AutoHotkey Webinar- Recursion (Having a function call itself)

In this AutoHotkey webinar we cover Recursion (having a function call itself over and over)

Video Hour 1: High-level overview: Hour 1
Video Hour 2: Q&A: Hour 2

Script HighlightTetris from maestrith

Normally we have a more work-related type script but I thought this was a great example of other things that can be done with AutoHotkey.  You can get the script from maestrith’s github account. Pretty cool that it is only ~640 lines.

AutoHotkey Vegas Convention

We also mentioned some of us are considering putting together a convention in Las Vegas.  At a high level we’re thinking:

  • Network with peers and people of like mind
  • Attend in-person training to focused seminars
  • Hackathon (get into groups and have multiple solutions to a goal)

If you’re interested, please fill out this form and we’ll keep in touch as things develop

Recursion in AutoHotkey

Jean Lalonde, author of Quick Access Popup, did a great job leading us through creating recursive functions in AutoHotkey.

Over-simplifying things, while doing a recursive function remember you

  1. have a function which does something
  2. the function will check if it needs to go deeper (call itself)
  3. the function will check to see if it has finished (so it will back-out to top)
