Hi Venix,

Once you sent me a link and I found exactly what I was looking for, then it got taken away:

Can't find the list in the help files again, can you post the original answer again please?

Thanks,

Bruno

Look in the help file under the Send command, it's all in there.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I see only 4 of them in that help file, I thought there were more like for {down}, {backspace} ect...

'!'

This tells AutoIt to send an ALT keystroke, therefore Send("This is text!a") would send the keys "This is text" and then press "ALT+a".

'+'

This tells AutoIt to send a SHIFT keystroke, therefore Send("Hell+o") would send the text "HellO". Send("!+a") would send "ALT+SHIFT+a".

'^'

This tells AutoIt to send a CONTROL keystroke, therefore Send("^!a") would send "CTRL+ALT+a".

'#'

The hash now sends a Windows keystroke; therefore, Send("#r") would send Win+r which launches the Run dialog box.

Thanks,

Did you try scrolling further down the page? There is a key substitute list for every key in the table below.

My apologies if I edited my original comment, I do not remember posting a link to it however if I did this might be what you are looking for however all the information on this is in the help file.

Edit: I often edit my comments to remove any spelling mistakes I have noticed and maybe I removed the link by mistake.
