Cannot send key strokes in chrome address bar

02 Feb 2020, 00:06

Hello all,
I'm a noob with Ahk and my issue is very simple.
Basically i want to press the shortcut key to write on the bar in Chrome and then actually send keystrokes.

Code: Select all

f1::
^l
SendInput, someText
return
the ^l part works, but not SendInput.
Anyone knows why?

Thank you in advance.

Send, {Blind}{Text} sometext

Doesn't work?

^l alone is not valid AHK syntax - like this, it cannot work. You'll need to send it.

Code: Select all

F1::
send ^l			; or:     Send {F6}
SendInput, someText
return
