Default AHK-script: copy action list to clipboard

There are already two actions for getting action list ("SWS/S&M: Dump action list"), but no action to get all custom action names/ids/strings. This script gets also custom actions (to clipboard).

Example: get all custom actions from the main-section: type "custom" to the filter box->right click on the ahk-window and select "Get Action list"->select "Copy to clipboard"->paste to text editor.

Ahk-window:


excel:


Get AutoHotkey from: http://www.autohotkey.com/

Here is the code. Save as e.g "GetActionList.ahk".
Code:
#SingleInstance force

Gui, Add, ListView, r20 w700 h600, Cmd ID|Description||Custom ID

LV_ModifyCol(1, 50)
LV_ModifyCol(2, 300)

Hey,
I've been looking at anything I can find bringing ahk to work with Reaper.
I found http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=30789
And was interested.
I built genmce/keymce from ahk. I have been away from the coding for a bit...
Feel it is time to look at it again.
I am on the iPad right now will try out your script later today.
What other ahk and reaper or midi scripts have you created?

Hi,
"Keyboard – Mackie Control Emulation" seems very interesting. I'm going to test it later. Here is a script which shows note and its position at mouse cursor. Works at least with undocked MIDI window. (This is a modified example from the AHK docs. I'm not really an experienced programmer.)

Code:

Gui, Color, %CustomColor%
Gui, Font, s16
Gui, Add, Text, vMyText cBlue, XXXXXXX`n ; XX serve to auto-size the window.

Menu, Tray, NoStandard ; remove standard Menu items
Menu, Tray, Add, Load note names, MenuHandler  ; Creates a new menu item.
Menu, Tray, Add, Quit, ExitHandler

; Make all pixels of this color transparent
WinSet, TransColor, %CustomColor%
SetTimer, UpdateOSD, 20
Gosub, UpdateOSD  ; Make the first update immediate rather than waiting for the timer.

	Gui, Show, x%MouseX% y%MouseY% NoActivate  ; NoActivate avoids deactivating the currently active window.
}

Hey I like that mouse position note/indicator.
Works docked too! This is very useful!
I like how it picks up velocity/CC value on the lane too, nice!
Will it pick up custom drum labels? I don't have any yet, just curious.

I might like a crisper font, that one on my screen is kind of smudgy.I forgot how to change the font and style... I'll have to look up how to do that.
No matter what I try it doesn't seem to get better.

I'm not really a programmer either, i just duplicated a few things and had tons of help on what I was obsessed with.

So how to use that list of SKAN's in my first reply?

I tried to get text from MIDIPianoWindow with ControlGetText, but it didn't work. I think it is possible if note names are first loaded to a variable.

(part of GMdrums.txt)
35 B0 Acoustic Bass Drum
36 C1 Bass Drum 1
37 C#1 Side Stick
38 D1 Acoustic Snare
39 D#1 Hand Clap
40 E 1Electric Snare
41 F1 Low Floor Tom
42 F#1 Closed Hi-Hat
43 G1 High Floor Tom

(I don't know how to do it exactly but something like this might work):

1. get notenumber from control (Edit4 shows note name and number)
2. do some string splitting
3. if notenumber is e.g. 35 -> text to show = B0 Acoustic Bass Drum

You can use Sendmessage command like this (I don't know how SKAN got that list):

Code:
Gui, +AlwaysOnTop +ToolWindow
Gui, Add, Text, x10 y10 vTrackText, Track
Gui, Add, Button, vbutton1 gPrevTrack, Prev
Gui, Add, Button, vbutton2 gNextTrack, Next
Gui, Add, Text, w100 h50 vInfotext cBlue
Gui, Add, Text, x100 y10, Open all track MIDI
Gui, Add, Button, x100 y29 vbutton3 gOpenInEditor, Open
Gui, Show, w200

SetTimer, UpdateInfo, 200
return

PrevTrack:
SendMessage,0x0111,40286,0,,ahk_class REAPERwnd ; Go to previous track
SendMessage,0x0111,40421,0,,ahk_class REAPERwnd ; Select all items in track
Return

NextTrack:
SendMessage,0x0111,40285,0,,ahk_class REAPERwnd ; Go to next track
SendMessage,0x0111,40421,0,,ahk_class REAPERwnd ; Select all items in track
Return

OpenInEditor:
SendMessage,0x0111,40134,0,,ahk_class REAPERwnd ; Open all track MIDI (last focused/clear first)
return

UpdateInfo:
ControlGetText, info, Static1, ahk_class REAPERwnd
GuiControl,, Infotext, %info%
return

