How to use Hotkeys to send some text like keyboard shortcuts?

2 posts in this topic

With Hotkeys, the file is .ahk and the code inside is this:

 

^w::
   Send, This is some text
Return

 What is the equivalent in AutoIt

Additionally how to launch a program with a hotkey?

#n::
Run Notepad
return

Any VERY simple way to do this with AutoIt?

Thanks,

      I tried (using AutoIt) to automate a scenario where i  have to open IE with specific URL on my extranet(Xen Desktop or Citrix ) ,from there i need to download  file and then through WinSCP; I  have to move that file to another location that can be access from my Local system using VMWare.
      I did as far as the above step. Now i want to navigate from my extranet to my local desktop system. But i am not able to move  from there.Mouse click is also not working.Please find the below screenshot highlighted in YELLOW.

      How do I work with 2D arrays.  I've tried this but get errors.
      Local $aTest[4][4] = [[1,2,3,4],[5,6,7,8],[9,10,11,12],[13,14,15,16]]
      ;$aTest[0][] = [10,11,12]  ; Error at []
      Local $sTest = ""
      For $i = 0 To UBound($aTest)-1
        Local $aExtract = _ArrayExtract($aTest,$i,$i)
        $sTest = $sTest & MyTest($aExtract)
      Next
      Func MyTest($aTemp)
        _ArrayDisplay($aTemp)
        ; Error at    v $aTemp
        Return String($aTemp[0]) & " - " & String($aTemp[1]) & " - " & String($aTemp[2]) & @CRLF
      EndFunc

      Hi.
      If I use this code:
       
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $sServiceTAG = "9S1Y3J2" Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.dell.com/support/home/uk/en/ukbsdt1/product-support/servicetag/" & $sServiceTAG & "/warranty?ref=captchasuccess",Default,0,0) _IELoadWait($oIE) Local $oTds = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "td") For $oTd In $oTds If StringStripWS($oTd.innertext, 7) = "NBD ProSupport" Then $sShipdate = StringStripWS($oTd.NextElementSibling.InnerText, 7) ExitLoop EndIf Next _IEQuit($oIE) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Warranty", $sShipdate) My messagebox is empty, but if I use the link first:
      http://www.dell.com/support/home/uk/en/ukbsdt1/product-support/servicetag/9S1Y3J2/warranty?ref=captchasuccess
      and then use my code I get results.
      Can someone help so I don't need to use the link first.
