ControlSend() delay

Recommended Posts

AutID

Hello,

Something weird is going with controlsend function on my computer. I don't know if it is normal but when I use controlsend on a window and the window is in action the control isn't send if the action doesn't finish.
Example, when I use controlsend on a window that is currently copying files or doing something else the control will be send as soon as the action finishes.
Any opinions???6

Need a lot more information about what the window is than that.


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.

What BrewManNH is trying to hint at is, without seeing your code you're asking us to first guess at what you're doing and then solve the problem for you. Why not post what you have, and help us help you ;)

Directly copied from the help files ;)

ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", "This is a line of text in the notepad window")
I said controlsend is not working on my computer, not a code I made...

Must be something to do with your computer then, because ControlSend works with Notepad.

I don't think so because it is the same thing with my laptop. It is not that the function is not working.

The problem is that if the window is in action, like copying or uploading or even moving objects, the controlsend will work as soon as these actions are finished.

Then it's probably because the window can't respond because it's doing something, unless you're trying to click on a cancel button or something, but it appears that you're not.

Yes i guess so, is there a solution to this? I have never seen controlsend C code so i have no idea why this would happen. But on the other side if the window won't respond while it is in action then i guess there is not much i can do.
