Type Into activity error

studio

#1

In an automated process I have to type something into a client server application window. Randomly, the typed string is wrong (chars are changing position). For example, the Type Into activity receives in input the “607684” string and the bot typed “067684”. Did anyone else faced this kind of error?

Hello!

Try to uncheck the “Activate” property from the Type Into activity.

Hope It Helps!

I think I may have seen this a few times. I have been using the Delay between characters parameter and setting it to 10 or 20 just to give it a little time to type each one.

Hi @ClaytonM,

Please try to check the “SimulateType” property in TypeInto -it simulates the type using the technology of the target application it is compatible with all desktop apps.

Thanks,

Hi all

  1. with Activate unchecked the string was written in another field of the same vindow
  2. it was already set to 25 when I publish the post
  3. SymulateType checked doesn’t work. Nothing was typed.

Any other idea?
Thanks

Hello!

Please try with Send Hotkey + Set Text using the same Selector!

Hi Sorin
It’s working fine with Send Hotkey F2 followed by SetText
Thanks for the solution
