Creating Autohotkey dropdown menus to select a LaTeX itemize list

Today I struggled to create a dropdown that would work in all Windows editors and would allow me to select a certain element from a dropdown list and insert this into the current (TeXworks) document. After googling for hours I have come up with the following:

ddl

!y::
Gui, 1:Destroy
Gui, Add, Text,, Please define the environment:
Gui, Add, DDL, vList, itemize||enumerate|description
Gui, Add, Button, Default, Input
Gui, Show
return

ButtonInput:
Gui, Submit, NoHide
Gui, 1:Destroy
Send %List%
return

What does it do? It creates a dropdown with three items and (after the selection) inserts this value into the last document. I want to use this mechanism to further automate my TeXing process.
