pretty much what it says. i was asking in other topic, but i guess it went too much offtopic and i did not get reply.

i know that hotkey for button is like this
Code:
createHotkey(CEButton14Click, VK_INSERT)


but what if i want hotkey to set specific value and not press a button?
how could i do tht?

Not really sure what you're asking and why you think this is button specific code. (CEButton14Click is just a functionname, not a button)

anyhow:
Code:

createHotkey(functionThatSetsSpecificValue, VK_INSERT)


example:
Code:

function functionThatSetsSpecificValue(sender)
  writeInteger("[[bla.exe+1234]+12]+13", 123456)
end

createHotkey(functionThatSetsSpecificValue, VK_INSERT)

thanks. i got it now. im just having problems understanding lua. it was quite stupid question really, but im all new to lua.

I have another question. what would be the function to toggle freeze of the value instead of specific value?
like if i want to write a hotkey function that freezes/unfreezes the value at specific address/pointer ?

3 methods
1: just toggle the freeze property of a memoryrecord

2: create a timer that sets the value every time it executes and then enable/disable the timer to freeze/unfreeze

3: create a thread in an infinite loop that sets the value to the address. Use a variable to determine if it should set or not

3b: same as 3 but instead of a thread use an infinite loop and use processMessages to prevent freezing (Stupid method)

First two options work the best
3th one is a bit more complex and more cpu intensive

1: Just add a memoryrecord to your cheattable and assign it a toggle hotkey (rightclick, assign hotkey)
Alternatively, get the addresslist (getAddressList() ), then get the memoryrecord from the addresslist(e.g: addresslist_getMemoryRecordByDescription(addresslist, description), then call memoryrecord_freeze(memrec) to freeze and memoryrecord_unfreeze(memrec) to unfreeze

2:
Code:

function address1Freezer(timer)
  writeInteger(0x12345, 123)
end

function freezeAddress1()
  if (address1FreezeTimer==nil) then --first time init
    address1FreezeTimer=createTimer(nil,false)

    timer_setInterval(address1FreezeTimer,100) --set value every 100 milliseconds
    timer_onTimer(address1FreezeTimer, address1Freezer)
  end
  timer_setEnabled(address1FreezeTimer, true)
end

function unfreezeAddress1()
  if (address1FreezeTimer~=nil) then
    timer_setEnabled(address1FreezeTimer, false) --stop the freezer
  end
end

call freezeAddress1() to freeze and unfreezeAddress1() to unfreeze
