RE: [Release] @ScriptDev
the interface tester is included in the documentation (there's a link) -- but I don't think you're supposed to redistribute it...

Yes it does use the dll, but actually you can use a hidden plus window along with API calls and PlusWnd.RegisterMessageNotification (new function!) to create your own.
But that would mean that the window is always activate, no? So you can't activate any other windows? ^o)
No, it will be invisible so it can't be activated. Also, the hotkeys would be registered with WM_SETHOTKEY (or something like that :P) or the global RegisterHotKey function, and messages are sent to the window when the hotkeys are pressed.

See above and my first post in this thread.

RE: [Release] @ScriptDev
code:
var WM_USER = 0x0400;
var HK_GETKEY = (WM_USER+2);
var HK_SETKEY = (WM_USER+1);

function OnEvent_Initalize(bMessengerStart){
    WndSubclass = MsgPlus.CreateWnd('myWindow.xml', 'myWindow', 2 /* Used to not activate the window */);
    WndSubclass.RegisterMessageNotification(WM_HOTKEY); /* Register the hotkey message */
   
    var lRet = Interop.Call('user32', 'RegisterHotKey', WndSubclass, 0x001, hibyte(dHotKey), lobyte(dHotKey));
}

function OnWndSubclassEvent_MessageNotification(pPlusWnd, nMessage, wParam, lParam){
    switch(nMessage){
        case WM_HOTKEY:
            //Do whatever   
            break;
    }
}

function lobyte(w){ return w & 0xff; }
function hibyte(w){ return w >> 8; }

This is the basics, now when you are setting the hotkey to the HotkeyControl you use HK_SetKey and to get the key you use HK_GetKey along with SendMessageW.

O.P. RE: [Release] @ScriptDev
Thanks for all the help, Matty and deAd. I haven't had any experience using functions like Interop.Call or the Windows API, so I'm having trouble getting the hotkey code to work. :S Furthermore, I have exams starting this week, so I don't have any time to work on scripting... :(

If anyone does have time, I would have no problem with if they wanted to take over working on this script.

As for the preferences window, that is (again) something that I have no clue how to do.

Sorry for not being able to do much with this script (I've only been scripting for about 3 months). If you can do any of the suggestions, by all means, feel free to do it! I better get studying now... *-)

You've done a great job so far and its a very useful idea :)  If no-one else does then I will continue to develop this great script, adding more options, such as choosing to show/hide menu items and adding custom values.

that's not a bug, thats an unexpected feature
