10 posts in this topic

my script contains the enter key. Once enter is activated the rest of the script doesn't work. What do I need to get it to work? what does the sleep command do?

Sleep(5000);five seconds

It would be easier to help you if you could post the code for what you are trying to do.

It's a mainframe script to save manual key strokes. The part after {enter} doesn't activate. The {sleep(3000)} didn't work.

SEND "1H"

SEND "A3150"

SEND "04120"

SEND "{ENTER}"

SEND "{SLEEP(3000)}"

SEND "DESCRIPTION GOES HERE"

I do not know what you are using but it is not AutoIt version 3. If version 3 is what you are meant to be using you need to study the help files. If you are using version 2 (I have never used it so I cant recognise it) you are in the wrong forum.
