How to write "@" with "SendWindowMessages" checked?

keyboard

#1

Hi everyone:

When I check “SendWindowMessages”, uipath set ‘2’ instead ‘@’.

Somebody with same issue?
I’m looking for smooth fix, like property or something.
I tried using substring, but maybe exist some better.

Someone know how?

Thanks!

Hey,

Since you’re using Keyboard Messages, you need to simulate the keys that you would press to write the ‘@’ character: Shift + 2. With Type activity is more complicated, you have to use the key syntax “[d(shift)]2[u(shift)]” which says to send the following events: down-shift 2 up-shift. Easier way is to use Send HotKey activity.
I attached a workflow that exemplifies these keys in notepad. Main.xaml (5.9 KB)
