Shift Key Stuck

Post by GMail » Fri Aug 23, 2013 9:58 pm

Hi,

Just reporting that if I use a key sequence {LShiftKey down} without using {LShiftKey up} to revert it, the shift down state will persist in windows, even after closing Ranorex. To fix this state, I have to physically push the shift button on my keyboard to reset it.

It would be appreciated if the key down states could be reverted automatically after a test run.

G.

This is actually by design, otherwise you won't be able to set the keyboard state persistently.

You can set the keyboard to a defined state by calling the Keyboard.Set methods just before your automation process ends.
