controlsend to putty

Recommended Posts

tommez

hello,

i'm running a dos program over putty, and i am using autoit to collect data from the dos program, since the logs give a warped version of the dos program

for this i use "alt+space" to call the terminal menu, and then i let it send "o" to copy to clipboard and then i process it,

sadly the window needs to be active to let the windowmenu pop up effectively

i have noticed it just send space and o while the window is NOT active

global $handle

$handle=WinGetHandle("[CLASS:PuTTY]")

ControlSend($handle, "","","!{space}")
sleep(5)
ControlSend($handle, "","","o")
sleep(5)
$raw=ClipGet()

note: for all the other keycombinations controlsend DOES work, its just alt+space simultanously that fails to work when the putty window is NOT active
