Detecting double tap of keyboard triggers
#1
Function FF_KeyTriggerSingleDouble
Code:
Select All      Help
;\
function# iid FILTER&f

;This filter function can be used with keyboard triggers when the macro wants to know whether the trigger key was pressed one or two times.
;Assign this filter function to the macro (Properties / Keyboard / FF).
;The macro receives a single int argument that is 0 on single tap, 1 on double tap.
;Example macro:

;function isDoubleTrigger
;if isDoubleTrigger
;,out "double"
;else
;,out "single"

;The macro runs on double tap OR on single tap. It does not run on single tap if double tap detected.
;On single tap, the macro starts with some delay. Need it to detect double tap.
;In QM 2.3.3, does not work with modifier keys (Ctrt, Shift etc). It is a bug in this QM version. Works only with single key triggers.
;Does not work with mouse triggers.

double detectDoubleTapTriggerTime=0.4 ;;0.4 s. You can change this.
;Don't change code below, unless you understand how it works and want to change something.

__TRIGGERSD+ __g_tsd ;;global variable that stores previous trigger time etc
int timeoutMS=detectDoubleTapTriggerTime*1000 ;;convert to milliseconds

,,mac "FF_KeyTriggerSingleDouble" "" iid
,else ;;detected double-key trigger. Launch the macro now with isDoubleTrigger=1.
,,SetEvent __g_tsd.ev ;;end the waiting thread
,,__g_tsd.t=0 ;;prevent detecting double tap on triple tap
,,mac iid "" 1 ;;run macro with isDoubleTrigger=1
,ret -1 ;; don't run any macros but eat the key if need
else ;;this function is started by mac
,wait detectDoubleTapTriggerTime H __g_tsd.ev
,err ;;timeout
,,if(GetTickCount-InterlockedExchange(&__g_tsd.t 0)<timeoutMS/2) ret ;;thread synchronization, to prevent starting 'double-tap' and 'single-tap' macros simultaneously if second tap is at ambiguous time
,,mac iid ;;run macro with isDoubleTrigger=0
,;if not timeout, setevent was called to end this thread

Installing:
Create new function (menu File / New / New Function). Name it FF_KeyTriggerSingleDouble. Open Properties, Function properties. Check 'This function is a filter function'. OK.

Example macro. The trigger is F9 with filter function FF_KeyTriggerSingleDouble.

;Call this at the beginning of a key-triggered macro.
;Returns 0 on single tap, 1 on double tap.
;Example macro:

;if IsDoubleKeyTrigger

;The macro runs on double tap AND on single tap. If need OR, instead use filter function FF_KeyTriggerSingleDouble.
