Character listing for AutoIt

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm new to writing scripts. So I'm wondering if there is anything that shows me how to make all characters and keyboard functions appear in text if I use the "Send" function.

For example, if I'm using AutoIt to write in several addresses on a database, how do I make the script Tab to the next field; and press Enter to drop to the next record?

They're the things I'm referring to, as well as Shift, Alt, Control; all those keys.

I think that shows how little experience I have of scripting!! :">

Cheers for the help

...as well as Shift, Alt, Control; all those keys...

be sure to pay attention to the example at the bottom of the help file document that Larry pointed you to. Also take note of the Win... functions.

Send("#r")
WinWaitActive("Run")
Send("notepad.exe{Enter}")
WinWaitActive("Untitled -")
Send("Today's time/date is {F5}")

Cheers guys. I'd looked on the Help file in the AutoIt folder, and also the Scite help file but couldn't find anything there. Think I'll be printing this out as an easy reference!

Once again, thanks
