Sendkeys.Sendwait erratic with IE7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am developing an application that connects to a serial device, filters the captured data using a regular expression, and then sends the data to an application.  The destination of this data is IE7.  I was using Sendkeys.SendWait() and it was working perfectly with everything else (IE6, firefox, notepad, etc.).  However, as soon as I tried the application with IE7, the data would get (corrupted?) all jumbled up.  I would filter something like 72.2, but what got inserted into the IE7 text box field would be something like 72..2.  Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? A work around or an alternative function?

    Thank you

  • That response is completely unexceptable.  I expect that there are a lot of people in QA who require the sendkeys functionality.  If microsoft has a solution for this, then please point us at it (as I know Microsoft does have UI automation for IE7).

    As an employee of Microsoft you are automatically a spokesperson for the company, and have access to resources which others do not.  Please post a response which will help, or at the very least send an e-mail to someone on the IE team.
