sizeable+moveable floating readonly Edit box?

I want to pop up a read-only Edit control to display a continually updating series of logfile entries. I want my user to be able to move the box anywhere, and resize it, and select text to copy to clipboard. Also want a button on my main gui to show/hide this log display box. I think I need to make ...

Re: How do I respond to rbutton pressed in my gui?

Thank you very much, punchin!
MouseGetPos looks as though it should do exactly what I need.

Re: How do I respond to rbutton pressed in my gui?

ListView has way too much functionality for my purposes. I just want a few static lists of from 3 to perhaps 20 selectable text items each, with content established at initialization and not modified during execution. No sorting, no icons, no multiple-field rows, no multiple selections. I have an RB...

Re: How do I respond to rbutton pressed in my gui?

In the listview put a gLabel along with the AltSubmit option. Then at the gLabel place the following code: gLabel: IfEqual, A_GuiEvent, C { If GetKeyState ("RButton") MsgBox, I'm holding Right Click! } To detect when the button is released, change "C" to "RightClick". Well, I do not have a ListView...

Re: "winclose" not working in Windows 10?

You could try one of the following: PostMessage, 0x112, 0xF060,,, %Win% WinKill Thank you! The PostMessage works. WinKill has no visible effect, just like winclose. While your suggestion solves my particular problem I don't want to mark the thread "solved" yet, as I hope that someone with more unde...

"winclose" not working in Windows 10?

I just migrated to windows 10. Painful process, had to get new drivers for video card and several other things... but mostly have stuff working now I think. But my game-monitoring app can no longer close the game windows. Here's the relevant code: Close_isN: Gui +OwnDialogs MsgBox 0x40004, ,Close_is...

Re: beeps stopped working? what to look for?

Check the properties of AutoHotkey.exe (or whichever executable you are using) and ensure compatibility settings are disabled. You can also try renaming the executable (to disassociate it from certain registry settings) and/or try a different AutoHotkey*.exe (i.e. 32-bit vs 64-bit). AutoHotkey will...

Re: beeps stopped working? what to look for?

Are you using SoundPlay with a filename or with numeric parameters like *-1 ? SoundBeep and SoundPlay * both fall under 'System Sounds' in the volume mixer, whereas if you specify a sound file, AutoHotkey itself will appear in the volume mixer until the script exits. I would check the volume mixer ...

beeps stopped working? what to look for?

I am running Windows 7 Professional on an AMD system, with the Windows virus protection enabled. I also occasionally run Trend Micro Housecall to double-check. While I know it isn't necessary, a while ago I bought a paid subscription to the DriverUpdate program. It seems to work as advertised, updat...

Re: sendinput not effective when hotstrings in use?

... (re: would the impact occur if I switched languages) ... Yes, as it says in the manual, "a low-level hook in programs other than AutoHotkey v1.0.43" "disables all of SendInput's advantages". This suggests another possible twist... will a v1.0.43 script detect and temporarily disconnect a hook i...

Re: sendinput not effective when hotstrings in use?

Thank you again, that does clarify the situation considerably. Especially your explanation that a single script which knows that it is using a hook will uninstall the hook temporarily to allow SendInput to work as desired. As to the "who recommended what" aspects of the exchange... I am a newcomer w...

Re: sendinput not effective when hotstrings in use?

Who ever recommended running multiple scripts ? You did. By implication, when you extended AHK into a powerful general purpose language. If this were just a hotkey/hotstring tool one script at a time would make sense. But if it is a programming language you must expect people to use it to write pro...

sendinput not effective when hotstrings in use?

I was just reading the documentation on the variations of send, sendinput, and so on. Sendinput is recommended as normally the best way to send keys. Faster, more reliable etc. So I have been using sendinput all the time. However, I then saw a statement that the advantages of sendinput are negated w...

Re: convert hotkey syntax to send input syntax?

Thank you all. I'm more interested in keeping it simple for the user than in supporting all key combinations... my user will just have to use something that does not produce "none" in the control. The control only produces one key. Pressing a second one replaces what is there. So the question of del...

convert hotkey syntax to send input syntax?

My game-monitor app supports simple autofire hotkeys. A hotkey to toggle the autofire on and off, and another key to send to the game repeatedly until toggled off. (with specified interval between keys, and notification beeps as the keys are toggled on and off). Not hard to do. But I did not want my...

Re: unwanted extra characters?

update the problem manifests mostly when I type at normal speeds. If I enter the keys one at a time, I do not get so many extras. I tried a minimal Windows diagnostic boot. (safe mode) I still get the problem typing at a dos prompt in safe mode. Which suggests a problem with rollover handling in the...
