Create a hotkey for a series of inputs

01 Jan 2018, 17:17

I want to be able to run a script when typing a certain sequence of characters.
For example:

Hold Alt (!), then type A, type B, Type C. (Not all together, one after the other)
My idea was to create a hotkey for !A:: then check if B and C are typed in a certain timespan. If a key other then b is being pressed, exit the script.

Now my question is: How do I check if a Key is being pressed in X ms? Is there a better way to do this whole thing that I just dont know of? Thanks in advance.

Code: Select all

	EndTime := A_TickCount + 3000 ;max. timespan 3 seconds
	Keys = a
		Input, Key, ML1T.2
		Keys .= Key
	Until (A_TickCount > EndTime) Or !InStr("ab",Keys)
	If Keys = abc
		MsgBox, True
		MsgBox, False
