keys() action will miss some character

if i send "chenyang"to a textbox 

sometimes it will only send chenyng or cheang, random miss some word.

Both IE8 and IE10 have this problem, TC10 is using.

I have tried click before send keys and double check the result , but it is very unstable for IE10...  So any ideas?

Disable autocomplete in IE and check the "readystate" of the control you are sending keys to / wait for the page to finish loading before attempting to send keys. Check this articel for more information.

I see this in keyword tests, but in our client program, not a web page.  The same test will work all day and then start half-typing in a text field.   I usually have to restart the client and TC both to get it to work.

Thank you guys.  i found  changing the key pressing delay in properties of the project playback settings may help , default it is 0 .And do not set it too slow.

Good idea!  I will look at that next time I see the issue.
