Faster way to "print" a variable than SEND?


Recommended Posts

I'm a couple of hours into using AutoIt so, bearing that in mind...

When I use the Send($string, 1) command to put the contents of a string variable into a form, it's doing so one character at a time, as though it was being entered with a keyboard.

Is there a faster way to do this -- i.e., to enter the entire string in one go?

Thanks.

This is the fastest way.

$var = "Some text you want to send..."
$backup = ClipGet()  ;save previous content of clipboard
ClipPut($var)    ;Put contents of variable in the clipboard
Send("^v")  ;Send Ctrl+V

could also try to set the following to see if that helps (default=5):

Opt("SendKeyDelay", 1)

if you use the clipget stuff you can mess up the users clip board if they have somthing important in it
