Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Insert Today’s Date Stamp in any Document
Posted by: denilama - 03-26-2018, 08:59 AM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

When you’re working with a memo, letter, report or any other document where you need to write out the date, instead of typing it out on your keyboard, it’s quicker and easier to use a hotkey. With MS Word and Outlook, it is possible to insert the date using the “Alt+Shift+D” hotkey. With Excel, a different hotkey “Ctrl+;” is used. Some applications, however, do not have any hotkeys to insert the date. The following scripts will insert the current date stamp into any application (with a single hotkey):

Dec 30, 2000
SendInput, %A_MMM% %A_DD%, %A_YYYY%
December 30, 2000

  Shortkeeper on a USB key!
Posted by: Philippe27 - 03-22-2018, 09:38 AM - Forum: ShortKeeper suggestions and feedback - No Replies

I was using ShortKeeper working from home but I found out you can upload your ShortKeeper folder on a USB key and take it to your workplace! You have nothing to install. Simply plug the USB device, then doubleclick on the ShortKeeper application in your Shortkeeper folder on your USB device...and voilà! You are ready to go. The best thing about it : it does not install anything on your computer, therefore it keeps it clean and won't be blocked by your company software security control (at least at my workplace).

Thumbs Up How to create a keyboard shortcut with ShortKeeper using AutoHotkey code
Posted by: denilama - 03-21-2018, 07:18 PM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - Replies (2)

This short tutorial will show you how to create a keyboard shortcut using AutoHotkey code in ShortKeeper.

Note: ShortKeeper includes AutoHotkey (as a shortcut processor). At the end of this tutorial, you could close ShortKeeper, and AutoHotkey will continue processing your keyboard shortcut(s) in the background. ShortKeeper is only needed to add/modify/delete shortcuts, manually start/stop AutoHotkey, and set certain operating options.


[Image: ShortKeeperTutorialAhk.png]

  1. In the left column, select the command "Run AutoHotkey code".
    Note: The order of commands in the list can change. The Up/Top/Dn/Bot buttons at the bottom of the list let you move up your most useful command(s).

  2. In the center column, click the button New.
    Note: If you don’t click New you will be editing the selected shortcut in the right-hand column instead of creating a new one.

  3. In the DESC field (center column), type something to identify your shortcut.

  4. In the PARAM field, paste a script or any AHK code.

  5. In the HOTKEY section, define a hotkey to trigger your shortcut.

  6. Finally, click Save.

That’s it! Pressing the defined hotkey will trigger your shortcut (if AutoHotkey is running).

If AutoHotkey is not running, just start it with the Start/Stop AutoHotkey button. It is possible to set an option (in the "Option" tab) to start AutoHotkey automatically at Windows start-up. There is also an option to start AutoHotkey automatically when ShortKeeper starts. A small hand icon in the system tray, usually at the bottom right of the screen, will indicate that AutoHotkey is active.

Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Find out the Hex Color Code anywhere on Screen
Posted by: denilama - 03-20-2018, 10:06 AM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

If you are a web developer or a graphic designer, you probably have color related tasks. There are plenty of fancy GUI-tools to help you with that. But if you just need to quickly find out the hexadecimal color code (RGB) at any point on your screen, this small script will do the job. Simply move the mouse pointer to the desired location, and use the keyboard shortcut to run the script.

Need help creating a keyboard shortcut with ShortKeeper using the following AutoHotkey code? This 5-minute tutorial will help!

MouseGetPos, MouseX, MouseY
PixelGetColor, color, %MouseX%, %MouseY%, Slow|RGB
Clipboard := color
MsgBox % "The color at the current cursor position is " color "."

The color will be shown in a dialog box and placed in the clipboard.

At the end of line #2, RGB can be replaced with BGR to swap the red and blue components.

The color will be shown in hexadecimal format (e.g., 0xFFFFFF). If you would like to remove the “0x” prefix, add the following instruction between lines #1 and #2:
StringTrimLeft, color, color, 2

Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Get Geolocation Data of a Selected IP address
Posted by: denilama - 03-16-2018, 08:29 AM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

This following script will help you quickly bring up geolocation data for a selected IP address. The script works by copying selected content to the clipboard, which, if it looks like an IPv4 address (e.g. 255.255.255.255), will start “iplocation.net” with your default browser. The IP address is automatically entered as a query. This will give you the geolocation data for the IP address.

Need help creating a keyboard shortcut with ShortKeeper using the following AutoHotkey code? This 5-minute tutorial will help!

ClipSaved := ClipboardAll
Clipboard =
SendInput, ^c
ClipWait, 2
if ErrorLevel
{
  MsgBox % "Failed attempt to copy text to clipboard."
}
else
{
  IpAddress := Trim(Clipboard)
  FoundPos := RegExMatch(IPAddress, "^(\d{1,3})\.(\d{1,3})\.(\d{1,3})\.(\d{1,3})$")
  if (FoundPos)
    Run % "https://www.iplocation.net/?query=" . IpAddress
  else
    MsgBox % "Invalid IPv4 address selected!"
}
Clipboard := ClipSaved

The script will restore the previous clipboard content.

Spaces and tabs at the beginning and end of the selection will be omitted from the selection.

An error message will be displayed (line #7) if nothing is selected. The IP address verification occurs at line #12.

