Re: WinMove changes dialog box size

Tried the "remote desktop connection" example on Windows 7 Pro, AHK 1.1.32. The effect is not seen there.

Re: Curious bug, pc hibernates after mouse wheel scroll

Followed your link to github. I couldn't find the script there. And,if all that is there is a compiled script (which I also did not find), no one in this forum can help you. The last thing I would ever do is run someone else's compiled script.

OnMessage() - Maxthreads parameter

OnMessage(), at the definition of the Maxthreads parameters, says: [v1.1.20+]: Specify 0 to unregister a previously registered function. If Function is a string, the "legacy" monitor is removed. Otherwise, only the given function object is unregistered. Further down in the topic--way beyond the para...

Label, definition of

A hotkey is a label. While the LABELs help section does not state so EXPLICITLY, it does put it thusly: Hotkey and hotstring labels are also valid targets for Goto, Gosub and other commands. Before that Label says: A label identifies a line of code, and can be used as a Goto target or to form a subr...

Re: Issue with Label names and hotkeys

@Scripter : Here is a solution, rather simple for your problem. Add an "*" to the Hotkey label.
AHK considers the label for a hotkey everything other than the trailing "::".

*F1::
MsgBox, Hotkey F1 was pressed.
return

F1:
MsgBox, Label F1 was executed.
return

F2::
GoSub F1
return

Re: Issue with Label names and hotkeys

I see that the LABELS help section defines Hotkeys as labels, as Gregster pointed out. However, the general section on Hotkeys does not SPECIFICALLY state a hotkey is a label. It does,however, imply it, by mentioning that the string is a label. This brings to light a documentation issue (as does alm...

Re: Hangs because of a missing comma!

what a rude reply. The guy is trying to be helpful, pointing out something that is broken. Don't yell at him just because AHK does a crappy job of validating parameters. Without the comma, 945 0x3e2fdcf is a coordinate. This parameter can be an expression, so it evaluates to 9450x3e2fdcf. Then, 50 b...

The documentation suggestions has been made into it's own subforum. (I asked that that old, long single thread topic be closed, but that idea was not liked.

Re: Problem with AHK in game

1. no one can help you fix your code--if that is the problem--without seeing your code.

2. If it has something to do with CRMP most people can't help you because they don't have CRMP.

3. What is going wrong is not very clearly stated.

Random and out-of-range min and max values

How the RANDOM command works when a MIN or MAX value is out of the supported range is not documented. For example, the following works but certainly not as I would expect. Since MIN is 2147483647 and since the highest advertised value that can be returned is also 2147483647, I would expect it to eit...

Re: missing functions in documentation list

this brings up another point. In the https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/index.htm section (which lists commands and functions) the ONEXIT() function is not listed. ONEXIT is both a function and a command. Therein lies the problem. It needs to be shown as BOTH, as is done, for example, with STR...

Re: BlockInput isn't disabled whenever an Alt event is sent

Of course, blockinput doesn't work in your sample code. Because, you don't have a blockinput command. Please provide a script that shows your problem.

Thanks for all the positive feedback. However, everyone is missing two points, which, because of my tendency to be verbose, were probably glossed over.

uninitialized

Suggestion: In the doc, spell UNINITIALIZED the American way. UNINITIALISED is a British spelling, and FAR FAR more uncommon. This may be going to an extreme, but that is my habit. I was looking at some code (an beautiful example by nnnik about sorting and dupes) which included: str := "" for each, ...
