how to send a long string to open dialog of a program using AutoIt v3

I need to send a long string of input names to open dialog of a program. I've tried send() function but it can't do this completely. I think because of OS context switch send() function sends some part of the string to another program.

following code is some part of my script:

$ftmp = ""
while 1
  $fname = FileReadLine($file)
  if @error = -1 then ExitLoop
  $ftmp = $ftmp & $fname & " "
WEnd 
send("^o")
WinActivate("Open Image")
sleep(100)
send($fadrs)
Sleep(200)
send("{ENTER}")
sleep(10)
send($ftmp)
Sleep(100)
send("{ENTER}")

Have you tried ControlSetText?

Hi, nimany, welcome to the forum. You could always read the entire file into an Array, and then parse it out. This should also be much faster the a bunch of FileReadLines. The example below should get you started down the road :)

#include <file.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

$file = @DesktopDir & "Test.txt"
Local $aArray

_FileReadToArray($file, $aArray)

For $element in $aArray
  ConsoleWrite($element & " " & $file)
Next
