I have been using TypeText for months with no issue and then it stopped. The command would work just fine if I executed it as a single line of code but wouldn’t work if executed it from the script. Hmmm…
Was it a timing issue? Nope.
Was it a single space I found after a function variable? Nope.
Was it the new version of our code that I was testing? Nope.
Everything looked normal using Trace All.
It’s always nice to make a back-up of code as it evolves so you can compare working to non-working. A few days ago I had added some code to copy data via the remote clipboard back to Eggplant. I had added TypeText “\cC” to perform a ControlDown-C for a Windows Copy. I believe what was killing me was I didn’t come back later to do a TypeText “\C” to do a “ControlUp.” As soon as I commented that line out I was back in business again. I had tried the “\C” earlier but apparently I had done it incorrectly so it wouldn’t work. It seemed to work without it so I just continued on. Wrong… Details, details.
For more info. see Keyboard Commands of the Eggplant Reference manual, p. 137+
Possible Eggplant enhancement: add special key (Alternate, Option, Command, Control) state to the script run window.
