Re: Employ Useless Duplicate Set of Keys

Thank you, jeeswg for this helpful reply. And for all you do for AHK!

And thank you, IMEime, for this helpful tip. I'll look into it.

One final query: Does anyone know of a way to search this forum for a precise phrase (such as duplicate numpad)? Quotes don't work.

Thanks,
Era

Employ Useless Duplicate Set of Keys

OK. I partly solved this with this code: NumpadUp:: send, numeric keypad up return Up:: send, main keyboard up return But I still can't quite get the hotstring version working. GoaI: I'd like to reassign the set of keys that duplicate the numeric keypad on my keyboard. For example, there is a Home k...

How to Click a Button in a Web Page?

I'd like to simulate a mouse-click on this button. How can that be done? Here's the Chrome HTML for the button: <button class="btn btn-success" ng-click="$ctrl.submit()" ng-disabled="!$ctrl.canSubmitReply()"> <!----><span translate="DISCUSSION_SUBMIT_REPLY" ng-if="!item" ng-show="!submitting" aria-h...

Re: Simple File Explorer Fix

Thanks again for this explanation. Yes, soundbeep works. I have a souped-up Alienware computer so maybe it's just flying past the audio. When I add Wait, there's a brief, quiet, high-frequency bip, nothing else.

Re: Simple File Explorer Fix

Thanks for this. I'm going to save it to use in other scripts, after I figure it out!

Re: Still confused about when to use % with variables? This helped me figure it out

You and most of us. What's the use of those differently punctuated variable names? Makes no sense to me

Re: Code won't type letters Topic is solved

Isn't there an AHK equivalent of something like this:

If Asc(s) > 96 Then
s = UCase(s)
Else
s = LCase(s)
End If

Re: Simple File Explorer Fix

Thank you, gregster. I need to figure out #persistent.

swagfag's use of:

SetTimer, % fn, 50

makes me wonder how much of an impact running timers like this has on the CPU usage.

Thanks for the info on the directives/commands. I think I need to calm down and do more reading about how AHK works. :?

Re: Simple File Explorer Fix

Thank you. This seems more generalized and certainly more sophisticated than my version. I can't test it though because my version is running (it's in my ahk startup file) and I don't yet know how to selectively turn off running scripts. Also, I don't fully understand how your code works, but I'll s...

Simple File Explorer Fix

Here's my solution to a problem that's been plaguing me for years, but is there something better? (Purer, more programmatic code than that found in my newbie script below?) When I open the File Explorer window, the scrollbar is always halfway down so you can't even see the (so called) Quick Access z...

I understand your point. When I've learned more about v1, I'll study v2. Maybe have some suggestions. In the meantime, I do hope they decide to eliminate :=

You know best. To me, though, it does have to do with V2. Sorry I didn't respond to your query.

Re: A Bit Baffling

You prove your main argument that the over head of OOP exists. You have not yet defeated the counter argument that the over head gives the programmer better abilities over the long run. You're right, but I don't think proof is possible because the dispute isn't fundamentally about programming; it's...

Re: A Bit Baffling

In any sensible programming language, Hello World! would require only a single line of code, not ten. So, by effectively proving my primary argument (although clearly you are quite unconscious of having done so), I must hope that you become at some point aware that your blithe self-confidence can be...

Re: A Bit Baffling

My dear Mr. ? SwagFag: Functions can be provided with input/output descriptions via comments...so you don't need to tax your pretty head with reading the code within. I/O comments are quite like OOP in that way, without the messy code hiding and cascade. You can tell people what to put in , and wha...
