simulate Context menu

Trying to simulate right click by using sendkeys (shift f10).  But the script pauses on executing the shift+f10.

Is there a workaround for this.  ClickR is not consistent in my app.

Hi Madhi,



Try .Keys('[Apps]') - for me it works better than Shift-F10...

Alex:

Can you be more clear on this.  I tried sys.desktop.keys as well as obj.keys('[apps]')

on encountering the first single quote the line is considered as commment.  Please explain.

Hi Madhi,





Looks like you are using VBScript, so you need to use double quotes for string constants:

obj.keys("[Apps]")





Important: the constants passed to the Keys method are case-sensitive.

Hi Madhi,



Can you provide more details as for when the error occurs and a code snippet that is executed?

Hi Madhi,





Yes, we need more info to proceed. Can the control be focused manually?

For the suggested approach to work, it should be possible to do the same actions manually - focus the control and press the Apps key on the keyboard.
