The amazing disapearing octothorpe!

3 posts in this topic

I wrote a quick script to parse a file and print a report out to notepad. One of the descriptions in the report has a # in it, but it's not appearing in notepad! Check this out...

$sMsg = "This is the octothorpe -> #"

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send($sMsg & @CR)

Do I have to escape it somehow or ? I've tried using the Chr() function too but still doesn't work!

Thanks!

If you want to send an octothorpe than it needs to be in brackets, try this:

$sMsg = "This is the octothorpe -> {#}"

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send($sMsg & @CR)oÝ÷ Ø(ºWlº²Û¬xºÚ"µÍÛÛÛÙ]^

Read the help file on the Raw Flag for Send(). The "#" is being interpreted as the Window-key:

Send($sMsg & @CR, 1)
