Hi,

I need to use send keys “Ctrl” + “Spacebar” in SAP application.

But i couldn’t find spacebar key in UiPath.

Is there anyway I could use ‘spacebar’ in send key activity?

Hi @Selva,

use ‘Send Hotkey’ with ‘ctrl’ + space.

Hi,

I need to use Alt + Space + down arrow.
I tried it using send hotkey but its not working. It may be because I am not giving the hotkeys properly.

Could you suggest a solution???

Thanks in advance

I want to select rows in excel

Hello @AnjuChandran to select a rows you need to send Shift + space and down keys.
Use Typeinto activity with following value [d(shift)] [k(down)][k(down)][u(shift)] this will select two rows from activecell
Note: Keep [u(shift)] at the end of value while modifying as per your need.

Hi @AkshaySandhu,

Thanks for your help.
Using Typeinto I am able to select the rows, but the active cell value got deleted.

Hey @AnjuChandran

If you want to select all rows till the end in excel use CTRL+SHIFT+SPACEBAR

Note - one space is there in the key section.

just make sure there are no space at the end. It should be- "[d(shift)] [k(down)][k(down)][u(shift)]"
or alternatively you try what @aksh1yadav aksh1yadav has suggested
