HOT_DO key$ or
Once a hotkey is operational (see HOT_GO), you can call up the program or action set up on that hotkey by using the command HOT_DO, which enables a program to emulate the user pressing <ALT><key>.
The first variant expects you to supply the key which would normally be used together with <ALT> to call up the facility. You can however, also use the second variant to supply the name of an Executable Thing to be called up.
Take the following hotkey:
100 ERT HOT_WAKE ('f',Files) 110 HOT_GO
The following would all have the same effect:
- Pressing <ALT><f>
- HOT_DO ‘f’
- HOT_DO Files
