Sending multiple ALT keystrokes without resending the ALT key

3 posts in this topic

Hi folks,

I'm trying to invoke an Export window from a windows menu. Manually I can do this by pressing ALT-F (to open file menu) and then without letting off of the ALT key, press "E". If I let off the alt key before pressing the e, it opens the edit menu.

So I'm wondering if there is a way to send an ALT-F and then the E without simulating a release of the ALT key.... or if there is another way to invoke the export window. I'd like to avoid mouse clicking via coordinates if possible.

Thanks.

Send("!fe")

Edit: After seeing Larry's post, I think that that is more of what you are after. Interestingly enough, running the one line above (or Larry's one line below) within SciTE takes you to an Export menu. Also note that some apps are picky about accepting only lower case letters to drive a menu.
