Reading All Short Keys in File

13 Jul 2018, 08:15

I was wondering if there was some sort of way to return all the shortcuts from an AHK macro file?

I have an AHK file which is full of shortcuts and I am always adding to it.

They are either in the format of Alt + Something or plain text replacement (usually along the lines of ASTERISK + email = replaced with "")

I was trying to think of ways to do this and thought of 2 options:

1: (a long shot) A way to read all the shortcut keys (maybe built in) and return them in msgbox, or in a variable for use elsewhere
2: (more likely) Apply a particular comment text (maybe duplicate semi colons) above each shortcut that can be looped through and read

;;Alt + P = Send printer path
send, \\printerpathexample\example\example1printer

Are either of these options possible? Maybe by using FILEREADLINE and some sort of loop?

You can double-click the AutoHotkey tray icon, and then after the window opens press Ctrl + H or just click menu View > Hotkeys and their methods.
