The ‘Global Send Key Events’ function sends keystroke ‘events’ to the active application, which is not necessarily the target application. Keys are processed by whatever has focus. This differs from the Global Send Keys function which sends keystrokes to the attached application (whichever object the Application Modeller is attached to).
‘Global Send Key Events’ uses a lower-level method of sending the keys, and therefore is more likely to work with some applications. A specific example of this is a Citrix client, which will not respond to ‘Global Send Keys’ but will work with ‘Global Send Key Events’ (see related articles about sending keys to Citrix).Read More »
