Type Into Activity only types partial value


#1

I’m trying to type a filepath and filename into the filename field of a “Save As” dialog box. Sometimes, the activity fully types the value and sometimes it stops part way through typing and goes on to the next activity.

Any idea what might be the problem?


#2

Sometimes the machine is slow and not all the keys get sent. I would suggest 3 solutions:

  • try to use SimulateType or SendWindowMessage instead
  • Set To Clipboard the text to write and then paste it in the field with Ctrl + V hotkey
  • Increase the delay between the key strokes (not really a stable solution, useful just to check if that is the problem)

Great! Thank you so much. I pasted with the hotkey and that has been working wonderfully.
