WINGET return values for non-existing windows

All the subcommands of the WINGET command accept a window specification. For some of the winget subcommands, the following is stated: If there is no matching window, OutputVar is made blank. I believe this statement applies to ALL the subcommands of WINGET. This would also make me feel the statement...

Re: Repeated hotkeys not working remotely with KeyboardHook

@lexicos:

To say that a problem is by design, but not point to documentation about it seems to indicate the documentation is lacking.

Re: System Error Codes documentation

I didn't search from on the microsoft website. I searched for "site:www.microsoft.com" & "system error codes". I misinterpretted the doc. Thanks Gregster. However, one could argue the subtle difference between "search from this website" and "search this website for...". In the latter case, the searc...

At documentation for RUN, under UseErrorLevel, is found Each number corresponds to a specific error condition (to get a list, search www.microsoft.com¬ for "system error codes"). This search will not find the desired information. The correct search should be docs.microsoft.com "system error codes"

Re: Mouse operations intermitently use wrong monitor on multimonitor Windows 7 computer

1. what is DisplayFusion?

2. what is the code you run?

3. Bugs that are not reliably and easily reproducible are VERY difficult to understand or fix. And, if it only occurs when using DisplayFusion--whatever that is--then it is probably not AHK.

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(), 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...

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.

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...
