Is it possible to set a hotkey from a plugin? I know it's possible to use the createHotkey function from lua, but I'm wondering if it's possible to do this without having to call lua. But is there something similar in the C plugin API? I searched the header file but it did not show a function that seemed to do this. This is the lua code I wish to convert to a native function

Code:

local hotkey = createHotkey(somecallback,VK_SHIFT,VK_L)


I hope there's a way to do this, it would help out a lot. Smile

no, the native hotkey handler by ce isn't explicitly exported.
You can use native windows hotkeys by creating an invisible window and then handle wm_hotkey messages
or else rely on lua

Thanks for your reply. I'll use the invisible window approach to create the hotkeys. Thank you for the help.
