How to send a character independently on input locale?

3 posts in this topic

I expected

send("a")

to send letter 'a', but it sends a keystroke which depends on input locale, so if the current locale is not English, the result can be different.

send("{ASC 097}") always sends 'a'.

Obviously it is not practical to send text in hex format, so is there a way to send text which will be the same with any input locale?

Actually, it's not hex, it's decimal ascii code, and i guess you could do something like this.

Dim $Sentence = "Test sentence"

For $i = 1 To StringLen($Sentence)
    
    $char = StringLeft($Sentence, 1)
    $Sentence = StringTrimLeft($Sentence, 1)
    
    Send("{ASC " & Asc($char) & "}")
    
Next

Probably this will work, but it looks so ugly!

I cannot believe there is no way to send plain text just as Wscript SendKeys does (http://www.devguru.com/Technologies/wsh/quickref/wshshell_SendKeys.html)
