6.1 Data Types

<< Previous | Table Of Contents | Next >>

Hot Keyboard scripting supports two types of data - string and number. String is a sequence of ANSI characters and number is a 64-bit IEEE floating point number (i.e. C++ "double" type). Scripting engine converts data from one type to another automatically when needed.

Strings must be enclosed in single or double quotes, e.g.:

'Hello' 
or
"Hello" 

and may contain the following special symbols:

	\n		(line feed)
	\r		(carriage return)
	\t		(tabulation)
	\\		(backslash itself)

Numbers can be represented in the following format:

	DDD		decimal integer number
	DDD.DDD	decimal fractional number
	.DDD	--//--
	0xHHH	hexadecimal integer number
        (-DDD)          negative decimal

Important Note - negative numbers must be enclosed in brackets:


(-112)

iif ( (StrFind($msg, "abc") = (-1) ), ( GoTo "label1" ), (GoTo "label2") )

Examples

Paste Text macro to fill out web page login and password. In "Play keys" mode, tabulation and enter characters are simulated as key presses

MyLoginName${{'\t'}}MyPassword${{'\n'}}
Remember to password protect such macros
