When I exit notepad, I want to check the keystate of the left ctrl key. if down, run a program. if not down then just exit...

Re: Sleep command optimization help

hi-
thanks for your help. to your second point, yes.
on your first point: the ~= "D" is directory. i'm assuming i can just use "N" if it's a file ?

Re: A_ variables

not sure if this has been requeted or not, if it has my apologies. any chance of having some user specified variables, A_Userxx, etc. Something that we could specify and then call from any script? this would give us the opportunity to read variable contents in different scripts without needing to us...

Re: Outlook email SaveAs

easier than I thought:
olItem.SaveAs(Storage_Dir "\" RegExReplace(olItem.Subject, "^(?:RE|FW): ") ".msg", 3)

removes the offending characters and any other I choose to add into the RE|FW etc string.

think i'm good to go. thanks for your help.

Re: Outlook email SaveAs

I use this in autohotkey: PSubject := RegExReplace(Subject,"^(?:RE|FW): ") PSubject := StrReplace(PSubject, "+", "_") any way of doing a similar thing here? also, what is the "try" an...

Re: Problem with GUI Control

my bad, this seems to work as I need. one thing though: when the n/a field is changed to the %Link% contents, the length of the field doesn't automatically change with the length of the variable. How can I make the length change as the length of the variable data changes? I can always put in a width...
