Net Send: multiple lines

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

When you open a command prompt and type

net send username firstline ^T secondline

You get the message in two seperate lines. The '^T' is basically CTRL+T and this inserts a line break.

However when I try inserting this CTRL+T using the SEND keys or even Send("{CTRLDOWN}t{CTRLUP}", it does not seem to work. Somehow instead of inserting a line break, I get the number 1 instead. Has anyone come accross this problem? Thanks in adv. Example is as below:

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "net send " & guictrlread($sendto) & " " & GUICtrlRead($msg1) & Send("{CTRLDOWN}t{CTRLUP}") & GUICtrlRead($msg2))

Try using chr(20) instead of the "^T" and it works (had to google in some newsgroups for this one)

$sendto = "user"
$msg1 = "Part1"
$msg2 = "Part2"
$test = "net send " & $sendto & " " & $msg1 & Chr(20) & $msg2
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $test)

hope this helps,


edit: strange idea to put a send command into a "run" sequence, by the way... :)

Thank you very much for you help. Its worked on my XP. By any chance do you know if this runs on NT and 2000 as well? I can test it when I go to work, but now I am on a weeks holiday....

gafrost, thanks for the link. I did see it earlier along with few other posts on NetSend. It mentions that you need the latest beta or the stdout function wont work. Unfortunately I cannot find the beta version, so I left it at that. But thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
