VS 2008 SendKeys.Send() Method Does Not Send The Keys Fully Correct All The Time

Nov 9, 2009


Now as you can see it is sending the textbox1 text and then pressing enter then sending textbox2 text! Theres quite a few problems in that but before i discuss note: This code is in a Timer. Problem #1: It does not send the keys fully correct all the time because its trying to send them all at once! So i want it to send them 1 letter after the other with 200 ms sleep in them! Problem #2: The sleep is not working: The reason i know is because even after it did the first textbox1 text it didnt wait that 2000 ms!


Send Keys To A Control On My Form - SendKeys.Send NullReferenceException

May 9, 2012

I am trying to send keys to a control on my form. But I am getting a NullReferenceException and I don't know why. The code is about as basic as it gets: [Code] The error reported is object reference not set to an instance of an object but Send is a shared method so doesn't need an instance. Strangely if I ignore the error it works fine and F4 is passed to the control. I know there was an issue with sendkeys and UAC but I thought this had been solved (I am using 4.0 framework).

Use The Send Keys Function To Send Text To Another Program?

Apr 29, 2009

I am trying to use the send keys function to send text to another program.I ahve gotten it al working well, except for using () as I know sendkeys doesnt like these.I have tried using the Replace function in several places in my code to replace the ( with {(} and {+0} etc, with various other options tried.But when I run the program, it seems to skip this out completly and leaves them in the string as (, and therefore it errors and wont run.When I step through it, it goes through the function but doesnt alter the strng as it should. This is the code to send the string and my attempt at making it replace the () in the module

Module TextReplacement
Private Declare Function GetAsyncKeyState Lib "user32.dll" (ByVal vKey As Int32) As Short
Dim counter As Integer
Dim sData() As String


The error I get when i try send "Test :)" is: ArgumentExcveption was unhandled "SendKeys string 'Test :)' is not valid"

VS 2010 : Difference Between SendKeys.SendWait And SendKeys.Send?

Jul 28, 2009

What is the difference between SendKeys.SendWait and SendKeys.Send?Send obviously will just send they key immediately, but does SendWait actually wait for the message to be processed or does it also send it immediately?The function's name itself is just confusing. Which one should I use if I want to send keystrokes to a 3rd party app immediately, or is there no difference? To me, a few milliseconds is a big difference.

Using SendKeys To Send To Another Application?

May 16, 2011

I cannot find any solutions so far using the MSDN search, so I'll just ask the question here. I am trying to make a "bot" so to speak for a game that I play so that I can automate movements and macros. I've never used Sendkeys method yet until today so I am very unfamiliar except for the articles I have seen on the MSDN. 

Basically, the game I play I can manually set macro keys like spacebar to perform task. What I want to do is have my application automate this process on a timed basis. Like, every 2 seconds send the key of spacebar to the other application (MapleStory.exe).

Sendkeys.send While Shift Pressed?

Mar 30, 2011

I'm using the function sendkeys.send(). I'm using it in a cell of a grid because everytime I write a letter, I deactivate an activate the control, and when this happens the whole text is selected, and I want the cursor to be placed at the end of the text. In order to to this, I use: SendKeys.Send("{end}") It usually works fine, but when I'm pressing the shift key to write capital letters, it doesn't work. I've tried to send other keys with that function while pressing the shift key. If i use

I get an A, like when I use

Should I disable the keyboard input before using the sendkeys instruction, and how should I do it?

Static nVal1 As Boolean


The problem is whenever it sends the text to another forum using the hotkey it works fine, But if the GrpTxt1 text contains the hotkey name it spams it it because the key is sending over and over again because it contains "A" the hotkey in the text.

Using SendKeys To Send A String Value That Include Brackets

Jul 13, 2009

I have developed a VB.NET (VS2005) application that performs a dependency check of VBA code to see where a selected procedure was called from. I want to add the facility to launch an application and to load the selected procedure into it's edit window. I can launch the application and, using sendkeys, I can open the application window, and the final thing is to use SendKeys to insert the function name. Now, here is the problem. Where the finction name contains parentheses, they get stripped out by SendKeys. For example where a function name is of the form "Scriptxyz(1)", then sendkeys sends the value "Scriptxyz1" to the application. I have the script name defined as a string and am using SendKeys(strName). How can I stop SendKeys from stripping out the parentheses?
