Using the Code
Take a look at this: This find a window and activates, the close the form http: Hello, I've worked much with keystrokes! Wguerram has given a nice example, but I wanted to add this URL; http: Here is the part I ve copied from the website: This class cannot be instantiated. To send a keystroke to a class and immediately continue with the flow of your program, use Send.
To wait for any processes started by the keystroke, use SendWait. Each key is represented by one or more characters. To specify a single keyboard character, use the character itself. For example, to represent the letter A, pass in the string "A" to the method. To represent more than one character, append each additional character to the one preceding it.
Brackets [ ] have no special meaning to SendKeys, but you must enclose them in braces. In other applications, brackets do have a special meaning that might be significant when dynamic data exchange DDE occurs.
To specify characters that aren't displayed when you press a key, such as ENTER or TAB, and keys that represent actions rather than characters, use the codes in the following table. You must put a space between key and number. Experts Exchange Solution brought to you by Your issues matter to us.
The keys typed at the keyboard are always received by the window or contron in focus. I've tried the sendkeys method Not really sure why. One of the first keys I want to send is just the UP arrow, i.
I'm almost wondering if the splash screen of the application still has the focus when the application starts up, and therefore it cannot receive the keys because it does not have focus.
Perhaps if there was a way to "stall" for a few seconds before I sent the keys it would work. Like I said - it is not actually ignored. Just that the right control is not in focus. So, let's say that I fire up an application with a shell command So then one of these below must apply A way to get around this would be to Try this '"Personal Folders Password" is the name of my oulook password window. I mean by name, the caption title of the window. Click all way up to Button9.
Or is this referring to something else that i missed ; Thanks! I'm using DirectCast because sender is declared as an Object that's just the way event handlers work and I can assume it's a Button , so that's why I'm casting it without checks. If you code without Option Strict On , then it will compile using sender. Text , but it will be slower, and finding errors will be more difficult later.
Always turn Option Strict On! It's in your settings. I've become accustom of Option Strict On , but thank you for the tip and the very clear answer.
CoderRoller 2 14 Great answer to my 2nd half of the question CoderRoller, thank you very much! For the first half of the question: For example, instead of cut-and-paste the same code in two callback functions, you can have the same code managing two different button click events: Zac 3, 2 27 Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
