Simulate type check box affecting subsequent activity




When ‘simulateType’ box is checked on a type into activity, the subsequent ‘send hotkey’ activity does not work (even if ‘clickBeforeTypying’ is selected)

Current Behavior:

Selects search box and types name, but does not press enter (if the type into activity has simulateType checked) and it successfully sends enter hotkey when simluateType is not checked.


Sometimes it happens and the reason is that the target 3rd party app does not have a valid implementation of the UI Framework (Active Accessibility usually).

The workaround is to try Window Messages (Enter does work too), otherwise fall back to Hardware Events.