If you would like to launch the geolocation website (iplocation.net) with a non-default web browser, replace line #14 with one of the following:

For Chrome
Run % "chrome.exe " . "https://www.iplocation.net/?query=" . IpAddress

For Edge
Run % "microsoft-edge:https://www.iplocation.net/?query=" . IpAddress

For Firefox
Run % "firefox.exe " . "https://www.iplocation.net/?query=" . IpAddress

For Internet Explorer
Run % "iexplore.exe " . "https://www.iplocation.net/?query=" . IpAddress

Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Open Several Web Pages at Once
Posted by: denilama - 03-15-2018, 04:07 PM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

ShortKeeper already has a basic “Launch website” command to let you quickly create a shortcut to launch a web page. But what if you want a shortcut that will launch several web pages at once? ShortKeeper has you covered with its “Run AutoHotkey code” command.

The following three scripts (one for IE, one for Chrome, and one for Firefox) launch four websites (cedeq.com, autohotkey.com, google.com, and bing.com). The scripts are designed to launch all four websites in different tabs inside the same browser window.

Need help creating a keyboard shortcut with ShortKeeper using the following AutoHotkey code? This 5-minute tutorial will help!

Internet Explorer (IE):

Pwb :=  ComObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")
Pwb.Visible:=True
Pwb.Navigate("https://www.cedeq.com")
Pwb.Navigate("https://www.autohotkey.com", 2048)
Pwb.Navigate("https://www.google.com", 2048)
Pwb.Navigate("https://www.bing.com", 2048)

Google Chrome:
run % "chrome.exe " . "https://www.cedeq.com"
winwait ahk_class Chrome_WidgetWin_1
run % "chrome.exe " . "https://www.autohotkey.com"
run % "chrome.exe " . "https://www.google.com"
run % "chrome.exe " . "https://www.bing.com"

Mozilla Firefox:
run % "firefox.exe " . "https://www.cedeq.com"
winwait ahk_class MozillaWindowClass
run % "firefox.exe " . "https://www.autohotkey.com"
run % "firefox.exe " . "https://www.google.com"
run % "firefox.exe " . "https://www.bing.com"

Simple enough!!

  ShortKeeper Review & Tutorial from Laxman Singh
Posted by: denilama - 03-11-2018, 01:39 PM - Forum: ShortKeeper suggestions and feedback - No Replies

Nice ShortKeeper review & tutorial:

...There are many application launcher software and software to create shortcuts for frequently used text also available but such software work for a specific purpose only. This software, on the other hand, is multipurpose and therefore good to use. You can also modify and delete any hotkey when you no longer want to use that particular hotkey for a specific command...

...The interface of this free keyboard shortcut manager software is neatly divided into three sections...

...This software is pretty helpful when you perform some common tasks regularly and need some simpler way to perform those tasks. Instead of manually typing a frequently used text, open a file, application, save selected text in a text file, you can set custom hotkeys for all such tasks using this free keyboard shortcut manager. It will make things easier...

Thanks Laxman!

Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Get a Word Count of Selected Text
Posted by: denilama - 03-07-2018, 04:20 PM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

Have you ever had to copy and paste text to Microsoft Word just to get a word count? If so, this AutoHotkey script may interest you. It counts how many words are in a selected portion of text (from a website, document, or other), pretty much like the Word Count function in MS Word.

The script counts the number of non-whitespace character groups. The count result is supposed to be the same as MS Word (2010) in English and French languages. So this script will count "It’s AutoHotkey-based" and "Bonjour !" as two words.

Need help creating a keyboard shortcut with ShortKeeper using the following AutoHotkey code? This 5-minute tutorial will help!

ClipSaved := ClipboardAll
Clipboard =
SendInput, ^c
ClipWait, 2
if ErrorLevel
{
  MsgBox % "Failed attempt to read selected text."
}
else
{
  NewClipboard := Trim(Clipboard)
  Count := 0
  Position := 1
  while, Position := RegExMatch(NewClipboard, "\S+", Out, Position+Strlen(Out))
    Count++
  MsgBox % "Words :" . Count
}
;Clipboard := ClipSaved

The script replaces the clipboard content with the selected text. The last line of code (#18) can be uncommented (delete ';' at the beginning of the line) to restore the clipboard with its previous content.

This script is optimized to be used with ShortKeeper. As such, there is no "Return" at the end and variable(s) don’t need to be cleared. ShortKeeper will do this automatically. Just copy/paste the code in the PARAM field in ShortKeeper, set your hotkey, save, and you’re ready to use your new keyboard shortcut.

  Open document vs Quick notepad with ShortKeeper
Posted by: Philippe27 - 03-06-2018, 10:48 AM - Forum: ShortKeeper suggestions and feedback - Replies (1)

If you have a todo list document like me that you write in every now and then, you have to know the difference between opening it with the function ''Open document'' and the ''Quick notepad'' one in ShorKeeper. 

When I use my todo list with notepad, I always minimize it instead of closing it because I know it is not the last time I will use it during the day. With ShorKeeper, if I use the "Open document" function to open my todo list, it will work. The problem comes when I minimize it. By doing so, when I will trigger the macro that opens my todo list, it will re-open it instead of bringing back the one I minimized. 

I bet you know what's next! If you minimize your notepad todo list, and you trigger the macro that opens it through the "Quick notepad" function, it will bring back the one you already opened. It is a cleaner way to use it because you always have the latest saved version of your document instead of having 3, 4 or 5 opened todo list on your desktop not knowing which one is the last saved.
