I'm using the following code to Google selected text via hotkey:

Code:
function CopyAndGoogleSelection() {
        sp.Sleep(500)
        sp.SendModifiedVKeys([vk.LCONTROL], [vk.VK_C]);
        sp.Sleep(10)
        var txt = "www.google.com/search?q=" + encodeURIComponent(clip.GetText())
        sp.RunProgram("C:\\Program Files\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe", txt, "", "", false, false, false);
}


It works pretty much OK as long as I use Sleep() while sending Ctrl-C. If I remove the Sleeps Ctrl-C does not always copy text, which, as I suspect, happens because Ctrl-C is being sent while hotkey is still being pressed.

1. Is there a better/recommend way to copy currently selected text to clipboard reliably?

2. Is there a way to execute script on hotkey-UP instead of hotkey-DOWN?

Thanks.

Alt-Zero but I'm having the same problem with a mouse stroke. Adding delays seems like a workaround because I'm doing something wrong...

Hmm, my Copy gesture (just right+up line) works fine without any delays.

For the hotkey, you can try adding this at the top of your hotkey script - to force release of the Alt key:
Code:
StrokesPlus.Input.Keyboard.Keys.Release(vk.MENU);

//or sp.SendAltUp();

// May have to try these for left and right alt
//StrokesPlus.Input.Keyboard.Keys.Release(vk.LMENU);
//StrokesPlus.Input.Keyboard.Keys.Release(vk.RMENU);
