#2870 closed Bug (No Bug)

AutoIt send key combinations do not work sometimes

Reported by: icemang2@… Owned by: Jpm
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


When AutoIT is used to copy and paste several hundred lines of text from a text file, line by line (each line will be copied to clipboard using clipput() and inserted into an application using ctrl-v). Sometimes, v or v will be paste into the active window instead of the actual contents of the clipboard being dumped as is specified when send ("v")or ctrlsend is used.

Can you please expalin why this is not a bug?

If command send ("v) is used, the contents of the clipboard is supposed to be input into the field that has focus. However, when it is put in a loop which iterates over 400 lines (even with the sleep function before and after the send() function) , sometimes AUTOIT sends the raw text "v" and not the command CTRL-V to the text box. The result is that "v" and not the contents of the clipboard is paste to the save-as dialog box. So, my files are sometimes saved with file-name "V". As i said previously this happens off and on.
