ControlSend faster alternative?

Recommended Posts

Undutchable

Hi guys,

I'm using ControlSend to fill an edit field of an external program.

I'm sending a string of 200 lines but it's so slowww..It's character by character..

Even if I set Opt("sendkeydelay", "1"), it's still slow.

Is there a way to dispatch a long string to that external edit field faster?

The alternative I can think is using clipboard? Is there another way?

Thanks!

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

Using clipboard (the smart/safe way :mellow:):

_ControlSendEx("Title", "", "Edit1", "New Data")

Func _ControlSendEx($hWnd, $sText, $iCtrlID, $sString)
    ControlFocus($hWnd, $sText, $iCtrlID)
    
    Local $sOldClip = ClipGet()
    ClipPut($sString)
    
    Send("+{Insert}")
    ClipPut($sOldClip)
EndFunc

Or you can use ControlSetText(), or if you need to append the text, then use ControlCommand() with EditPaste:

ControlCommand("Title", "", "Edit1", "EditPaste", "New Data")
