sending ctrl-r

8 posts in this topic

1. I have the following loop to send ctrl-r to active window, to make a browsed page refresh / update.

---

While 1

send ("{CTRLDOWN}")

send ("{r}")

send ("{CTRLUP}")

Sleep(1000)

WEnd

---

Is there a better syntax? I found several that are wrong, such as {^r}.

2. How could I send ctrl-r to a background window? I'd like to do other things in foreground. I don't yet understand how to get the title or handle for a window that I have not yet opened with a script.

BTW: The worst way to do it is have {CTRLDOWN} before the loop, not know that {CTRLUP} was needed, and find reboot was necessary. :idiot:

thnx

It's ^r I think, not {^r}.

Use ControlSendPlus for the background window thing, search around for the function.

Thanks to both of you for fast and good responses.

BTW "ControlSendPlus" is not in HELP. Did you mean to search forum?

--

Yep, you did. Sorry.

Ok, found a few posts. But I am not interested in "Diablo II", or similar. Just want to send ctrl-r or other simple strings to background window, such as I now enjoy in foreground. I also need something that is well documented, or I will sink.
