Sending text to out of focus windows.

4 posts in this topic

If this the "MetaFrame Presentation Server" Window is not highlighted, it does not received text being sent to it even though i am using "controlsend" to send the text. Below is the code, can anyone explain why this is not working.

Opt("SendKeyDelay", 1)

ShellExecute("iexplore.exe", "http://homer/citrix/MetaFrame/auth/login.aspx")

WinWaitActive("MetaFrame Presentation Server", "")

ControlFocus ("MetaFrame Presentation Server", "", "")

ControlSend("MetaFrame Presentation Server", "", "", "{TAB 8}")

ControlSend("MetaFrame Presentation Server", "", "", "hyvestra")

ControlSend("MetaFrame Presentation Server", "", "", "{TAB}")

ControlSend("MetaFrame Presentation Server", "", "", "homer")

ControlSend("MetaFrame Presentation Server", "", "", "+{TAB 2}")

ControlSend("MetaFrame Presentation Server", "", "", "Administrator")

ControlSend("MetaFrame Presentation Server", "", "", "{ENTER}")

thanks.

Are you using the Beta 3.2.3.0, I know that 3.2.2.0 had issues with ControlSend and blank ControlID parameters.

You might want to add the ClassNameNN of the main control inside the browser, e.g. "Internet Explorer_Server1" (parameter 3 of the Control* functions).