GuiClose:
ExitApp
If you want to execute action in the main window use:
SendMessage,0x0111,40286,0,,ahk_class REAPERwnd ; ActionID 40286 is Go to previous track

and in MIDI window:
SendMessage,0x0111,40719,0,,ahk_class REAPERmidieditorwnd ; ActionID 40719 is Cursor: advance 1/4

I have an idea and it is from yours.
I don't think a string split will be needed...
just set varibles based on note number.
Since you are already picking that up - should be able to just

could be loaded based on a menu setting
if GM drums = 0
{
36 = 36
; other variables that are drum note numbers
}
else
{
36 = snare
}
I need a day or two to get back up to speed with ahk, it's been over a year since I looked at it. My syntax is all messed up, but it will come back quickly.

This tool is already very useful - what you've done.
I will used every time I need midi piano roll.

---
I get how the messages are being sent from SKAN -
what I don't get is how to incorporate his list into a menu that is usable from a script.
I pm'd him over at ahk forum.
I will post here if I get something from him.

No answer yet.
back to the note display.
Where should the list of note number to drum name conversion come from?
1. Where someone has imported a drum set, like {GM standard note # to drum name/type} or also be user definable .ini file that would include gm drum mapping as well as a couple of user definable sections in a .ini file.
I say this because some vst's use non-standard drum mapping and some drum triggers also use non-standard mapping.
- If you happen to be triggering from some midi drum hardware.

Does it even matter...

For my own personal uses - I will need either a note translator to convert notes from my Roland handsonic (because I will tap them in on the pads) to GM - then edit as necessary...(mouse) or have separate drum map in Reaper.
Not sure which of those is easier/better. I also have another drum trigger devices so the need for multiple maps is apparent for my use.

Not that anyone else would need these features. Start with the GM drum map, as you suggest and get that txt on the display. Where would the text come from? an .ini file or some list in .ahk or can reaper itself transmit that info to the mouse position for ahk to pick up?

Which leads me to where are you getting the note names var?
Is there a custom message coming across your script from the mouse location?

Code:
ControlGetText, Note, Edit4,, midiview

ControlGetText, Position, Edit5,, midiview
Where did you learn what the value of Edit4 and Edit5 where?

I only had a few mins to look at your script today while working.
I will look again.

I think it easiest (for now) to open the same drum map file in Reaper and in ahk (with FileSelectFile or something). There are a lot of drum map files in Reaper stash. There seems to be empty/commenting lines in keymap files, so they have to be parsed out.

I'm using AutoItWindowInfo to get the control names. Note number comes from Edit4 (if we use string split before digits).



Now I have to go to work (and put winter tyres on, it's almost winter here).

Hey -
I don't have AutoIt installed on this machine, window spy does not seem to pick up that same information.
Also - now the docked piano roll does not show correctly anymore... not sure what changed, I did not edit anything... weird.

I was looking at the gm drum map (from stash) here's a snip.

35 B0 Acoustic Bass Drum
36 C1 Bass Drum 1
37 C#1 Side Stick
38 D1 Acoustic Snare
39 D#1 Hand Clap
40 E 1Electric Snare

A couple of questions come to mind...
1. Does edit4 get the text "Acoustic Bass Drum" for note 35?
I know the text is displayed on the key of the piano, but is that info sent to the display for edit4 in reaper (even though that display is too small for that much text...
I'm not articulating this very well...
2. Is there a standard place to put a drum map in reaper, since others will have to load it, both into reaper and into this script?
2b. Are there custom actions based on drum or piano notes for midi? I'll look from your generated list and the list of actions... doesn't look like it.

3. Where I am heading is will this be useful to someone else?
4. If they have to browse for the file to load and edit variable definitions... I want it to be useful and easy to manage for others. If not, I'll just hack to customize for myself and get something working that only you or I will understand. Yes others will as well but most will not.

Here is a test and proof of concept.

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.

1. No. That's why it is necessary to load a map into script also, but it may be possible to load it into reaper from the script. (there's an action "Load note names from file")
2. I'm not sure but there's a KeyMap folder in Reaper folder.
2b. There are some but SWS actions are in the MAIN section.
3.4. Yeah, it should be easy to manage (with GUI)

This is what I thought:
1. load a map into script (load it into reaper with button in GUI, I'll test if it is possible)
2. parse every line and put text into var (NoteNumber35 = B0 Acoustic Bass Drum, NoteNumber36 = C1 Bass Drum 1 etc.)
3. get note number from Edit4 (with string split)
4. pass note number as parameter into function which then shows corresponding text (parameter = 35 then text to show is B0 Acoustic Bass Drum

Sorry, I don't know if that make any sense. It's very hard to explain in english.

