Function key not allowed when trying to automate Terminal Window


We are facing an issue where we are trying to press F6 through Send Control Keys. However , when we try , it is returning “Function Key invalid”.

Also, we are not able to use send hot keys as we are not able to indicate element if we use send hotkeys.


We can’t use Send hot key activity in Mainframe application.

It should work. Is it working manually if you press F6 ?

Please check once whether other Hot keys are working or not using Send Control Keys activity.
