ControlSend

Recommended Posts

watsonle

While trying to automate an application install when using the Controlsend command to enter data into a Class:Edit field the data is getting appended to the front of the existing data. I expected the data to overwrite the existing data.

When I look into the registry or Control Viewer after running the commands it also shows that the new data has been inserted to the left of the old data. If I run the script a second time then again the data is inserted to the left of the pre-existing data.

Does anyone know how to use ControlSend to overwrite the existing data?

The following command is working, just that it does not overwrite the pre-existing data. I guess I could edit the registry directly but would rather use this command.

ControlSend($titlePresenTense, "","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:2]", "172.254.2.250")

Thanks for any suggestions.

maybe you can get the focus first, select all with SHIFT + END and do the controlsend then
