onHotKey {key-specifier} {[alt] | [ctrl] | [shift]}


The onHotKey command performs the following line of code (brackets do NOT work) when a certain key is pressed. The key-specifier can either be A-Z, 0-9, F1-F12 and ESC, BACK, TAB, ENTER, PAUSE, CAPSLOCK, SPACE, PGDN, PGUP, END, HOME, LEFT, RIGHT, UP, DOWN, PRNSCR, INSERT, DELETE, NUMLOCK or SCROLLLOCK.

Note: The code is only executed when the parser passes it, if you want a key-press to perform a certain action you have to make a loop. See the example.
Note: This function is NOT client or focus specific. Be careful what you type when running a script with onhotkey, chatting on one client, or in a different application may cause your character to do things in game you do not intend.
