Sending Keys not working.

Post by selvakumar » Thu Apr 21, 2016 5:41 pm

Hi Ranorex team,
While i am trying to send keys using method : PressKeys()
Combination of keys like
1.Ctrl + Shift + 1, (likewise all numeric values.)
2.Ctrl + A,
3.Ctrl + C,
4.Ctrl + V

I am sending the above combination of keys like :
{ControlKey down}{shift down}{D1}{shift up}{ControlKey up}
{ControlKey down}A{ControlKey up}

I tried with all possibilities.none of them are working.

Note: But shorcut like Shift + F4 are working well..

Why don't you use Key Shortcut action (Keyboard.Press() method) instead? It's more suitable for sending shortcuts than Key Sequence action (PressKeys() method).
