Re: Why define variables in other languages

In basically every other language I've seen I would have to set var1 as either some sort of text or integer or floating point or whatever have you. you must not have seen very many programming languages then :) What's the advantage/disadvantages of that? http://lmgtfy.com/?q=type+system dickwad

Why define variables in other languages

Why is it that the bulk of other languages require you to define the type of data going into a variable instead of just letting it take whatever you put in? In AHK I can simply say var1 := "Text" or var1 := 2 . In basically every other language I've seen I would have to set var1 as either ...

Re: AHK: pushing 1, send ALT-W then 1, ends in a loop

$1:: This is usually only necessary if the script uses the Send command to send the keys that comprise the hotkey itself, which might otherwise cause it to trigger itself. The $ prefix forces the keyboard hook to be used to implement this hotkey, which as a side-effect prevents the Send command from...

Changing Google Voice Settings via COM

Anybody have any experience working with Google Voice? I want to change the forwarding between 1 of 4 different ones programatically, but I'm having a devil of a time even getting started. I've used COM to manipulate pages before, but I can't get a handle on this one. I'm assuming the page is probab...

Re: Searching multiple words

Ok, that shouldn't be too difficult to tweak. The help documentation should have everything you need for doing that. At this point it's really just a matter of replicating the keystrokes that you would manually perform to replicate the same task. The hard part I did for you (the array, changing the ...

Re: Searching multiple words

Untested, but should do the trick, or at least close to it with a little tweaking. #EscapeChar * wordsToSearch := ["been", "had", "become", "the", "went", "gendy"] `:: increment += 1 if (increment > wordsToSearch.MaxIndex()) increment := 1 ...

You can't use the same hotkey twice, either combine the actions or make it two separate hotkeys.

COM is what you need. You can do anything and everything to Excel without actually displaying Excel. It's tricky but with some experimentation you'll get it. Here's some links to get you started. https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=ahk+com+excel h...

Bingo, but be forewarned that sending input to a hidden window can be a bit unreliable. Be prepared to be frustrated.

Re: Hide autohotkey processes from view?

Try winhide and controlsend, though in all honesty if you're working with excel your probably best of learning how to use COM. Google Mickers AHK COM Excel, you should find some helpful documentation to get started with.

Re: Hide autohotkey processes from view?

What kind of windows? Is it generating Command Lines or activating other windows or is it making it's own GUI windows? In general, what you're asking is very very doable, but without any details the best I can tell you is that it's doable.

Re: Could you explain what is actually going on

For SetTimer a negative value means Go once, but first wait however many milliseconds the value is . So in this case, go to the AutoLoop label in 1 millisecond and just do it once (effictevly the same as GoSub ). I'll be honest, I'm not sure why they went that route instead of just doing GoSub, Auto...

Re: Could you explain what is actually going on

With the first code snippet: The Hotkey starts the subroutine ToggleSW . The first line in it changes the value of _EnableSW to the opposite of what is stored. In this case it's a Boolean True/False, which is stored as 0/1 in AHK. The use of the ! after the := signifies Not . So if the value is init...

Re: Pulover's Macro Creator Not working - Mouse won't move or click

Most of the Click commands are just to move the mouse, which I'm assuming is a quirk of PMC. I've never actually used it, but I imagine it logs literally everything you do.

Re: Pulover's Macro Creator Not working - Mouse won't move or click

Shot in the dark it's the WinActivate [edited]. Unless the title of the window is actually "[edited]" it's simply not being activated.

Also that is a TON of clicks and sleeps. A rather staggering amount frankly, what are you automating by chance?
