How to make Alt Gr into a hot key and also as a modifier?

16 Aug 2018, 18:40

Could you guys help me with this please

I want Alt Gr to work as a hotkey like this:
LControl & RAlt::MsgBox You pressed AltGr itself.

But I also want Alt Gr plus another hotkey to work like this:
<^>!m::MsgBox You pressed AltGr+m.

Each of these syntaxes works fine on their own but if I type both of them into my auto hotkey file and press run. Only the "LControl & RAlt::MsgBox You pressed AltGr itself." works
why?
Is there any way to work around this?

I appreciate all help!

Hallo,
try:

Code: Select all

~<^RAlt::
KeyWait, RAlt
IF A_ThisHotkey = ~<^RAlt
	MsgBox You pressed AltGr itself.
Return
<^>!m::MsgBox You pressed AltGr+m.

Code: Select all

LControl & RAlt:: AltGr := true

LControl & RAlt Up::
	If (A_PriorKey = "RAlt")
		MsgBox You pressed AltGr itself
	AltGr := false
return

#If (AltGr)

	m:: MsgBox You pressed AltGr+m.
	m & n:: MsgBox You pressed AltGr+m+n.

#If
