lost my favorite script - need help with simple script

30 Apr 2020, 06:06

I recently lost my favorite script which was a simple command to switch between default sound device using a small utility called nircmd.
https www.nirsoft.net /utils/nircmd.html Broken Link for safety

The sent commands were toggled by pressing WIN+A:

nircmd setdefaultsounddevice "BEDROOM" 1
nircmd setdefaultsounddevice "LIVING ROOM" 1

There was also another part of the script that would output a small notification in the bottom right corner that would show which option was toggled (it was just simple text).

Any help getting me this going again would be sooooo awesome.

Thanks

OMG THIS IS IT! I cant believe you found this. I am having an error though when trying to compile for my own needs. There was a thrid option in this example you posted but I only want to switch between 2 sources: BEDROOM & LIVING ROOM. Here is my attempt to do this:

Code: Select all

#a::
	toggle += 1 ; This increments toggle state (so values after execution of this line will be one of 0,1,2)
	if (toggle = 1)
	{
		Run nircmd setdefaultsounddevice "BEDROOM"
		soundToggleBox("BEDROOM")
	}
	else if (toggle = 2)
	{
		Run nircmd setdefaultsounddevice "LIVING_ROOM"
		soundToggleBox("LIVING_ROOM")
		toggle :=  -1 ; set to -1 so on next run it will end up being 0
	}
Return
I am getting the error:
Call to non existent funtion.
Specifically: soundToggleBox("BEDROOM")

------>006: soundToggleBox("BEDROOM")

never mind I forgot about thesecond part of the script !Here it is in its entirety:

Code: Select all

#a::
	toggle += 1 ; This increments toggle state (so values after execution of this line will be one of 0,1,2)
	if (toggle = 1)
	{
		Run nircmd setdefaultsounddevice "BEDROOM"
		soundToggleBox("BEDROOM")
	}
	else if (toggle = 2)
	{
		Run nircmd setdefaultsounddevice "LIVING_ROOM"
		soundToggleBox("LIVING_ROOM")
		toggle :=  -1 ; set to -1 so on next run it will end up being 0
	}
Return

; Display sound toggle GUI
soundToggleBox(Device)
{
	IfWinExist, soundToggleWin
	{
		Gui, destroy
	}
	
	Gui, +ToolWindow -Caption +0x400000 +alwaysontop
	Gui, Add, text, x35 y8, Default sound: %Device%
	SysGet, screenx, 0
	SysGet, screeny, 1
	xpos:=screenx-275
	ypos:=screeny-100
	Gui, Show, NoActivate x%xpos% y%ypos% h30 w200, soundToggleWin
	
	SetTimer,soundToggleClose, 2000
}
soundToggleClose:
