just a window *sizer*, I use it in conjunction with iSwitchw for a complete window management solution more appropriate than Microsoft "Windows" for the large real estate availabl...
