Make the script work only in a specific window

12 Apr 2020, 16:45

Hi. Nice to greet you.
Very recently, I started to study the AHK syntax a bit, mainly to make accessible some audio programs that are not well labeled for screen readers. I am in awe of the possibilities, and have already been able to do some simple scripts.
I want to see how to make keyboard shortcuts only work in the plug-in window, and not in another. To not trigger things by mistake outside that window. This is the code for something I have done to use a virtual instrument called Perfect Drum.
Thank you in advance for any help.
Cheers!

Code: Select all

SoundBeep, 440, 50
oSPVoice := ComObjCreate("SAPI.SpVoice")
oSpVoice.Rate := 5
oSpVoice.Volume :=75
oSpVoice.Speak("Script iniciado. Pulse f 1 Para la lista de comandos.")

Re: Make the script work only in a specific window

12 Apr 2020, 16:51

Hi,

Example:

Code: Select all

#if WinActive("ahk_class Notepad++")
1::
MsgBox, hello
return

#if
The MessageBox will only appear if you press 1 AND if you are in Notepad++.
Replace Notepad++ by your actual application.

Right click on the running AHK script (Green icon in the taskbar), go to "Window Spy", click on your application and check the AHK class.

Cheers!
