Send() and ControlTextSet()


Recommended Posts

Guest JaxFlMax

I grabbed some really usefull code for inserting serial keys with dashes/spaces automatically from the forums and it worked great but now i'm trying to modify it to use a serial that is in the clipboard.

Here's an example of one of my attempts:

$serial = InputBox ("Serial Getter", "Serial Number")
if $serial='' then Exit
WinActivate ("Serial Getter")
ControlFocus ("Serial Getter", "Edit1")
Sleep(100)
Send("^v")
$serial = StringReplace( $serial, '-', '' )
$serial = StringReplace( $serial, ' ', '')
WinActivate ( "Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 Setup")
Send ( $serial )

Whether I'm trying to use ControlSetText or just Send("v") it will not paste the # into my InputBox, but if i hit ctrl-v by hand it will.

Please help!

AutoIt will not continue execution until you have closed the Inputbox.

It seems though that the InputBox itself will not accept any Send or ControlClick commands to close it. If this is a known problem then i'll learn to live with it.

You mean from another autoit3 script ?

Nevermind, you found my problem the first time: One can't simply insert commands in the middle of the InputBox. I was trying to make the install process completely automated so anyone could do it, I just renamed the InputBox to "Hit ctrl+v then hit OK"

Thanks for your help
