I must be missing something. I have had this problem multiple times. Why does F6 key not send 6 times?  

Not working 

ControlSend("[CLASS:#32770]", "", "", ("{F6 6}"))

Working

ControlSend("[CLASS:#32770]", "", "", ("{F6}"))
      ControlSend("[CLASS:#32770]", "", "", ("{F6}"))
      ControlSend("[CLASS:#32770]", "", "", ("{F6}"))
      ControlSend("[CLASS:#32770]", "", "", ("{F6}"))
      ControlSend("[CLASS:#32770]", "", "", ("{F6}"))
      ControlSend("[CLASS:#32770]", "", "", ("{F6}"))

 

Life's simple. You make choices and you don't look back.

You haven't specified a Control you want to send the key to.

Should work, even without a control, I tested it on notepad.  Only reason I could think is you dont have focus on the right window.

BTW parenthesis are useless.  But it is not the problem :lol:

If you do not specify a Control, which Control gets the keys I send? The first, the active one ...?
Haven't found anything in the help file (but I'm old and blind ;) )

Maybe the repetitive keys are being sent so quickly that the application cannot recognize or process them.  The default value for the SendKeyDelay is 5 ms.  You could try adjusting the delay to something a little more human-like, maybe:

Opt('SendKeyDelay', 200)            ; Default = 5 milliseconds

[CLASS:#32770] seems to me like message box or an input box (could be a save file box by the use of F6).  So there should be only one at a time (normally).

Not a bad idea but I trust the keys sent by controlsend are all buffered.  But worth a try.

      My current script:
      ```
      $notepadWindow = RunWait('notepad.exe')
      ControlSend($notepadWindow, "Edit1", "", "abcde")
      WinSetState($notepadWindow, "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
      ```
      I can't seem to get these three lines to work. Its supposed to run a notepad window, then enter "abcde", followed by minimizing it. 
      Currently it just opens and nothing happens.
      What am I doing wrong here?

      I need to mute an ongoing call on Microsoft teams without activating the window. Teams allows us to mute using shortcut key Ctrl+Shift+m but only when the window is active.
      # Used set option as ongoing call can be with any person which leads to change in Title Name.
      AutoItSetOption ( "WinTitleMatchMode", 2 ) 
      # I am not clear with the control ID which will be good to use here and also the key combination of ^M       
      ControlSend ( "Microsoft Teams", "", "[CLASS:Intermediate D3D Window; INSTANCE:1]", "{ctrl down}")
       
      Can anyone help...!!!

      1. How do I make a multiple minimized windows at once believe I am holding down a key for like 5 seconds?
      I know I can send minimized windows a key press with ControlSend.
      What hat would be the way to simulate a 'humanly' held down key to a few minimized windows? 
       
      2. How come: if I compare a handle's hexa value and the actual handler, I get false
      For example: when the Notepad's handler value is 0x00000000000CFFFF, I always get the message box.
       
      if(NOT(0x00000000000C0664 == WinGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad"))) Then MsgBox(0,"swi","0x00000000000CFFFF" & @CRLF & "lmao" & @CRLF & WinGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad")) EndIf  
      Why does that happen? also I can't use hexadecimal value as a handler when I use the ControlSend function.

      Run("notepad.exe") GLOBAL $One = ('Line1' & _ 'Line2' & _ 'Line3' & _ 'Line4' & _ 'Line5') ClipPut($One) $Notepad = WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10) ControlSend("Untitled - Notepad", "", "", ("^v")) Instead of having this paste as Line1Line2Line3Line4Line5
      How can I make it paste it into notepad as (without double spacing.)
      Line1
      Line2
      Line3
      Line4
      Line5
