Can you make a UI like Launchy/Quicksilver in VP?

Unread post by hyphz » 9 May 2013 15:42

Is it possible to write a VP program which can run in the background, respond to a hotkey and then pop up a borderless window, as with a program launcher such as Launchy?

I know you can register a hotkey with gui_native but I'm not sure about the rest of the context for doing so. Launchy itself is open source and uses the same Win32 API but it seems pretty hard to understand and it also uses VC's message map declaration syntax. Does anyone know how to do this?
