How to paste into another programs input box?

6 posts in this topic

I need to be able to paste into an input box, but paste the text which is 36 characters, all at once like a right click and paste, which does work when done manually.

The reason this is necessary, is because the application that is polling this input box polls it so quickly it will fail if it polls and only part of the text is there. As a side note, the input box controls the contents of the window beneath it.

Thanks for reading

gte,

Sounds like an interesting app. :D How about using ClipPut and then Sending Ctrl-V?

gte,

Yes - but do I take from your tone that it does not work?

Yes, it wasn't working, I believe you cannot use control a/c/v with this craptastic program I'm trying to write to.

Here is what I ended up doing after experimenting, it's kind of sloppy with the generic sending of keys to the active window, any ideas on a better way to clean that up?

Func currentinbox()
    
    If WinExists("HP OpenView ServiceCenter - Incident Queue: Unassigned Incidents - HP OpenView ServiceCenter Client", "") Then
        Sleep(25)
        WinActivate("HP OpenView ServiceCenter - Incident Queue: Incidents (Problems) I Opened - HP OpenView ServiceCenter Client", "")
        Sleep(50)
        ControlClick("HP OpenView ServiceCenter", "", "[CLASSNN:Edit4]")
        Sleep(25)
        Send("{LSHIFT}+{F10}")
        Sleep(25)
        Send("s")
        Sleep(25)
        ClipPut("Open Incidents Assigned To My Branch")
        Sleep(25)
        ControlClick("HP OpenView ServiceCenter", "", "[CLASSNN:Edit4]", "right")
        Sleep(25)
        Send("p")
        Sleep(250)
        ConsoleWrite("Done" & @crlf)
    EndIf

EndFunc
