Tab Space in strings make issue with TypeInto

Hi Team,

I need to get string from note pad which contains tab space (for eg. “test test2”). When typeinto activity try to enter this string in text area, it enter the first string then bot switch to the next field (seems bot clicked tab key). How to over come this? We can overcome this by using simulate click. But for my requirement we can’t use simulate click also.

Hi,

Can you try the following steps?

  1. Set your string data to clipboard using Set To Clipboard activity
  2. Then, send ctrl + v to the textarea using Send Hot Key activity

Hope this helps you.

Thanks everyone for the reply. I fixed by using the solution, string.replace(vbTab," ")

String.Replace(“ “,vbtab)
