Sending a Double Quote with Send()

6 posts in this topic

Sorry if this is too basic and if I missed this in the Help file, but how do I use Send() to Send a double quote?

Send("{"}") doesn't work

Send(""") doesn't work

etc.

How do I escape the double-quote?

Many thanks!

In the help file:

If you want a string to actually

contain a double-quote use it twice like:

"here is a ""double-quote"" - ok?"

TurboDragon,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Either double the doublequote ("""") or enclose it in single quotes ('"'). ;)

Send("""")

Send('"')

or chr(34)

If you wish to send the ASCII value A four times, then try
    $x = Chr(65)
    Send("{" & $x & " 4}")

helpfile ....

Edit: should be the best solution, since he wants to send only one doublequote

OK, figured this one out . . . Just use Send(' " ')  (enclose the double quote in single quotes)
