how to insert control characters?

I need to insert a Ctrl+A in my user name field so that TestComplete types over the remembered user name.  What does Ctrl+A look like in TestComplete?

For a string, enter "^a".  That should simulate the keypress.

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.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.

Hi,



In addition, I recommend that you read the "Keys Method" help topic.
