I'm still new to ahk and was wondering if I'm applying the below code correctly and/or there is a better way to do what I'm trying to achieve. Finally, is there a way to automatically figure out the width of the gui based on the NewGuiTitle?
How my script works: I have a huge script that contains all my shortcuts (one master file). I use basically this script below: To register a key command, listen for a 3 digit code, then run said script based on the 3 digit code.
I'd like to update the gui everytime the code is executed to just come up with a gui stating the title of the code executed. Leaving some properties default at times, but be able to adjust accordingly if need be. For example: change the color or width of the gui.
Here is my code for testing.
Code: Select all
;Gui Standard Settings called at beginning of script DefaultGuiColor := "666666" ; Can be any RGB color (it will be made transparent below). DefaultGuiTitle := "Whacky Shortcuts" ;replace this with the title I want. DefaultGuiSleepTime := 1500 Gui +LastFound +AlwaysOnTop -Caption +ToolWindow ; +ToolWindow avoids a taskbar button and an alt-tab menu item. Gui, Color, %DefaultGuiColor% Gui, Font, s32 ; Set a large font size (32-point). Gui,Add,Text,vCName cwhite,% DefaultGuiTitle Gui, Show, x0 y882 NoActivate ; NoActivate avoids deactivating the currently active window. Sleep, %DefaultGuiSleepTime% Gui, Hide F15:: ;Key Command to start the script and listen for the next 3 digit input input, command, L3 ; L3 to limit the input to 3 keys. if command = 001 ;Run Program XXX Run, "Program XXX" ;Update Gui NewGuiTitle := 610 ;Change with Command # NewGuiTitleDefaultGuiTitle := "XXX" ;Change Title GUI_Title_Width := 650 ;Change Title Width Gui, Show, W%GUI_Title_Width% Gui, Color, %DefaultGuiColor% ;Change Color of Gui GuiControl,,CName,% NewGuiTitleDefaultGuiTitle Sleep, %DefaultGuiSleepTime% Gui, Hide else if command = 002 ;Run Program YYY Run, "Program YYY" NewGuiTitle := 611 ;Change with Command # NewGuiTitleDefaultGuiTitle := "Run YYY" ;Change Title GUI_Title_Width := 600 ;Change Title Width Gui, Show, W%GUI_Title_Width% Gui, Color, Red ;Change Color of Gui GuiControl,,CName,% NewGuiTitleDefaultGuiTitle Sleep, %DefaultGuiSleepTime% Gui, Hide return
