I want to have a single thread for this so please share your useful and interesting AHK scripts here. Provide a short description of what the script does put the script in the post using the code

Was way too fast without any delay but it's perfect with sleep, 100. Thanks again! You guys will both get a shout out in the next release for C64 Dreams  

In case you want to start Xpadder.exe with an emulator's games and then exit Xpadder when exiting the game, you can add this ahk code to your emulator's AutoHotkey Script tab: Run, C:\Xpadder\Xpad

Back again.

Okay, so I'm trying to work out how to do some dynamic hotkeys based on the currently active window; i.e. if CDisplayEx is active, I want them to do one thing, and if it's not I want them to do nothing/behave as they would normally.

These aren't the specific keys (I'm actually going to be using Joy buttons) but I just want to get it working first before moving on to that.

$z::
if WinActive, Cdisplayex
    {
        Send, -
    }
    Else
    {
        Send, z
    }
Return

$x::
if WinActive, Cdisplayex
    {
        Send, =
    }
    Else
    {
        Send, x
    }
Return

The "Else" portion of these seem to be working because they're sending z and x, but the problem is that they're still sending just z and x even when Cdisplayex is active.

Is "Cdisplayex" the Window title or the exe file_name?  I think the "If WinActive" is looking for a window title and it's not directly finding it.  Title (I think) need to be exact.  So "Spider Man 01-01 - Cdisplayex" will not be found the same way.   Anyway, so it then jumps the the Else statement.  Try:

$z::
if WinActive("ahk_class Cdisplayex")
{
   Send, -
}
Else
{
   Send, z
}
Return

Or tidy things up a little..... (same result)

#if WinActive("ahk_class Cdisplayex")
:*:z::-
Return

The second you press "z", it'll instead send "-" ONLY if Cdisplayex is the active window.  Otherwise a Z by any other name is still a Z. ;)

Okay, so, the next question is, where exactly would I put that in the existing code? I tried putting it above the Function1 section but that didn't work (breaks the rest of it).

It doesn't need to be in a loop.  The # tells it to make the hotkey always available/checked.  Also get rid of the last "Return" at the same time you get rid of the loop.

I've never done an extensive script like this with hotkeys in it.  So I don't know if it's ok to put it after the other [awesome looking] loop that checks when 1 or the other programs close.  To be safe, I'd say put before.  But ya, take it out of its' loop.

;Loop
;{
#if WinActive("ahk_exe Cdisplayex.exe")
:*:z::-
Return

#if WinActive("ahk_exe Cdisplayex.exe")
:*:x::=
Return
;}

;Return

Can probably even throw them in at the top right after #WinActivateForce.

If you put this at the top of the script and you have "return" then whatever is after the return wont get executed? Long time since I played with ahk.

 

Cant you just:

$z::
if WinActive("ahk_exe Cdisplayex.exe") //might need to check the quotes are correct
{
   Send, -
   msgbox "im sending -" //check to see if button press is working
}
Else
{
   Send, z
   msgbox "im sending z"
}
Return

At the bottom of script?

If I put it at the top, the blocker, the watchdog loop, etc. don't start correctly, and the hotkey to swap to CDisplayEx doesn't work.

If I put it above Function1 the hotkey to swap to CDisplayEx doesn't work correctly.

If I put it in Function 1 above the swap hotkey, the hotkey to swap to CDisplayEx doesn't work correctly.

If I put it at the bottom the hotkey to swap to CDisplayEx doesn't work correctly.

I'm not having any luck putting it anywhere. It's essentially blocking everything that comes after it and stopping the other hotkeys from functioning no matter where it's located.

If I put it in a completely separate script running alongside it's fine. I feel like there should be a way to make it work in the same script though.

I simplified it even further to:

#if WinActive("ahk_exe Cdisplayex.exe")
:*:z::-
:*:x::=
Return

Could try putting loop in a timer and use getkeystate:

#SingleInstance Force
#WinActivateForce

Gui, Show, , Blocker

SetTitleMatchMode, 2
WinWait, Cdisplayex
WinSet, Transparent, 0, ahk_exe CDisplayEx.exe
WinWait, RetroArch VICE
WinActivate, RetroArch VICE
Sleep, 200
Gui, -AlwaysOnTop
Gui, Hide
Hotkey, ~NumpadSub & NumpadEnter, Function1

SetTimer, MyFunction, 1000 ;put previous loop in timer, bottom of script

Loop
{   
    KeyIsDown := GetKeyState("z")
   
    if (KeyIsDown == 0) ;key not down
    {
       	
    }
	else ;key is down
	{
		if WinActive("ahk_exe Cdisplayex.exe") 
		{
			Send, -
			msgbox "im sending -"
		}
		else
		{
			Send, z
			msgbox "im sending z"
		}
		
		KeyWait z
	}   
} 

ProcessExist(Name){
