Winword and ControlSend

Recommended Posts


I would like to send some characters to an open Winword with ControlSend but when i use AU3Info.exe and i place my mouse on the blank Winword page there is no Control ID :whistle:

How can i do to send characters to word and other applications with no Control ID ?

It will be cool if someone can write an example.

Thank you.

This was done for word yesterday, you might see if you can mod it:


Thanks but it's not exactly what i want, i have to send characters to other apps too like lotus notes.

We here have a keyboard problem, we can't send the euro symbol so i wrote this little script:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global $Paused
HotKeySet("{F2}", "SendEuro")
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")

; == GUI generated with Koda ==);
$Form2 = GUICreate("Keys", 307, 73, 302, 218)
While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    Case Else


Func SendEuro()
    Send("€", 1)

Func Terminate()
    Exit 0

When i press F2 it send the euro symbols but on some terminals it does work and i would like to send the char with ControlSend instead of Send.

But Winword have no Control ID

Perhaps should a do a mix of the link you gave me and my code but ...
