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


$hWnd = WinWait("Untitled - Notepad2")
ControlSend($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


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

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

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