Dog ate your help file?

Check out the "raw" flag parameter of Send() and ControlSend() in the help file.

What alternative do you prefer:

Escaped micro singularity from the LHC ate your help file?

Oprah on a binge ate your help file?

One of four thousand potholes in Blackburn, Lancashire ate your help file?

Yo' mamma ate your help file?

"Medical" marijuana make you forget where you put your help file?

Zero-day Trojan ate your help file?

This is a known issue with ControlSend() which I assume you use since Send() will likely work?

By the way.. when you would have posted enough information in your original request you wouldn't have seen the comment about the helpfile.

I see this way too often that a one liner question is posted without any effort to explain what was done or example posted and we are expected to give a more serious answer.

Really? You tried the raw flag, and it sent a 3 instead of a literal pound sign?

I call BS* on that one.

Send("#Hello",1) outputs #Hello for me.

Send("{LSHIFT down}3{LSHIFT up}Hello") Also outputs #Hello for me.

Um, I said that because he uses that quote frequently when someone asks for help on a topic that can be found in the helpfile.

And I'm sure I don't care what you find annoying, reguardless of your ranking.

Eh, if the helpfile joke floats your boat, then stick with the original.

Understood that this is your opinion and gave you my opinion which doesn't agree with yours.

So, Lets agree to disagree BUT there is nothing wrong with telling people to open up the helpfile when the question asked could have been easily found there.
