TC 14.20.2175.7, google 78.0.3904.97. Typing in TC desktop, extra character drops onto screen

Use TC 14.20.2175.7,

google 78.0.3904.97.

vSphere Client

 

Typing in TC desktop, the acute character keeps dropping into my workspace, where i'm typing the script out.

 

Acute character, also known as back quote, grave, grave accent, left quote, open quote, or a push.  It's the same key where you get ~ if hold the shift key down.  

anyway, this character keeps randomly dropping onto the screen.

Technically speaking, TC only enters keystrokes that are part of a Keys method call or SetText.  You can confirm what is actually being transmitted by looking for "Event" methods in your test log corresponding to the keystrokes.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

This is not happening when i run TC.  it happens as i'm looking at the script.

The ` character drops, shows up in red.

 

See attached.  It's like an echo.

the only warning i have that it dropped this character again is the script won't run and i have to go looking for the TC error red dot with white x in it.    And sure enough the character is there again.

 

thank you!

My guess is that it's something with your VSphere Client.  I've seen similar things before, not exactly the same, but similar. Can you connect to the same machine via RDP and replicate?

I don't recall clearly, no.  I think it has something to do with settings in the keyboard drivers or something in how the keystrokes were being sent to the client.  sorry that I don't have any further information.
