Extra mouse buttons combo
« on: December 04, 2008, 12:01:35 AM »
Hi

I tried to post on Ahk forums but I could not get any real help. I am hoping that Dc coders can crack this for bonus donation credits :)

What I am trying to do is,

-Xbutton1+Xbutton2=c key (sends c key)

-Xbutton1=Ctrl (when not in combo mode)

-Xbutton2=Shift  (when not in combo mode)



Here is the code I am using at the moment. But the problem is that I loose the functionality of Xbutton1. Everything works except Xbutton1 as individual button.




~XButton1 & ~XButton2::Send c

XButton2::Send {Shift Down}
XButton2 Up::Send {Shift Up}
XButton1::Send {Ctrl Down}
XButton1 Up::Send {Ctrl Up}

I think you canĀ“t press 2 buttons at the same Time.

Hi Skrommel,

thanks for the script. It looks like it has the idea. It successfully simulates and distinguish those buttons.  But before getting into hacking I should mention that XButton1 and xButton2 will be "ctrl" and "shift" modifiers. And during the usage I would keep them pressed to simulate a pressed down shift or ctrl. One common problem with simulating shift or ctrl via scripts is that they stay stuck even after releasing the hosting key.  Do you think that your script can successfully simulate shift keys? Otherwise I might need to add shift pressed and release stuff which might take a lot more time than I anticipate since I am not a programmer at all.