Hey,
I did find if I use f7,f8 or f9 to change my screenset, i find that the mouse tip shows properly even with docked toolbar.

Great. I guess it's time for me to buy a new computer (7-8 years old), even those if -statements adds lag. May be also because of this bigger GUI: Gui, Add, Text, vMyText cBlue, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX`n.

You are experiencing increased lag?
You can increase the settimer I bumped all the way to 200 and it was still usable, however - I like 50 or 60.

There is probably a much better way than if, then.
Just an easy solution.
I see what you mean tho - my screen refresh is slowing down. Can we detect the mouse position only after we know that the correct window is active?

I increased the settimer to 50ms, it helped a lot. Reaper window or midi window has to be active to get data from Edit4 (Edit4 refreshes only then). "MouseGetPos, MouseX, MouseY,, MouseControl, 1" and "IfInString, MouseControl, MIDIWindow" checks if control name under the mouse cursor contains "midiview". "MouseX" and "MouseY" contains screen coordinates all the time.

Ok here is another more usable.
I put in a few things.
1. Detect reaper - so program won't do anything if reaper is not detected, except look for reaper every 8 seconds.
2. If reaper is an active window then proceed with updateosd
3. Add tray menu icon to set for GM drums, on this program.
I want to add your load gm map if tray menu set to gmdrums (call action to load the map as you showed before.

Code:
/* 
	This script - written by SPK77 shows notes on Mouse tip as well as position of mouse cursor on midi piano roll.
	Flipotto added GM drum name display (only works with GM drum map from reaper stash) 
	Words after ; are comments.
*/

; =============== Nothing to edit here move along ; =============== 
#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
#SingleInstance, Force

Menu, tray, add, GMDrums            ; Set General Midi drums show names add to tray icon

Gui, Font, s16 , ;courier new bold
Gui, Add, Text, vMyText cBlue, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX`n ; XX serve to auto-size the window.
; Make all pixels of this color transparent

; =============== test to see if REAPER is open every 5 seconds

Post #3 edited (green parts). Now it loads a map (user have to select it) into reaper but there's an odd delay before filename gets into "load note name" -dialog.

I added your code, not sure why yet, but I can't get the notepostion gui button load map into reaper to work.
I see the listing of GM drums and I press the button but it does not do anything. I'm added a few msgbox's to see where things aren't working.
Well I put a msgbox at the end of loadbutton
Code:
LoadButton:
WinGet, MIDIWinId, id, ahk_class REAPERmidieditorwnd	; get MIDIwindowID
SendMessage, 0x0111, 40409, 0,, ahk_id %MIDIWinId% ; Load note names from file
;~ Sleep, 500
IfWinExist, Load MIDI note names from file:
WinActivate, Load MIDI note names from file:
;~ WinWaitActive, Load MIDI note names from file:
ControlSetText, Edit1, %SelectedFile%, Load MIDI note names from file:	; %SelectedFile% contains full path and filename. Edit1 is filename box in "Load MIDI note names from file" -dialog.
MsgBox reaper button
return
The msgbox loads but the piano roll does not change from no text to GM drums... hmmm...

It takes few seconds for me after the Load map button is pressed. Oh, and midiwindow has to be undocked. I forgot to add that it doesn't press Open -button automatically.

It's much faster if "SendMessage, 0x0111, 40409, 0,, ahk_id %MIDIWinId%" is replaced with "PostMessage, 0x0111, 40409, 0,, ahk_id %MIDIWinId%".
Code:
LoadButton:
WinGet, MIDIWinId, id, ahk_class REAPERmidieditorwnd	; get MIDIwindowID
WinActivate, ahk_id %MIDIWinId%
PostMessage, 0x0111, 40409, 0,, ahk_id %MIDIWinId% ; Load note names from file
Sleep, 1000 ; delay before ControlSetText (more reliable)
ControlSetText, Edit1, %SelectedFile%, Load MIDI note names from file:	; %SelectedFile% contains full path and filename. Edit1 is filename box in "Load MIDI note names from file" -dialog.
return

Hey is there an undock midi editor command?
And a dock the midi editor command?
That way I can call the load from file and put it back docked?

Maybe it's not worth it anyway...
I see your doing python also - good for you.

Couldn't find any MIDI-window related but there is "Dock/undock currently focused window". Maybe it's possible to use ControlFocus http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/comma...ntrolFocus.htm to set MIDI-window (or control) focused and then use Dock/undock -action.
