Enter at character (@) using Keys method

Hello,

 

In my test script, I open the application MobaXterm then I need to enter a string that contains the at character (@).

I recorded these actions but when I played it again the @ is not entered.

In the support I found these two links:

 

 

But they didn't solved my problem.

 

Any other suggestion? Consider I use the Italian keyboard and normally to enter the at character I need to press the "Alt Gr" key plus "ò" key.

 

 

 

 

Thanks in advance, 

 

Andrea

  • I use German keyboard, for me symbol @ = "ALT GR" + "Q".

    Method "Keys" prints "@" for me without additional brackets and other characters.

    Check whether you use different languages during testing (keyboard and system, as well as application language). Maybe that's the problem.

      In the following the code lines

       

      let applications = Sys.Process("explorer").Window("Shell_TrayWnd").Window("ReBarWindow32").Window("MSTaskSwWClass", "Running applications");
      applications.Window("MSTaskListWClass", "Running applications").Click();

      let formXterm = Sys.Process("MobaXterm").VCLObject("FormXterm");
      let panSessions = formXterm.VCLObject("PanGauche").VCLObject("sPanel13").VCLObject("PCGauche").VCLObject("sTabSessions").VCLObject("PanSessions");
      panSessions.VCLObject("TreeSessions").DblClickItem("|User sessions|192.168.10.10 (admin)");
      Delay(10000)

       

      formXterm.VCLObject("sPanel1").Window("TListBox").Keys("ssh admin[@@]192.168.10.11[Enter]");

       

       

      The problem is the last line. I tried the single @ and double @ (without [ ] ) but they don't work.

        Andrea_Bonacchi ,

         

        This probably isn't very helpful, but we use Moba Personal Edition V12.4 Build 4248 and the following does work for us

        Aliases.MobaXterm.FormXterm.sPanel1.Window("TListBox").Keys("ssh admin@xxx.xxx.xx.xx[Enter]")

        FWIW, we recorded the keyword test and then converted it to a script. That probably doesn't matter but I thought I'd mention it.

        Also, we have added Moba as a TestComplete TestedApp. 

        Good Luck,

        Larry
