Send {Ctrl} key when keyboard layout is not English

Recommended Posts

Hello all 

I'm trying to send keys to a program and it works well, but if I changed the keyboard layout to language other than English

it fails

ex:

Run("Notepad.exe")
$hWnd = WinWait("Untitled - Notepad2")
WinActivate($hWnd)
ControlSend($hWnd, "", "", "^s")

this works and opens the save as dialogue if I'm using English keyboard only not Arabic keyboard for example

I've tried using in send command

{CTRL} , {LCTRL} , {RCTRL}

but didn't work

so how I automatically change keyboard if it's not English and then send the keys

or what I should do

 

Thanks

Have you tried _WINAPI_Keybd_Event? Something like this (untested):

 #include <WinAPISys.au3>
 
_WinAPI_Keybd_Event ( 0x11, $KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY)
_WinAPI_Keybd_Event ( 0x11, $KEYEVENTF_KEYUP)

      Hi Team, 
      I am trying to send credentials via autoit on a web app launched via IE. I am passing the credentials into variables and trying to send them send("$username") but username field isn't getting populated. But the password field, I can send the credential, also when I try ieformsetvalue and set the username wrt username field fetched, it's getting send but my login button remains greyed out. 
      Can angularjs keydown function interfere in the autoit send process and not allow the credentials passed if it's not typed out? This is a general question to understand if javascript or angular js etc could detect if the credentials are automated, then it might not detect it as a keydown?

      Hi AutoIt Programmers!, I just looking for a way to change entered keys in English to Russian keys and reverse, i must clear for you to understand. For example:
       
      I write keys on keyboard and i forgot to change input language and then the result will be: Dkflbvbh (Thing we write in fact) ====> Владимир (Thing we want)
       
      And reverse: Владимир  ====> Dkflbvbh

      Is there any solution without writing constant for each words? for example dlls or WinAPIs.

      Hello,
      still learning and trying to understand AutoIT but having problem in filling my PDF file.
       
      So my code looks like similar to this:
      Global $1 = "text text 44444444" Global $2 = "texting2 texting2" Global $3 = "newtext3 next3" ShellExecute ("C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\myPDF.pdf") WinWaitActive("MyPDF.pdf - Adobe Acrobat Reader DC") Send ("{TAB}") ClipPut($1) Send ("^v") Send ("{TAB 3}") ClipPut($2) Send("^v") Send ("{TAB}") ClipPut($3) Send("^v") So its fill my PDF form, the first field looks good, the code add the text text 4444, then second should be $2 with texting2 texting2 but for some reason the code uses for second and third field after TAB only variable $3.
      So, I receive in $2 and $3 for some reason same newtext3 next3 in both, why its skipping the variable $2? Maybe there also much better solution for instant text? Because Send writes with delay by letters which I don't like.
      Thanks!

      My AutoIt script works fine, for the most part, however, if it goes idle for roughly 30 minutes, it will won't be able to send data to a 3rd party application window titled, "Case #". 
      The problem lies within the function "SendFusion", it's able to see the handle for the "WinActivate" and "WinWaitActivate" (I've also tried putting in 10 seconds in the WinWaitActivate as well, doesn't work). However, if we have been idle, it will always fail to send data afterward. On what I've tried so far:
      "Send" function with the data and a {ENTER} i.e. Send($CaseTxt & "{ENTER}"), this won't even hit the enter key  ControlSetText, tried passing the handle from WinActivate, using the title "Case #" that was copied directly from the Autoit Window Info, hard coding the title, Using CLASS:WindowsForms10... always returns a 0 ControlCommand (same as above) always returns a 0 ControlGetFocus always returns a 0 ControlFocus, always returns a 0 Creating a new and simple Au3 script that just sends data to "Case #", also fails NOTE: If I close the Au3 script and just scan the data directly into the "Case #" or even type it, it works fine with no issues. I'm confused as to why it would not work after a long idle period?
      Below are the essential parts of the script, I can provide the entire thing if needed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

      Console logs from the SciTLE
      Window (x86) Info matches the correct handle for the WinActivate and WinWaitActivate

      Window Control (x86) Info, I've tried the CLASS, the ID, also I just noticed that the "handle" in "Control" and "Window" appear to be different as well.

       
      So far the only work-around is to close down the 3rd party application and the AutoIt script, re-open them and it works all completely fine. But this is a pain for the end-user since it's all touch screen and it slows down their workflow, which they can be extremely sensitive about.
