Keystroke commands in strings

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I have a wicked problem with concatenated strings in autioit.

I need to enter values in a password entry dialog box. To do this I need to type:

Alt-S (activate a control containing the entry fields)

<the password>

Tab (proceed to next entry field)

<the password> (password confirmation)

Enter (quit the dialog)

The whole sequence is built together within the program code, since the password differs, processed in some way and the resulting string is passed to sendkeys.

Now I need to send a Password which happens to have a "!" at the end, e.g. "Password!" Sendkeys gets the sequence

!SPassword!{Tab}Password!{Enter}

and sends Alt-S,"Password",Alt-Tab,"Password",Alt-Enter.

I cannot simply use 3 Sendkeys statements in sequence.

Is there any way I can tell Sendkeys that ! does not mean Alt but that the ! is to be sent as a normal character?

Thanx

Armin

Just use the send raw option .

this was a really quick response, thanks, but how should this Option help?

!SPassword!{Tab}Password!{Enter}

The first "!" does indeed mean Alt-Key, the others don't, how should Sendkeys know, with or without the send raw option?

This should work fine i think:

Send("!S")
Send("Password!",1)
Send("{Tab}")
Send("Password!",1)
Send("{Enter}")

:)

Good, yes, that works, but ... it's kludgy. Just use the "send raw" option... I mean that's what it's there for, after all. Makes for better, more professional looking code.
