I am currently working on automating a process that inputs data into one of our bespoke inhouse systems.
I have a field (Day for date of birth) that triggers code behind when you type a number into it.
This code checks if the number is below 31, it also saves the number to a variable.
Without this code being trigger the date of birth cannot be saved.
If I use the type into activity , the code is triggered fine.
However the automation has to work in the background so I have tried using simulate type to do this.
The problem is that when i change it to either simulate type or Sendwindowsmessage to true the code behind is not being triggered and therefore the date of birth is not being saved.
I had thought of using a hotkey but I’m not sure what one to use that will reflect this .
Any suggestions would be very welcome.
Thanks in advance
