Can't parse Send command

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

This has got to be a simple error, but I can't find it. The following script errors out of the first Send command (Send ({DOWN} 8, flag=0). Says it cannot parse it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


 AutoIt Version: 3.3.6.1
 Author:         myName


 Script Function:
Template AutoIt script.


#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; copy pic in Chrome to Irfanview
; first, hover mouse over pic.
; copy pic to clipboard:
MouseClick ( "right" )
Send ( {DOWN} 8, flag=0  )
Send ( {Enter} )

; open irfanview:
Run ( "irfanview" )

; past pic:
WinWaitActive ( "irfanview" )
Send ( "^v" )

Have you opened the Helpfile Send() command page to see what the proper syntax is?

Have you tried -- Send("{Down 8}")?

Why are you trying to send as raw?

Send ("{DOWN 8}")

Change it to 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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Hi,

The first parameter of the Send function is a String, so the content must be surrounded by quotes or apostrophes.

Br, FireFox.
