Send() does not work in window

4 posts in this topic

Hi forum,

I'm new here and have only been using AutoIt for a short while.

I have come across a window in a program where I can't seem to get the Send() command to work. I have tested using a Sleep(5000) at first in the script so I can select the window, and then I use Send("{TAB}"). This should tab the selection around on the controls, but nothing happens.

I use AutoIt v3 (3.3.6.1) and the compiled script runs on Windows Vista.

; Script Start - Add your code below here

WinActivate("Vælg aflåsningsfelter")
WinWaitActive("Vælg aflåsningsfelter")

Sleep(5000)
Send("{TAB}")

First, I would switch the Sleep() & the WinWaitActive() lines...it's better to have the WinWaitActive() as close to the send as possible, because in 5 seconds, the window may not be active.

What kind of window is this? Have you used AU3Info.exe to get the window Class? Is it a browser window, or an app (if so, is it a Win32, Java, Falsh, etc...)? Have you tried ControlSend()?
