controlsend ":" not ";"

3 posts in this topic

i am having a problem with controlsend to an IE window:

ControlSend($hIE, "", "Internet Explorer_Server1", StringLeft($file, 1),1)

ControlSend($hIE, "", "Internet Explorer_Server1", ":",1)

ControlSend($hIE, "", "Internet Explorer_Server1", StringTrimLeft($file, 2),1)

$file is a path and a file (c:\temp.html) I have isolated the colon, because it keeps being sent as a semi-colon, which is my problem.

Is there any way to make sure this is sent as a colon? Is this a bug with autoit, or a complication of sending text to a form in IE?

I don't know how $hIE is set but opening www.google.com and running

$hIE="Google - Microsoft Internet Explorer"
ControlSend($hIE, "", "Internet Explorer_Server1", ":",1)

works as expected with the official release and the beta :whistle:

I think that doing a Send("{shift up}"), MIGHT, albeit MIGHT correct this, do that prior to sending anything at all to a control, and post findings on whether the combined control sends are corrected.
