Tried A Couple Of Send Keys And They Will Not Send Any Keys At All

Jan 2, 2012

I tried a couple of the send keys and they will not send any keys at all. I need a true Space bar input (SendKeys does not work for me). Also, I would like this to work on 32 and 64 bit computers. Let me know if you know of any good examples. I would love to have the ability to send a string in the future, but I can add that feature myself. [code]


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 - Send Keys (Chat Spammer)

Dec 26, 2011

I've finished my chat spammer, and it's not working the way it's suppose to (In Game). However, it works properly in chat rooms. Instead of it spamming once per line, it clumps the messages together.

If FormOptions.ChFilter.Checked = False And FormOptions.CHad.Checked = False And FormOptions.ChTroll.Checked = False Then
ElseIf FormOptions.CHad.Checked And FormOptions.ChFilter.Checked = False
[Code] .....

It works if I don't check anything (This code):
If FormOptions.ChFilter.Checked = False And FormOptions.CHad.Checked = False And FormOptions.ChTroll.Checked = False Then
But the "troll" ones with multi-lines don't.

Way To Just Send Keys And Make Them Appear As If Typed Them On A Keyboard?

Aug 26, 2009

I am making an Auto Typer and it was going all good until I came apon a mysterious problem. When sending the space key or enter key with "Send Keys. SendWait" they come up with their numerical equivalent, 32 and 13.For example, a user types "test" into the textbox, and clicks "{Text} {Space} {Text}" in the options menu. The user clicks start and the output is "Text32Text32Text".Is there any way to just send the keys and make them appear as if you typed them on a keyboard?

Recored Arrow Keys And Then Tell Computer To Enter Arrow Keys?

May 23, 2010

So I found this little morpg. The game is fun but really repetitive. I would like to simplify some of the tasks in the game. I do not know how to start this project. How can I recored arrow keys and then tell the computer to enter the arrow keys? One of the objectives in the game is to run around a farm 2x and scare away any wolfs. So the commands would be "arrow key up" for 30sec and then "arrow key right" for 4 sec and repeat. I have worked with robots in real life for some time. We would fill arrays with such instructions. One of the most fun things to program! But I have no idea how to do this in VB.
