Beginning Tips for Writing AutoHotkey Scripts (All File Formats)

Understanding How AutoHotkey Works and Designing Robust Applications

(EPUB format for iPad, iPhone, Android, and other devices and computers)

by Jack Dunning

"As a new AutoHotkey scriptwriter, this may be the most important book you can read."

I wrote Beginning Tips for Writing AutoHotkey Scripts not as a tutorial, but as a guide to understanding how AutoHotkey processes scripts and how you can better design applications. For many new AutoHotkey users, the actions AutoHotkey takes when loading a script appear enigmatic causing unpredictable results. While initially many features may not seem to add up, AutoHotkey reads a script in a way that makes total sense—once you comprehend it. You'll find understanding how AutoHotkey gets things done critical to writing and debugging robust scripts.

Rather than a plethora of programming tips, I offer a framework for viewing AutoHotkey scripts and the script writing process. If you understand everything in this book, then you'll find writing and debugging AutoHotkey scripts much easier. I include "Best Practices" which make your AutoHotkey life much easier—especially if you plan to later integrate them with other scripts while maintaining their standalone capability. While I include numerous snippets of code in the book, they offer either basic level examples or insight into how AutoHotkey works.

I emphasize the modularity of AutoHotkey throughout the book. That means for the most part you can place encapsulate modules almost anywhere in a script—with a few exceptions. This modularity makes AutoHotkey a very forgiving language, but the exceptions to the rule can be killer.
