Thread: ThinBasic Usage

    ThinBasic Usage

    I am looking for an alternative to AutoHotKey.

    Can ThinBasic be used similarly to AutoHotkey - i.e. hotkeys, hotstrings, general Windows automation?

    I looked for examples of how ThinBasic could be used to set up hotkeys and hotstrings, but didn't find any.

    Thank you.

    Ciao,

    if you install thinBasic you will get \thinBasic\SampleScripts\ directory with hundred of examples.

    I'm sorry I do not know AutoHotKey enough to say if thinBasic can do all what AutoHotKey does.
    I know it has commands to automate like sending keys to other windows or sending events.
    thinBasic has something but thinBasic is more "general" purpose language on that side.

    Anyway the best way to understand if thinBasic can help you is to look at examples, manual or asking for precise situations and we will see if thinBasic can help you.

    Ciao
