Multiple Letter Hotkeys
Input, userKey, I L2
If userKey = bs
So the user hits the hotkey then can type bs to run the macro.
I can add different strings to each hotkey to free up a lot of different options.
y & u:: msgbox, hi there returnPressing 'y' and 'u' simultaneously shows the msgbox, but now my 'y' key does nothing when pressed singly. Am I running into what Laszlo wrote below? I have an IBM keyboard plugged into a Dell port replicator.
...but there are physical limitations: some keyboards (e.g. Dell) cannot detect certain multiple key presses.
The problem is that your y key is now a prefix key with different behavior. You can define actions for it, but it won't aouto-repeat, Shift, CapsLock behaves differently with it, so it is better not to use this kind of combinations with normal keyboard keys.
...becomes a prefix key. Prefix keys can also be assigned their own actions ..., but their action will only be triggered when the key is released and only if you did not press any other keys while the key was begin held down
~y & u:: msgbox, hi there returnFrom the Helpfile:
~ This hotkey's native function shouldn't be suppressed (hidden from the system) when the hotkey fires.
This feature is not supported on Windows 95/98/ME.
