Send action always runs, even when IF statement equates to false??

18 Apr 2016, 17:59

Hi All,

Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong with this code?
No matter what I ask the if statement to match it always types E when I press `, even if it equates to false.

I need the send to only work on a specific domain. If my domain is XYZ then the below code will still send E when I type `. In fact, even if I pause the script it still replaces ` with E!!? The variable MyDomain returns the correct domain name in the msgbox.

Thanks!

EnvGet, MyDomain, USERDOMAIN
MsgBox, % MyDomain
if (MyDomain = "ABC")
{
#IfWinExists ahk_class Notepad
`::Send, E
}

I've also tried

EnvGet, MyDomain, USERDOMAIN
MsgBox, % MyDomain
if MyDomain = "ABC"
{
If WinExist("ahk_class Notepad")
{
`::Send, E
Return
}
Return
}

To define a context sensitive hotkey you can use #If outside the hotkey definition:

Code: Select all

EnvGet, MyDomain, USERDOMAIN
MsgBox, % MyDomain
#If (MyDomain = "ABC") ; context sensitive

`::
    If WinActive("ahk_class Notepad")
       Send, E
Return
OR:

Code: Select all

EnvGet, MyDomain, USERDOMAIN
MsgBox, % MyDomain
#If WinActive("ahk_class Notepad") ; context sensitive

`::
    If (MyDomain = "ABC")
        Send, E
Return

Thanks for clarifying the #if for me, I was trying to figure that out.
I'll give it a try again now.

Perfect, thank you! I also now see that I can use IF etc after ::, that's very useful!
Of note, when I pause the script the ` key is still sending E? I have to exit the script for it to stop applying, is that expected behavior?

Code: Select all

EnvGet, MyDomain, USERDOMAIN
#if MyDomain = "abc"
{
   `::
	  If WinExist("ahk_class Notepad")
		 Send, E
   Return
}

Yes it is. You either have to suspend the script or make the following change. Note I moved the Notepad check to be conditional, this causes the ` key to retain its native function if notepad is closed opposed to blocking it.

Code: Select all

EnvGet, MyDomain, USERDOMAIN
#if MyDomain = "abc" && WinExist("ahk_class Notepad") && !A_IsPaused
`::Send, E
