IDEA: notice user when Ctrl-C (or whatever) is pressed
« on: September 28, 2005, 05:23:49 AM »
Hi,

is there a way to play a sample when I hit Ctrl-C to copy something, so that I know I really copied it? Might be useful for other hotkeys too where you don't immediately see that you really pressed it. Would be even better if the script could determine the volume of that sample, so one could set it like one likes it.

After thinking a bit about that I wonder if it might be even better to use a gfx solution instead - maybe display a 0.5 inch x 0.5 inch big object in one of the screen corners (definable in which)?

Or flash the mouse cursor?

Or....? Any ideas/comments? :)

 :) Try AutoHotkey from www.autohotkey.com.

A simpel script like this will work:

;Notify.ahk
~^c::
ToolTip,Ctrl-C pressed.
Sleep,2000
ToolTip
Return

~!Tab::
ToolTip,
Return


You'll find more scripts at Skrommel Software.

Awesome, really awesome! :)

Is it possible that the ToolTip will auto-hide if I press Alt-TAB before the timer reached stopped? That way I could use a bigger value for the timer while keeping it limited to the window where I clicked it.

Thanks!!
