Basic notepad script

2 posts in this topic

Hey, I'm trying to get this script to work:

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send("Hey!")
Send("{CTRLDOWN}")
Send("A")
Send("{CTRLUP}")

I prints "Hey!" in Notepad, but it won't select it (it should select all because of CTRL+A). Anyone know what's wrong?

Try lower case 'a', or skip the "{CTRLDOWN}""{CTRLUP}" sequence with just "^a".

:D
