Sending a long string faster

5 posts in this topic

How can I send a whole string at once? Using "Send" writes each letter one at a time, is there a copy/paste like function for a string variable?

I am filling out a web page form, and one of the fields is some kind of mini microsoft word plugin, and I don't know how to use IEFormElementSetValue with it.

Here is the html from the page if anyone can help me figure this out too:

<div>
    <input type="hidden" id="txtJobDescription_wyswg" name="txtJobDescription_wyswg" value="" style="display:none" />
    <input type="hidden" id="txtJobDescription_wyswg___Config" value="ImageBrowserURL=%2Fusers%2Ffilemanager%2Fbrowser%2Fdefault%2Fbrowser%2Ehtml%3FType%3DImage%26Connector%3Dconnectors%2Fcfm%2Fconnector%2Ecfm&amp;LinkBrowser=true&amp;LinkUpload=false&amp;LinkBrowserURL=%2Fusers%2Ffilemanager%2Fbrowser%2Fdefault%2Fbrowser%2Ehtml%3FConnector%3Dconnectors%2Fcfm%2Fconnector%2Ecfm&amp;ImageBrowser=true&amp;StartupFocus=false" style="display:none" />
    <iframe id="txtJobDescription_wyswg___Frame" src="/webshared/FCKEditor/editor/fckeditor.html?InstanceName=txtJobDescription_wyswg&amp;Toolbar=Order" width="85%" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>
    </div>

Well when I was messing with string and external apps I just used ClipGet() and ClipPut() to copy and paste them back and forth faster...

It looks like your problem was resolved by the above post.

Another thing you could have done, instead of modifying the clipboard was to use AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay",0)

SendKeyDelay ---- Alters the the length of the brief pause in between sent keystrokes. Time in milliseconds to pause (default=5). Sometimes a value of 0 does not work; use 1 instead.
