CTRL key stays down despite a Send("{LCTRL up}")!

Recommended Posts

Akshay07

Hello all,

I am having trouble with the control of the CTRL key!!!

In my script, I have at some point

Send ( "{LCTRL down}" )

and it works great. All the subsequent actions shows that my left CRTL key is being held down, that is perfect.

The last line of my script is

Send ( "{LCTRL up}" )

and this does not work!!! I have to press manually the left CTRL key to get back my keyboad to normal, after the script has ended.

This is 100% reproducible. The script is an small one, no call to any function or anything like that. It is running the lines one by one and then exit.

Any idea what is wrong?

Does adding either of these to the end of the code help?

Send ( "^" )

or

Send ( "{CTRLUP}" )

No it doesn't, but I think I have a good idea of what is wrong (doesn't mean that I have a solution ;))

When I send this command, the focus is on an image embeded in an excel spreadsheet.

I tried to move the focus to another cell before sending the Send("{LCTRL up}") command, without success.

... why do you have a space between ctrl and up? i.e. ("{ctrlup}")

Well, the help says

"To hold a key down (generally only useful for games)

Send("{a down}") ;Holds the A key down

Send("{a up}") ;Releases the A key"

Am i misunderstanding it?

to send ctrl+a i would do:

send ("{ctrldown}")
send ("a")
send ("{ctrlup}")

ive never done this for a game though. are you using v3?

There was a conflict with another part of the script, and I also was not using the right stuff. It is now solved, thanks to your indication.

Thanks for your help and enjoy New Year's Eve!!!!
