I am not an expert in these things but I am always keen in exploring new territories.
As I wrote before, I am experimenting with AutoHotkey
. I managed to assign hotkeys to toolbar buttons using this scripting language.
Ctrl+F - toggle Fixed Units
Ctrl+S - toggle Spotted Units
Ctrl+U - toggle Used Movement Points
Ctrl+D - toggle Disrupted or Broken Units
Ctrl+L - toggle Low Ammo or Fuel
Ctrl+T - highlight Travel Mode
This script is very simple and, strictly technically speaking, assigns mouse-click action on toolbar buttons to key combinations. This method is far from perfect with some downfalls when toolbar is not positioned in a top row but falls in a second row. This is often the case on lower resolution monitors or if you resize the GUI window in such manner manually.
You can also notice I used Ctrl+key
combination. This is because almost all single key hotkeys are already used for other purposes and I didn’t want to override existing hotkey functionality.
Keep in mind I created this, first and foremost, for my own convenience. I will post this script, together with source code, so if anybody feels like trying it and found it useful, I’ll be happy.
