Virtual Key detection Help (AutoHotkey)

Post by cvben » Sun Sep 03, 2017 8:54 pm

What I am wondering is whether or not it is possible to get the keyboard plugin to detect AHK sent keys. When I perform a regular keystroke (ie on the physical keyboard) whatever key i press is obviously detected. However when I send a key or key combo through AHK Eventghost might see the shortcut, but not the virtual key press. So if for example I set my "A" key to perform "ctrl+alt+A" or any other combo, only the actual a key is detected.

I did find this old link, but the solution didn't work for me, in fact the plugin did not even read as valid. ... 1&start=15

Any help is much appreciated.

it depends on how auto hotkey sends the keystrokes. and if you can have AHK send the keystrokes directly to the EG hwnd (window) or if it is being sent directly to another window.

I have never messed around with AHK so I am not sure what mechanism it uses to send the keystrokes.
