Question about Special Characters in Send and ControlSend

2 posts in this topic

When using the Send and ControlSend functions is there any advantage or reason for using bracket characters like

{SHIFTDOWN}{SHIFTUP} or {SPACE} ?

For example, I know that

Send("A string")

Visually does the same thing as

Send("{SHIFTDOWN}A{SHIFTUP}{SPACE}string")

To me, it seems like the second way of doing it would be less efficient, but is that always the case? Are there special situations where you are forced to do it the second way?

Yes... There are numerous reasons for the bracketed commands... Just an example...

Send("{SPACE}")

Can be used to toggle a checkbox or click a button.
