ESC don work as normal

15 Feb 2019, 16:53

Hallo

My program is making a Gui and I want to close it with ESC

Code: Select all

esc::
{	GUI, hide
	return
}
But when the GUI is hided (fine) but other programs do not "know" if I hit esc again.

What do I do to make esc work to hide my gui when my gui is shown and when the gui is hidden the esc should work normal to other programs.

Thanks for you answers.

You can either make the hotkey context sensitive using

Code: Select all

#IfWinActive the title of your window
    Esc::GUI, hide
#IfWinActive
or you can use the gui event label

Code: Select all

GuiEscape:
    GUI, hide
return
Please excuse my spelling I am dyslexic.
