I cant seem to send CTRL S to notepad on XP

5 posts in this topic




Any ideas, on 2k this works fine

ControlSend("graphreceipt.txt", "", "", "{CTRLDown}" & "S")

but XP is having none of it.

Please help

If I remember well in the notepad tutorial they close Notepad and simulate the click on yes (to save the changes)

you could try

WinMenuSelectItem("graphreceipt.txt","","&File","&Save")

That is the way forward, thanks very much!!

In the help file it is said that controlsend WILL work for any window except console, however on XP this doesn't appear to be the case, if the notepad window is not active it wont accept the command for Save.

Your way seems to work though

Also note that you need to use a lowercase "s" in your initial attempt rather than uppercase "S".
