I think it would be nice if there were either a new feature to add customized key-codes to react to certain things like popups, aliases, or other commands.

Or just make the on KEYDOWN and on KEYUP remotes able to handle more than just custom windows.

Maybe also adding an "on KEYPRESS", "on MOUSE", "on CLICK", "on DOUBLECLICK", and "on HOVER" remotes. Those would be really nice for some nice graphically pleasing user interfaces.

Currently, you can program certain hotkeys.

Code:
alias f7 { say hi! }
alias cF6 { commands }
alias sF5 { commands }


As for doubleclicks in picture windows...

Code:
menu @whatever {
  sclick:/echo single click at $mouse.x $mouse.y
  dclick:/echo double click at $mouse.x $mouse.y
}

Hotkeys are pretty useless in mIRC. I only know that because I made a DLL to have them. Alt + <a-z> is pretty much owned by mIRC. ctrl + [lots of a-z] are global window hotkeys (ctrl+c = copy, etc)

That leaves you with hardly any, except shift. Of course if you use shift you then cannot capitalize them without faking some keybd_event()'s and that's just annoying ....

I can see why only fkeys are allowed to be use by us because there's not much else to be used.
