Limitations for the controls used

EmulateInput is not compatible with the following types of controls:
  • Image control.
  • Progress Bar control.
  • Static control.
  • OLE control.
  • Shape control,
  • HTML control,
  • Web Camera control.
  • Conference control.
  • Bar Code control.

Caution: EmulateInput does not operate on a non-interactive TSE session.

Sending a set of keys

Some keys may not be taken into account when a set of keys is sent and when the control used contains calls to Multitask in its modification code.
In this case, the set of keys must be divided into several calls to EmulateInput.
