send("^v") not working properly

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am writing a simple script that would copy lots of values from an excel sheet, and paste them into a system interface.

The script works just fine, however, I find it at random times sending the letter v instead of CTRL+v (to paste), which causes lots of problems, since my system interface would only accept numbers!

Could anyone help advising what could be the cause of this issue?

Many thanks,

arnasser,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

But please pay attention to where you post - the "Dev Chat" section where you started this thread is not for general support questions. I have moved it for you, but would ask you to be more careful in future. ;)

I would use ControlSend to send the data directly to the control.

Many thanks,

 

use:

ClipGet()
Or:

ControlSend("Window Title Or Handle", "", "", "^c")

Trong,

When you reply, please use the "Reply to this topic" button at the top of the thread or the "Reply to this topic" editor at the bottom rather than the "Quote" button you seem to use all the time. We know what we wrote and it just pads the thread unnecessarily. ;)
