I've been working with AHK for a while and I always get fascinated by its (almost) limitless possibilities.
In many cases I create bigger scripts which contain single scripts.
The single scripts get activated by keystrokes (e.g. Ctrl+Shift+F1 till Ctrl+Shift+F12).
Inside of my Logitech "Gaming" Software, I assign the keystrokes/key combinations to my G keys.
Then I just compile the AHK script and let it run in background.
When my target app is active and the profile has been loaded (Notepad++, Excel, some game etc.),
pressing the specific G key always works perfectly.
Now I'm thinking that in some case it might be useful to create single AHK scripts
without any keystroke/keycombination.
Then I don't assign any key to the G key, but simply the AHK/exe file (as a link).
The result is the same, but I wonder if method 2 has any disadvantages like cpu performance etc.
(Because a new process gets created).
Method 1 as code would be:
line = 1
while ErrorLevel != 1
FileReadLine, Clipboard, %A_ScriptDir%\Conversion(001).txt, %line%
WinGetTitle, title, A ; Get current window title
if title contains .txt ; if it contains .txt
title := StrReplace(title, " - Editor") ; replace " - Editor" by nothing
Clipboard = WinGetTitle%title% ; Clipboard = WinGetTitle%title% (window title)
Method 2 would be the same but without hotkeys and 2 separate ahk files (and with
By method 2 I save all the keys, but somehow I tend to believe method 1 is the more correct way...
A concrete example would be :
Big script with 12 scripts (each with unique hotkey) vs 12 single scripts without any hotkey.
What do you think?
And how do you work?
