Hello,

I am running into another odd issue. I'm running the latest portable version in an RDP session. I am reading a text file with some account numbers. Frequently when it is typing the account numbers into the search box it will cycle the Shift key. Not repeatably but frequently. It may run for an hour without doing it, it may run for 2 minutes.

I have account numbers like:

1. BALL0000
2. BALL0001
3. BACK0000

it will type them in like:
BALL0000
Ball)))!
BACK0000

I stop / start it and it picks back up and runs for a random amount of time without doing it again. I thought it might be a dodgy keyboard, so i put in a new one and no change.

Thank you for the tool.

The issue was how i was calling the Function. When using %A_LoopReadLine%, only Numeric values would pass, using A_LoopReadLine worked for both Numeric / Alphanumeric.

Thanks

I have an issue. Ive created a macro to loop through a text file with account numbers and then navigate some custom software to run a report and then export an XML file. It's been working fine with numeric account "numbers". I've gone through 30-40,000 reports and it works like a champ. Now i am running into some alphanumeric account numbers and it just stops.

Hello,
I have problem. I'm using Assign variable from excel. I want have whole cell saved as raw text.

Code: [Select all]GeSHi © Codebox Plus

var1[1] := RegExReplace(XL.Range("A1").Value, "\r\n$","")


And it is working most of the time.

But some of my variables (cells) have special symbols like ",! etc
Is there any way to make it work?

I can output to a Messagebox and it works fine. I can't type the AlphaNumeric into a Notepad. If i edit the text file source for all Numeric it works just fine. I don't see anywhere i could type a variable. I have tried exported CSV's from Excel and new text files from notepad it all operates the same, Numeric works fine, AlphaNumeric Pfffffttttttt.

I must be missing something, but can't fine it so far.

Many Thanks

I get like 40 dialog-boxes like the above, one by one, before the program appear.
It doesn't matter what the Keyboard Input is when starting Pulover's Macro Creator, it always switch the Keyboard Input to He (Hebrew), and showing the #1 Dialog-Box. But...
leaving it on Hebrew Keyboard Input, making the 40 dialog-boxes to appear, one by one (OK OK OK ...) as described. Program doesn't have those Hotkeys.
Switching the Keyboard Input to En(English) after the first dialog-box show up, making the program run after pressing OK. Program has those Hotkeys (except the first one ^c).

Tested on XP.

Hi.I have a script that I created using Pulover's macro creator. When I export as an exe, my script is working but after running it still works in the system tray. I want it to automatically shut down after I run my script without pressing any key. I made a few trials, but it did not close.

Is there a way to add random loops as in loop withing 50to80 times and a way to set the macro image detector to click a random pixel in the middle of the image so it does not click the same center all the time

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the program. Resetting the settings can also be a cure. Download and try the portable version if you want to.

You want a very specific help. You can solve this problem by watching the Youtube training videos. If anything you can not do, we can help. But it is not possible for us to realize all these requests remotely.

Maybe you prefer to learn AutoHotkey programming. :) It will definitely add a lot to you.

[quote="DontHurtMe"]Hello, I just got the Pulover's Macro Editor (and must say it's awesome!).

I don't know if this has been asked before (tried googling, no results), but there's a thing I'm trying to do... I know that you can add ControlSend (F4???) and ControlClick events manually, but how do I make it also be like that automatically while recording?
What I mean is that if I record a macro and export it, it's all "Click" and "Send" commands, but I want it to be ControlClick/ControlSend, so that the macro could run in the background while I do other things.

Hi Truthowl,

Welcome to AHK. :)

One of AutoHotkey's greatest strengths is it's ability to set up hotkeys. So, don't give up hope. :) A few pointers below.

  1. Pulover's Macro Creator is a way to automate things. But it not a good way to learn AHK, as you illustrate in explaining your predicament.
  2. You could probably use PMC to help you set up your script, i.e. to push the right buttons, etc. But I will let you know that this thread is not the greatest way to get help. This very forum is much more active than what you see in this PMC thread.
  3. You will want to learn at least the basics of AutoHotkey programming (and likely more as you realize its usefulness). So how do you learn? I first learned by setting up something to automate something boring, and messed around for many hours over many days, slowly learning concepts (AHK is the only programming I have ever done).

    I would recommend you to start here: https://autohotkey.com/docs/Tutorial.htm. Read that page and follow the directions to learn how to set up hotkeys, etc.

    Also, browse the docs there. And the forum here. Search keywords here to help you find your way around (this searches the docs, forum, etc): https://autohotkey.com/search/

So, you might feel lost, but I would recommend you read that tutorial, get something basic set up, etc. Then if you come up against things, can't figure something out, ask in the "Ask for Help" forum here: https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewforum.php?f=5 (click "New Topic") Although I would guard against starting a topic without doing your homework first and then showing that in your post. :) Another option would be the AHK Discord server here: https://discordapp.com/invite/0eAZhRs7dgWmObae There are experts there that can point you in the right direction.

Hope this helps!

@hasantr, thank you for the reply and your willingness to help. However, I cannot think of a way I can explain any better or more simply. I mean, I broke down how I use Irfanview and what it can do. I explained in detail, I thought anyway. Then I explained what I want to do using PMC. For the life of me I cannot think of a simpler way to break it down or explain more clearly. Maybe if you tell me what isn't clear enough?

Truthowl wrote:I use Windows 7

I use a program called Irfanview to view and sort pictures. It has a 'move file' and a 'copy file' function/window. For instance, if I'm viewing a picture I can press F7, which opens the 'move file' window. Then I can press a number between 1 and 9 plus 0 or b,c,d,e for a total of 14 different locations to move the file to. It allows me to quickly sort images.

I used to use Macro Magic with my numpad to quickly move files(images) making sorting even faster. But Macro Magic is old and not completely usable in Windows 7. It still works, but there are occasional problems(errors/bugs) and it's time I moved on to something else. AutoHotKey seems like the go to choice for modern macroing in windows. Only it's not very user friendly, or easy to use. While trying to figure out how to use it I found Pullovers Macro Creator which uses AHK. But for the life of me I can't seem to find a simple example that shows how to get PMC to wait to fire a macro on the press of a key of my choice.

Could someone please give me a simple step by step explanation on how to do this? Or maybe get Irfanview yourself and setup a simple PMC script to move files to, say, 2-3 different directories, using the numpad as the hotkeys(numpad1,numpad2,numpad3)? Then paste the code here. I can probably figure it out from that.

But everything I've seen so far requires you to press play, or use PMC's built in hotkeys to press play PMC's Play to play back a macro. Ideally I'd want my script to watch for multiple hotkeys. Irfanview can have up to 14 directories setup for moving a viewed image to. But if I can get an example, or explanation, of how to do it for 2-3 I figure I can easily expand it for my needs.

I've been trying to make this switch for the last 2+yrs. But every time I come I hit this wall of not being able to setup a script(macro) to fire on a hotkey.

Thank you for taking the time to read all of this.


Maybe I can help. If you explain more simply. But I do not know how to speak English. If you explain more simply.
