    Default [HotKeyNet] Help with 7 line script please

    I just want to broadcast WheelForward and Wheelbackward to 1 World of Warcraft from anywhere outside the game like Desktop or Firefox with the following code:

    <Label w1 Local SendWinM "World of Warcraft">

    <Hotkey WheelForward, WheelBackward>
    <SendLabel w1>
    <Key %Trigger%>

    Actions on this PC:

    From this pc: <SendWinM "World of Warcraft"><Key WheelForward>
    <SendWinM "World of Warcraft"> completed: Window found. Target set to 0x39024C "World of Warcraft"
    <Key WheelForward> completed

    From this pc: <SendWinM "World of Warcraft"><Key WheelBackward>
    <SendWinM "World of Warcraft"> completed: Window found. Target set to 0x39024C "World of Warcraft"
    <Key WheelBackward> completed

    I have tried replacing WheelForward and Wheelbackward with other keys and it's still not broadcasting.

    With the exception of Global Hotkeys in Windows, then all input is directed to the current Active Window. If it doesn't have a handler for it, then that input can be passed up to a parent process, culminating in the Operating System, and if there are no handlers found, the input is chucked, usually with a default windows bong noise to indicate invalid input, although sometimes not if that input is swallowed (mouse input usually is NOT passed up to parents for obvious reasons - it makes no sense to do so)***.

    So, unless you can make HotKeyNet register a Global Windows hotkey, you'll be SOL from grabbing input from any random process, unless HotKeyNet happens to be the parent process, and it wont be a parent of the desktop.

    *** this is a simplification to something that is more easily understood.
