Ontosy,

You can send Ctrl-X/C/V to an Edit control, but not Ctrl-A - this is a Windows limitation, not of AutoIt's making. If you want to select all the text, you need a little trick like this: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIEdit.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("This is some text ", 10, 10 ,480, 300)
$hEdit_Handle = GUICtrlGetHandle(-1)

; Create dummy for accelerator key to activate
$hSelAll = GUICtrlCreateDummy()

GUISetState()

; Set accelerators for Ctrl+a
Dim $AccelKeys[1][2]=[["^a", $hSelAll]]
GUISetAccelerators($AccelKeys)

Sleep(2000)

Send("^c")

Sleep(2000)

Send("{END}")
Send ("^v")

Sleep(2000)

;Send ("^a") ; This does not work
_SelAll() ; But this does

Send ("^x")

Sleep(2000)

Send("^v")

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hSelAll ; And this lets you use Ctrl-A in the edit
            _SelAll()
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Func _SelAll()
    Switch _WinAPI_GetFocus()
        Case $hEdit_Handle
            _GUICtrlEdit_SetSel($hEdit_Handle, 0, -1)
            Return
    EndSwitch
EndFunc   ;==>_SelAll

If you try Send("^a") it will not work.

All clear? :)
